Extra-Curricular Activities

The After School Activity (ASA) Programme is an integral part of SDI AHASS Primary School and provides a rich variety of activities for children to participate in after the academic programme has finished. Through participation in these activities and events, children expand their horizons, learning new skills and developing new competencies. 

In addition to the physical development and the exploration of interest, children learn the thrill of challenge and competition, the importance of concentration and dedication, the spirit of teamwork and a sense of accomplishment. 

All children have the option of taking  these activities :

Children in Grade 1 – 6 are invited to take part in the teacher led activities which begin after the school day ends.

Sports Programme

The sports programme for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 is extensive and offers GEMS Jumeirah Primary School children the opportunity to further develop skills they have learnt in lessons, by participating in after school sports teams and squads. 

As they become able, competition becomes more important with inter-school fixtures throughout the year. The school runs a seasonal sports programme with teams regularly competing against other schools in the region with much success.

SDI AHASS Camps and Outdoor Trips

Every year all of the children in Grade 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are given the opportunity to participate in an outdoor experience, ranging from a one to two night camping encounter.

Camps are vital part of the learning that happens in school; it directly relates to our learning skills programme and gives children the skills to become lifelong learners. They build confidence, self-management skills and have the opportunity of be a part of a team in a fun, safe and exciting environment.

School camps are memory making moments, when children get the opportunity to step out of their comfort zones and try new activities and learn new skills.

Activities which the children take part in are all based on the theme of confidence building and team work.   The camps are a popular event within the school calendar and it is with thanks to all the instructors, teachers and children for making it such a memorable experience!

All children experience a wide range of school trips throughout the academic year which enhance their learning and support the curriculum.  This is a great part of their learning journey.
