A child’s day does not end with the ringing of a bell, nor does their boundless energy. One of the ways to channel this energy in a productive and constructive way is to sign your child up for an co-curricular activity or two. DIS offers an extensive activities’ programme; co-curricular sports include football, basketball, rugby, netball, tennis and swimming. A vocal and instrumental programme offers a broad range of musical study. Band, chorus, dance and art programmes are also offered along with other academic and non-academic programmes. There is a significant evidence to demonstrate that activities pursued outside of normal school hours have a profound and positive impact upon the development and well-being of children. In addition, a wide range of trips are organised within Dubai and beyond. Most recent overseas visits include Nepal, Austria, Iceland and London.
