Extra Curricular

At Dubai Heights Academy we see our extra curricular programme as one way that we can help your child build their skills outside of the classroom.

In addition to building skills within a specific discipline, extra curricular activities are great for developing general academic and soft skills while finding an area they enjoy or excel at can boost self-confidence.

While pupils have the opportunity to pursue a wide range of study areas through core subjects and electives, extra curricular activities allow pupils to explore an interest in more depth than what is covered in class — or maybe even find a completely new interest that they wouldn’t have been exposed to otherwise. They can also provide a great chance for students to broaden their perspective of the world, particularly those involved in volunteering and community service programmes.

Extra curricular activities allow your child to be part of a group or team and provide a sense of belonging, with extra curricular activities offering an opportunity for your child to interact with others with similar interests and potentially build friendships outside of their usual circle.
