In June 2013, Yara Hattab achieved a perfect score of 45 points in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. This makes her one of only 108 students worldwide to achieve this out of the 127,000 students who received Diploma results in 2013! To achieve this exceptional academic performance, Yara was awarded a grade 7 in six Diploma subjects as well as the maximum bonus points from her Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge essay and presentation, and Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) activities.
To help the people affected by the devastating Typhoon Haiyan. We held a CAS day where students were invited to wear their own clothes in return for a donation to help the Philippines. From 17th-21st we are accepting donations of rice and blankets to send to the worst affected areas.
Last week was Safety Week in Primary School! Supported by Buckle Up UAE, Emirates Driving Institute and Wild Wadi, Early Years students learnt about the importance of car, water and personal safety.

To help raise awareness and money for Breast Cancer Research in the UAE, DIS turned pink for the day! Students dressed from head to toe in pink clothing in exchange for a 10AED donation. We are very proud to announce that we raised over 4000AED from all of the donations made! Before the annual 'Walk For Life', the Secondary students created this incredible human pink ribbon!
Eight students gave up their weekend to attend the second annual Qatar Leadership Conference, hosted by Georgetown University in Qatar.
