Deira International School

Outdoor Education

The 2018-2019 academic year promises to provide many more experiences across a variety of ages, curricula and culture/adventure ranges. All trips abroad have a cultural adventure and/or ongoing local charity projects. Deira International School is committed to sustaining its capacity to undertake challenging expeditions that contribute to students’ personal growth.   

Students are exposed to diverse environments to provide challenging, safe and responsible learning experiences beyond the classroom. We have successfully conducted student expeditions and educational tours to such locations as New Zealand, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Lebanon, Germany, Iceland, Nepal, Austria, Mauritius, Vietnam, Sweden, Malawi and much more. Fantastic residential camps in the UAE are currently provided for students from Year 4 to Year 9. It is expected that all students attend these annual camps.

Many opportunities exist during holiday periods for students to engage in exciting holiday adventure programmes taking place at our wonderful campus as well as at some of the best activity centers across the UAE. These holiday adventure programmes are currently catering for our students from Year 3 to Year 8 and have become an additional bonus for those wishing to try new things and gain valuable life skills with their peers. 

Deira International School is also proud to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award from Year 10. Universities and potential employers around the world recognise these qualifications as valuable assets for students applying for positions on courses, and look favorably upon those who have achieved Bronze, Silver or Gold status. Millions of young people worldwide have taken up the Award challenge. These Award qualifications will have a lasting positive impact on student’s behaviour, skills and life chances. The Awards have been implemented at Deira International School in order to promote many of the skills students require when continuing learning beyond the classroom.

We have a very busy & exciting calendar this year!  Please check the links on this page to see the dates & destinations for each of the camps & trips abroad planned for the 2018-19 academic year.
