The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Boys offers students the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of extracurricular activities (ECAs) to address different interests and to enrich student experiences. The school offers a wide range of activities including clubs, sports, arts, leadership opportunities and enrichment activities. ECAs assist students in developing skills and healthy social behaviors with the opportunity to build new friendships. Participation in ECAs supports our students in building self-efficacy, promotes good citizenship and school spirit, and encourages them to become actively and constructively involved in our community and beyond.
ECAs are offered each term and commence within the first few weeks of school. Students will be offered a variety of activities they can participate in after school on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The success of each activity depends on the enthusiasm and commitment of the student and their parents. Students are highly encouraged to participate in at least one ECA per term.
You will receive a letter during the first week of the term, outlining the ECAs offered. Please have your child choose the activity in which he/she would like to participate. A website link will be put on ParentPoint that will allow you to choose an ECA with available space. Space is limited for each activity and participation is on a first come, first serve basis. Most of the activities will begin immediately after school at 3:00pm and end at 4:00pm. It is very important that all children are collected from ECAs precisely at 4.00pm unless otherwise notified. Late pick-up from ECAs may result in your child being withdrawn from the activity. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
Most ECAs are run by SZPAB teachers for no charge. In addition, the school partners with approved outside providers such as E-Sports (ESM) who contract professional coaches to offer even more selections for our students at a minimal charge.
