The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Girls offers students the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of extracurricular activities [ECA] to address different interests and to enrich student experiences. The school offers a wide range of activities including sports, the Arts, leadership opportunities, enrichment activities including STEAM, and clubs. ECAs assist students in developing skills and healthy social behaviors with the opportunity to build new friendships. Participation in ECAs supports our students to build 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 Monday, Tuesday 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 a variety of ECAs and at least one per term.
Most ECAs are run by the SZPAG teachers for no charge. In addition, the school partners with approved outside providers such as ESM who contract professional coaches to offer even more selections for our students at a minimal charge. You will receive a letter early in the term outlining the ECAs offered for that term. Please have your child choose the activity they would like to participate in and complete the form immediately as space is limited for each activity. The sign-up and payment for external contracted ECAs should be made to the provider directly.
