Sports Day 2016

In order to align with the National Sports Day and with the instruction of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, we will be hosting DCSN’s Sports Day on November 24 from 9:00-12:30.

During the previous years, we were really delighted to share this day with supporters and friends whose presence was really heart warming.

This is a themed day during which our students are divided into teams and wear costumes that are hand made and designed by them. Visitors will be divided into the various teams and will take part in the sport competitions helping their teams win.
We are looking forward to another great event this year.
