PADIA events are listed in the school calendar and range from informal parent coffee mornings to whole school events like our hugely popular International Day. All PADIA events are promoted by the school through our Parent Portal.
Two bake sales will be organized every year. Parents bring to school home baked goodies for PADIA to sell. Items are available from as little as AED 1 up to AED 5. Students visit the bake stalls in their class breaks, with their teacher. Parents can come and buy some goodies at pick up time, to eat at school or take away.
One evening dedicated to the family at DIA. Parents bring food "pot luck style" for a small group of people to DIA. A buffet is built up and always serves everybody's taste!
On two days in December Santa Claus is visiting DIA and meets with KG and ES classes for nice pictures and each students leaves with a small gift.
Items no longer used but still in fabulous condition - get it to the DIA Garage Sale. Of course it's been taken care of hunger and thirst.
Summer approaching, its time for the Gelato Day at Secondary School. PADIA shows up with delicious ice cream for free!
PS Movie Night
PADIA hosts a fun movie evening at school, with popcorn and drinks provided.
This is a wonderful day where we celebrate our cultural diversity after school hours with fabulous stage performances and fun activities, stalls representing many of our home countries many providing great food. These stalls are organized by parents from or connected with the country in question and overall coordinated by the PADIA Core Group.
Held annually, this is a wonderful event with many stalls selling unique and interesting goods. Experience the excitement of an Arabian Souk at DIA with fun activities for the children and plenty for parents to buy. This is a great way to do all your holiday shopping while spending a fun afternoon at school with family. Great smell coming from different types of food.

The PADIA Fun Day is a fun filled day at the end of school year, funded by money raised by PADIA during the year.
