The term ‘co-scholastic activities’ is used for both cognitive and non-cognitive development that can take place by exposing the child to the scholastic and non-scholastic subjects. At DPS Sharjah, they are integral parts of the curriculum and included in the routine of the school for the holistic development of our children.
Even in hybrid learning, our educational program continues to provide a range of co scholastic activities to nurture latent talents in our pupils and provide
them with sufficient opportunities to portray talents and raise their sense of achievement. The program also creates social and environment awareness in the students and helps them develop a spirit of service towards the extended community.
The ACE PROGRAM of DPS Sharjah caters to the wellbeing and overall holistic development of our students. The various activities enable them to develop key inter-personal skills which cannot be fully realized in the classroom, while allowing them to pursue their interests outside the purely academic context. These innovative programs also enhance social skills, develop teamwork abilities, and provide students with opportunities to relieve stress, build resilience and learn to manage their time more effectively. The program works under three domains: ACTIVITY CREATIVITY ENVIRONMENT & COMMUNITY OUTREACH
