GEMS Wellington Academy – Silicon Oasis has a wide range of activities run by staff to enrich the students' learning and our curriculum, supporting the children’s development in the creative and performing arts as well as in sport.
About the activities
We currently have over 90 Extra Curricular Activities where students can participate with both recreational and competitive objectives, including; Rugby, Basketball, Athletics, Science, Maths, Book Club, Choir, Stragegy Games, Arabic, Debating, Cricket, Ball Skills and Band.
Fixtures will also be played in a number of sports between other schools in Dubai. We currently have inter-school squads in Football, Rugby, Netball, Swimming and Athletics.
How to register your child for Extra Curricular Activities (ECAs):
The Academy will issue a list of available clubs at the end of the previous term, and will advise a timescale for sign up
Students will discuss the programme with their parents and will nominate their preferred ECA choices within the sign up period.
Once the sign up period has closed, we will endeavour to initially allocate 1 ECA to each student, where they have provided sufficient options for us to do so.
All clubs will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
Once everyone has been allocated one activity, we will then endeavour to allocate further choices if availability/choice combination allows.
E-Sports is Dubai's leading sports training academy for both children and adults of all levels. These programs include, tennis, football, swimming, cricket, rugby, climbing, holiday camps and much more. Our main aim is to provide all students with the knowledge and tools to better themselves within the sport, with the focus on enjoyment through learning
GEMS have engaged the services of E-Sports for additional activities and these will run after our free school based activities. There are costs for all these activities as detailed on the attached schedule. Places are not guaranteed and are allocated if vacancies are available and on a first come, first served basis at the specific sign up days allocated to the various schools.
However, as we cannot have unsupervised children at school waiting to attend a club which starts later in the day, we ask you to please select a school club which slots in on the same day as your paid activity, unless you are prepared to collect at 2.50pm and return your child to their coaching session at the later time.
