Activities

Dar El Tarbiah American Schools provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities designed to stimulate, excite, and give students a structured but enjoyable way to make friends and learn new skills outside the classroom. We encourage staff and students to take part in after-school activities at clubs.

Not only does it enhance the sense of community and togetherness at the School but it helps students become settled more quickly better understand their goals and interests, and integrate faster with their classmates. From sports teams to Film Club, Amnesty International, Debating Society, and our Earth Awareness clubs, students work and play together in a way that's fun, fulfilling, and breaks down the barriers between age groups and between students and staff.

There's more to Dar El Tarbiah American Schools than just the classroom. Start exploring our activities here.

Spelling Bee

A spelling bee is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell a broad selection of words, usually with a varying degree of difficulty.

The concept is thought to have originated in the United States, and spelling bee events, along with variants, are now also held in some other countries around the world which use imperfect writing systems.

Trips

Trips outside of school form an integral and influential part in the development of all our students. Even if the trip appears to be ‘just for fun’, most trips have a specific curricular purpose, such as learning the history of Ancient Egypt at the tombs and temples of Luxor or examining the tourism industry in El Gouna. Others develop individual skills and character, such as the Ski Trips, or combine theses with skills to support learning and further progress,such as preparing for university admissions during the Sixth Form trip to Europe.

Type of Trips

  • Cultural Visits.
  • Residential visits.
  • Foreign Visits.
  • Senior School Trips.
    • Trips to the various pyramid/tomb sites and complexes along the Guiza plateau.
    • trips to Old Cairo.

Sports

We have also tried to make sports and activities an integral part of our school activities. We offer a wide range of choices and opportunities for both individual and group experiences. Our smartly charted sport activities can genuinely help a student to develop his or her personal skills and interests.

We facilitate opportunities for our student to choose the sport or game that suits him/her better according to their interests only. Programs may be added or canceled according to student interest and availability of staff and facilities. Our school seeks to cultivate a sense of National Responsibility to our students since they are going to be the rulers of the nation someday.

Thus to make our future secured we make our students smart enough and help them to develop physical strength through Physical Education. Our expertise has allowed us to provide our students with an array of sports like BasketBall, VolleyBall, Cricket, Football, Hockey and many more.

Community Services

Dar El Tarbiah American Schools students are the future leaders of their communities. By offering service to the cairo community, Dar El Tarbiah American Schools students have an opportunity to see aspects of their community that they might not normally appreciate. Community service offers students an opportunity for social, emotional and intellectual growth. Reaching out to the Cairo community creates goodwill, as well as benefits local charitable organizations. The Dar El Tarbiah American Schools community service club is an extra curricular student activity that has multiple aims, including:

  • Engaging students in their community.
  • Raising awareness of needs within the community.
  • Acting to better the community.
Members of the Community Service Club were involved in several projects in the 2012-2013 academic year. Most importantly, they conducted a drive to fundraise money to pay for the tuition of students in neighboring Egyptian public schools. The project aimed at raising awareness of serious needs in the Egyptian society. Education is one of the sectors in need of major reform. An increasing number of families are unable to pay fees because of other school-related costs, such as shoes, books, uniforms, class material, etc. The media in Egypt also highlighted this crisis.
