FRIENDS OF THE AQUILA SCHOOL (FOAQS)
Together, we can do amazing things!
As a school, we are keen to engage with all members of the school community to promote cohesion and school connectedness – as well as to raise the profile of the school within the local community. All family members and staff are automatically members of FOAQS.
Friends of The Aquila School was set up to establish a valuable and supportive link between the school and families. This is an opportunity for families to provide feedback and suggestions straight to school leadership, shaping how the school grows and develops further for existing and future children.
Throughout the school year FOAQS work alongside school staff to arrange events with a learning focus for Aquila children as well as family events such as Tabletop Sale, Global Day, Winter Souq and Community Iftar. FOAQS also provide workshops such as Learning Arabic for Parents, Kitchen Garden, and Dubai 30×30 Family Fitness, to further promote school community involvement and engagement.
FOAQS host regular meetings throughout the academic year to provide families with a community network, which all members are encouraged to attend. Details about FOAQS meetings can be found on the school app.
Become a FOAQS volunteer, it is FUN!
We are constantly seeking volunteers for various opportunities to help our school community thrive. Volunteering is a great way to get involved, meet new people, and support our school. There is no minimum time commitment required nor a limit to the number of times you can volunteer.
Typically, we maintain a general list of volunteers whom we contact via email whenever help is needed, but if there is something more specific, you would like to lend a hand in please let us know.
Become a FOAQS Volunteer it is fun, and we would love to have you!
