Our Community

At Al Shohub we strongly believe the school is at the heart of the community. It is where families come
together, where celebrations take place and of course, it is a hub for learning. This does not just apply to
our student and parent body, but for all members of local community.

Our Parent Community

Every parent of Al Shohub automatically becomes a member of the Al Shohub Parent Association (ASPA), when their child joins our school. We encourage all of our parents, both mothers and fathers, to engage in their child’s learning, but also in the life of the school as a whole. Our parent community provides invaluable feedback, and this is used to support the continued development of the school.

Our Local Community

Conveniently situated in Khalifa City A, we encourage community groups, whether sporting, academic or social to take advantage of our school facilities outside of school operating hours. These include:

  • Auditorium
  •  Indoor gymnasium
  •  Indoor swimming pool
  •  Outdoor basketball court
  •  Dance studio

If you are interested in hiring one of our spaces, please contact us on (02) 555 9995 ext. 110 or email sfo@alshohub.org
