Abu Dhabi HomeSchoolers Association welcomes all home educating families in the UAE. Join us as we support each other to give our children great educational experiences.

If you are just beginning your homeschooling journey in the UAE, you may want to start by joining the conversation on our Facebook page. This is a safe place to discuss all things “homeschooling,” everything from suggestions on how to start your homeschooling journey to where to find ammonia for a science experiment.

An active, close-knit homeschool group is a crucial component for homeschooling success. During the school year, please join homeschooling families at the “KFC Park” near Zayed Sports City every Monday late afternoon to visit and play.  Bring your folding chair to join our circle "in the shade" to visit while our children play.

ADHSA Clubs PDF Print E-mail

ADHSA has as one of its goals to foster community through the development of special interest groups we call clubs.

Based on anactivity or subject matter, Clubs can run the gamut from Math to Mahjong, History to Harmonicas--anything goes!

 

Currently existing clubs
  •  Field Trip Club
    In the past, all ADHSA members were obligated to organize one field trip. While this worked  well for some families,  it proved to be a poor fit and a burden for others. Thus ADHSA formed a separate club for interested families.

Field Trip Club:

  • Is  self governing under the guidance of ADHSA Executive
  • Adheres to the ADHSA Code of Conduct
  • In partnership with ADHSA Exec, will be responsible organizing the All Homeschooler event: Fall Kick Off(September) ,  and the 2 ADHSA-wide events: Fall Party (November)and Kidzania (May).
  • Members must take part in organizing at least one field trip
  • Organizes Shared Learning Events which can be opened to all ADHSA members, at the club’s discretion
  • Will be coordinated by an ADHSA member other than an ADHSA Exec Member
  • FT Coordiantor and ADHSA Exec are exempt from having to organize a field trip
