Dar El Tarbiah IGCSE 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 IGCSE Schools than just the classroom. Start exploring our activities here.

Dressing Party.

Science Fairs

The science fair project is the culmination of hard work and persistent investigation. It affords a young scientist the opportunity to share their interests with parents, relatives, neighbors, and teachers as well as the chance to be interviewed by the judges who are scientists, engineers, doctors, and others with scientific interests.The opportunity significantly contributes to the education of students in the thinking process of formulating the project and actually making the experiments. It may mean the beginning of a life-long fascination with science.

  • Learn and practice critical thinking, inquiry and investigative skills.

  • Develop organizational skills.

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.
    • trips to Guiza Zoo.
    • visits to universities and university/careers fairs.
    • trips to Art galleries, museums and drama/music performances.

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 IGCSE Schools students are the future leaders of their communities. By offering service to the cairo community, Dar El Tarbiah IGCSE 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 IGCSE 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.

There are sufficient resources present to offer adequate programs at all levels. The school or system of schools operates in the public interest; and all, or nearly all, resources obtained for educational purposes are dedicated to the education of students, the administrative, instructional, and support staff are appropriately qualified for assigned duties.
