DISD Oktagon is a unique, all in all competition, which demands and promotes commitment to sport as well as dealing with (mathematical brain) teasers.

The mathematical competitions are the Mathematik-Olympiade or the Känguru-Wettbewerb, and the sports competitions are the Dubai Marathon or the “Color Run“.

With every participation in a sports event the competitors gain points according to the chart displayed at the school. They will gain additional points for each round reached (in the math competitions) and for every kilometer they ran or swam. Further the students will receive bonus points if parents or other adults are taking part in sports events together with them.

Based on the achieved points a “student of the month” is ascertained monthly. At the end of the school year the winners of each grade and the winner of the year are going to be awarded.
