NEWS: Mr Thomas Harenberg from the DISD board would like to draw your attention to a sporting event in Sports City:

Ultimate Racenight Meet No 6, on Thursday, May 18, 2017.

It takes place at the Dubai Sports City Rugby Park stadium. You can park at Fit Republik/ICC Acadamy.

This is an athletics event for all age groups. Mr Harenberg will participate with his children and would be glad if some more students would also be interested.

As a support, Mrs Greipel, Mr Brösgen, and Mr Harenberg will be available on this day and will take over the warm-up and coordination on the ground.

Registration is very simple and can be done via the following link:

Please register by the end of the week with the following entries: name, date of birth, “new competitor” (or if already participated, please enter the starting number), German International School Dubai, age class and competition type (if you are not sure, it is not a problem. In case you have put the wrong competition type, the organizer will correct it).

The students can start in a maximum of 4 disciplines. Please inform the school about the registration of your child by sending an e-mail to The starting fee is 80 AED per participant and is payable at the registration desk of the sporting event.

Since your child is representing DISD, the school will pay the starting fee. For reimbursement please bring the receipt to the cashier’s office.

The participation counts toward the Oktagon.

A few tips for the right competition:

  • Everyone can participate in the sprint disciplines.
  • Taking part in the middle-distance of 1500 m is recommended only if the student has already run such or a longer distance.
  • This also applies to the disciplines of hurdles, spear throwing and high jumping! Students who nevertheless dare to take part in the high jump, receive Mr Harenberg’s full support.

The event starts at 5.00 pm with sprints. To have enough time for the warm-up and some explanations, the participants will meet at 16:15 pm in the stadium (at the registration desk opposite of the stands). All participants should wear their DISD school uniform sportswear.
