Behind the scenes at DISD – Preparations before the first day of school

Even during the summer holidays and especially shortly before the school starts, the administrative apparatus of the school does not stand still and the preparations are in full swing.

A large part of the classroom equipment, sports equipment, materials for school and kindergarten come from Germany in order to be able to guarantee the best quality for a healthy learning environment and education corresponding to the German curriculum. Margit Weber, procurement officer at DISD, begins researching and planning the purchases and transport to Dubai long before the summer holidays. For the transport, the school was provided with the 40-foot container by the newly won school sponsor DHL Global Forwarding.

The large delivery arrived punctually before the first day of school on Saturdays. Kindergarten director Matthias Preiss had also come to the school to actively support Ms Weber. Together with the DHL staff, they unpacked the materials. Within a few hours, the entire delivery was unloaded and distributed to the school and kindergarten. The school would like to take this opportunity to thank DHL, Ms Weber and Mr Preiss for their commitment.
