Parent Teacher Association (PTA)





International Day

Enhancing our community

We are a very active and friendly group of parents and teachers with two specific ambitions: to enhance the experience of the Jebel Ali School community through entertaining events and activities, and to gather funds for the nice-to-have elements that further enrich the school.

Jebel Ali School is a magical school with a unique spirit that flows throughout. The PTA aims to both harness and amplify this spirit by involving students, staff, parents, and the local community in our activities.

We’ve organised Winter Fairs and International Days, supported ‘World Book Day’, movie evenings (for the students), quizzes (for the adults), community Iftars and lots more… and we’re always looking for new members and new ideas to add to the fun.



We know there can be certain perceptions about getting involved with a school PTA… maybe you think it will take up too much time, or ‘they’ already have enough people, or that it might be a bit ‘cliquey’! None of this is true of the Jebel Ali School PTA.

Everyone has busy lives with work and family commitments… We understand this and welcome ANY help you can give us. Core members offer a fair amount of their spare time, but we split events between teams, and members can say how much they are able to be involved.

We also run a volunteer list that we call upon when we need short bursts of additional help – for example, chaperoning a movie evening for an hour, or taking home materials to make decorations. Perhaps you have a specific skill that you can offer occasionally – prop-making, accountancy, baking, graphic design? Or perhaps your company could offer a prize or partner with us at a PTA event? Any contribution is greatly valued.

Our events only happen because of the people involved – and the more people we have, the less time everyone has to put in. Conversely, if no-one steps forward, we miss opportunities to do great things for our children. So please – we definitely need you!

Finally, we are a very open, fun and friendly group and we make sure we have lots of laughs along the way…if it wasn’t fun, we wouldn’t do it! Many of us have found the PTA a great way to make friends, and we arrange regular social events for the team as well. So if you are new to the school or don’t know many people, please come along to a meeting and say hello!

If you’d like to join the PTA, offer help from your company, or get involved another way, please contact today.
