Annual Theme 2020-21 – FIT DEENS
To suit the unusual needs during unprecedented times , we launch our Theme for the Year “FIT DEENS”.
Deens Academy takes a holistic view of fitness, integrating physical, emotional, and environmental well-being, fuelling the body, engaging the mind, and nurturing the spirit.
The theme activities will be infused seamlessly into daily routines of the children across all grades to include age appropriate activities. We hope to engage parents and the extended communities to adopt these fitness ideas to suit the changing environment.
