GEMS World Academy - Dubai Parent Association

A dedicated community created by and for all our GEMS World Academy - Dubai Parents.

Welcome to GEMS World Academy - Dubai Parent Association (GWAPA)

We have a very active Parent Association at GWA (GWAPA). The main focus is to support the students to thrive in a safe and happy environment, combining fun, family, and putting in practice the cornerstones of the IB programme.


GWAPA keeps our Academy community connected through our organised social events. The amazing diversity of our community is what inspires us to organise and celebrate several occasions during the academic year.

Our main events are:

  • UAE National Day

  • Winter Festival

  • International Day

  • Spring Festival


We also organise events that help raise funds for Dubai Cares charity, and also create awareness about important issues; such as Pink Day and Movember.

Every GWA parent is GWAPA, and our main priority is always our community. The generous contribution and participation of our students, parents, Senior Leadership Team, teachers and staff in our events is what makes us successful and motivates us to do more and better.

Our Parent Ambassador Programme gives a great opportunity to connect our new parents with the community, and it is an inclusive programme that every GWA parent is invited to participate in.

Should you wish to contact GWAPA, please send us an e-mail on [email protected].

GWAPA also run a pre-loved uniform shop, Dragon's Den, located at the Academy ground floor next to the Accounts office. Our opening hours are Monday - Thursday 07:45 - 08:30 and 14:45 - 15:30, Friday: Closed.

Looking forward to meeting as many of the GWA parents, carers and GEMS World Academy community during this academic year.

Sincerely yours,


Zeina Mouhawej Khattar 

GWAPA President 2021/2022
