DEAA aims and objectives

DEAA endeavours to:

  • Offer and promote the finest inter-school programs for the students of our schools, focusing on sports not widely available in the community.

  • Provide an opportunity for teachers who enjoy coaching to utilize their expertise with those who hold the similar interests.
