Parent Engagement

Parent Engagement

Sunmarke continues in the tradition of a Fortes school with a strong Parent Engagement Programme. Parent’s are as much a part of our community as the children and are involved in all aspects of school life. 

Parents participate with their child’s education by attending assemblies, Parent’s Evenings, helping out with reading clubs and joining our popular monthly Wellness Wednesdays sessions which provide them with useful parenting and lifestyle advice from our School Counsellors or external speakers.

The Parents Association – FOSS

The Friends of Sunmarke School (FOSS) play a central role in our school, organising various community events throughout the course of the year. Some calendar favourites are Movie Night, International Day, Cup Cake Sales, Mother’s Day, the Dance-A-Thon and the Spring Egg Hunt to name a few.

They also provide vital support to parents and families joining the School or who have just moved to Dubai. The FOSS coffee mornings and the FOSS ‘Healthy Hub’ are a great way to make new friends and socialise.

If you would like to know more about the activities and events organised by FOSS or how to join this parent body, please contact


Wellness Wednesday

Wellness Wednesday sessions are held once a month and allow parents to hear from a variety of specialist speakers and experts on topics that are important to them and their families. We cover a wide range of topics that are linked to the most recent research in child development and best practices in Positive Education.

Check out our video recordings to learn how to manage stress and anxiety, build resilience, practice cyber safety, and more!

Register for our ‘Wellness Wednesday’ session on 30th November, 8 to 9 am, to hear Mr. Henry Craig, Assistant Headteacher, speak about supporting children and teens to build resilience and cope with life challenges.
