Dubai, UAE, 22 January 2020:   Dubai International Academy (DIA), an International Baccalaureate school run by Innoventures Education, is celebrating the start of the year with two awards under its belt.

The school had an impressive start of the year at Under-11 WSG and Under-13 WSG categories and won gold at Under-17 WSG Basketball.

He will receive his award at the first MEYE 2020 on 5th February in Abu Dhabi. 

MEYE brings together thousands of young people in the Middle East to empower them with tools, inspiration and direction to achieve their life goals as future responsible global citizens.

As a member of Showcase School programme, DIA EH's commitment to school-wide transformation will be guided by Microsoft's Education Transformation Framework that starts with a clear and common vision and is sustained through a culture of learning, innovation and continuous improvement.

Innoventures Education was also shortlisted in the ‘Innovation in Education Award' category at the 2020 Global Educational Supplies & Solutions (GESS) Awards for its Bug Bytes Bus.
