IAA Hawks football participated in the MEUC football championship for the third year in a row with their U11 and U12 teams.
The boys played tremendously throughout the tournament and came back with lots of medals. They played around 10 matches in 2 days and the boys really showed the true Hawks spirit that IAA strives for.
Congratulations to our U12 boys for winning the championship once again. Thank you our U11 student athletes for always giving your best.

‘IAA Wellness’ comprises of five components: School Environment, Nutritional, Medical, Coaching and Physical Education services. Wellness initiatives pertaining these categories will be launched throughout the year.
Great job IAA Dead2Red teams!
Our teams showed incredible perseverance and resilience as they ran the 242km Dead Sea to Red Sea race to support Al Hussein Society, an NGO helping the physically-challenged.
IAA Happy Feet Plus came in 3rd in 14h 31min, IAA Happy Feet made it in 16h 49min and Student Hawks made it in 18h 29min. This achievement would not have been possible without the great effort of the students, coaches and parents who supported this event.
Thank you team and support staff. You made us proud.
