It is intended to remove stress, promote physical fitness, and help people achieve self-fulfillment. Sports Day targets students, faculty and administrative members, parents, and employees from ADEC’s regional offices.

Mr. Mohammed Salem Al Dhaheri, ADEC’s School Operations Executive Director said that the ADEC took part in this initiative to emphasize the importance of sports in improving mental and physical health and supporting a healthy lifestyle. He pointed out that the initiative promotes fair competition and teamwork skills, important physical education concepts, as well as strengthens the bond among parents, school officials, and ADEC.He further explained that ADEC is the first public entity to develop and implement ‘hiking trails’ within its institutional facilities, and added that the move encourages interactivity as part of a person’s daily lifestyle.
