Whether you are a newly enrolled parent at SZPA or have been with us for some time, it is always helpful to touch on some reminders and provide our families with guidance to some frequently asked questions. 


What are the school timings?


Do you have a cafeteria in school?

Yes, an in-school catering service is available for grades 2 to 12. This service is provided by "Fresh Bite Paprika Catering". They offer a “grab and go” service only. This includes hot and cold food in pre-wrapped portions. 

Pre-K to grade 1 students should bring a healthy snack to school each day.

Grade 2 to grade 3 students can bring a healthy snack to school each day and parents have the option to order food from the school canteen which will be delivered to the homeroom during break time (orders will be online from the student canteen account).

Grade 4 to 12 students can bring a healthy snack to school each day or they can purchase food from the school canteen.


How do I add money to my child’s cafeteria account?

Please visit www.freshbitecatering.ae and navigate to the "Meal Order" section. Once you've logged in, you will find your children listed under your account. From there, you can select the option to recharge your child's account.


Do you offer bus transportation?

Bus services run Monday through Friday on Abu Dhabi Island only. The school bus services for The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Girls are provided by Emirates Transport.

This is partly a result of the regulations established by the Department of Transport which stipulate that student bus routes must not exceed a duration of 60 minutes from the starting point to the final destination.

More information about the bus service is available by calling the SZPAG number: 02- 6195555.


Can I purchase my child’s uniform online?

Yes, uniforms can be purchased in store and/or online from the Globe Uniform shop located on The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Girls campus. Please visit the Uniform page on the school website or call the Uniform shop at 026195585 for further information.
