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.
