            the school is trash now. When i first came to cas i loved it i had amazing teachers but now the school sucks. First of all the students are drunk, one of the students drank vodka and some of the teachers are weird, every school in dubai gets vacations but we never which sucks, they want our money so they beg us to spend 10 dirhams to wear something sometimes in morning announcements and most importantly THEY REMOVED THE WHIPCREAM ON THE CARROT CAKE. WHY CARROT CAKE IS GREAT AND SO IS WHIP CREAM. the only good teacher is mr johnson

            This school is fine. But I don't like how when there is an event where we can dress normal clothes, we have to pay 10 AED! Not only that, but the dress code is downright stupid. We have to wear the schools jackets and Black shoes! The black shoes are fine but I'm not going to drop 30 Dhs on a jacket that I'm only going to wear in school! And the excuse they give is "It's part of the uniform" I am not a fan of the dress code. BUT WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU REMOVE ICING FROM THE CARROT CAKE!!1!!!!!!
