This School Does not Just Educate Your Children but Also Teaches Them the Importance of Giving Back
As cliché as it may sound, but it’s inevitable that our children are our future. This is why education is a vital factor for building economies. However, education is not just astonishing science facts, complex mathematical equations, and history books; it’s beyond that. Raising the future generation should involve-extracurricular activities that would actually contribute to their personal growth into potential leaders. One school that stands as a great role model for other schools in Egypt is definitely Maadi British International School (MBIS) and here’s why.
MBIS, one of 300 schools that were accredited by the Council of British Schools (COBIS) and rated as ‘excellent in all areas’ by the UK Independent Schools Inspectorate, offers a truly unique education system. The school is the most international in Egypt, with a large pool of 52 other nationalities, offering children the chance to develop a global mindset. Additionally, the school lives by five core values; resilience, resourcefulness, reflectiveness. relationships, and respect, and fully promote these in their education, faculty, and students.
“We provide high-quality learning with high-quality enjoyment,” Mr. Richard, the Head Teacher said. “We want to develop children in every sense; academically and personally, through a structured, progressive programme of fun, learning-focused experiences”. Recent proof of that is the school’s latest collaboration with Marwa Fayed’s Toy Run Association, a community development organization that was initially started to make a change in culture. The association works towards empowering children and helping them become the change-makers of tomorrow. The collaboration between both parties is an opportunity to engrave the importance of giving back to society in children. That’s why a one-day Toy Run was conducted on the 10th of December, 2018, where all the school kids donated unused and new toys, carefully wrapped them and delivered them in person to a local orphanage. Not just that, but the students spent the afternoon playing with the orphans and everyone clearly gained much from the experience!
