International Schools – Community Cohesion

As you all know schools enjoy being at the heart of the community linking generations and often driving community cohesion activities… International Schools also share this core value… today I met Mr Nick Kendell, Head of Primary at the New Cairo British International School http://www.ncbis.org/index.htm (NCBIS) Egypt, Mr Kendell shared with me an amazing story of how NCBIS teachers, parents and pupils engaged with the local community to celebrate cultural diversity and the school’s 30th anniversary.

Over 1,200 members of the school community formed a Circle of Peace at the Giza Pyramids making for an extraordinary day marking a special occasion for the school the local area and the region as a whole…

The event was covered by CNN, check it out on You Tube… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbmYW81v-9k

NCBIS proudly enjoys the reputation of being one of the best international schools in Egypt…
