On Wednesday 13th December from 3.30pm – 8pm, the British Secondary School will be holding the first Key Stage 3 Parents’ Evening. This is a great opportunity to discuss your child’s KS3 report which will be issued the week beginning 10th December.
Students will receive appointment sheets from Monday. Please liaise with them the best time to meet with their teachers.
We look forward to meeting with you at our new campus in New Giza.
The British Student Council nominations are now complete and the first two meetings have taken place. Each tutor group has two representatives who belong to one of the following committees:
- Student support (to include anti-bullying)
Each committee is led by a sixth form student and are overseen by the Heads and Deputies. So far the council has helped to organize fundraising events, a recycling project, teacher articles for the website and clothing collections. They are a very proactive group of young people who are sure to make their mark this year and I look forward to working with them.
Good luck Student Council!

As you may have noticed Winter is fast approaching and the weather is getting cold. The British and American Senior/Secondary schools will be running a charity drive over the next two weeks collecting blankets, shoes, socks and any other warm clothing to give to people in need. If you have anything to donate please send it in to school over the next two weeks and ask your child to put it into the boxes beside the flagpole. The section that donates the most will win a prize (American or British)!
El Alsson U16 Rugby v BISC
On Thursday 25 October 2017 El Alsson’s Under 16’s took the spoils in the friendly fixture with a 17-15 win over BISC. Karim Agwa scored a truly amazing try all the way back from the 22m line. As it was the first time to see the boys in action it would be unfair to single out a single player so the whole team deserved a mention for their excellent play.
El Alsson U19 Rugby v BISC
People have plenty to say about modern rugby, not all of it complimentary. Thrilling gladiatorial finishes like this one, though, are impossible to resist and El Alsson’s last-gasp heist at the BISC stronghold will rumble around the West Cairo for some time.
It was not a result carved entirely out of imbuia wood. The team did the simple basics well and led by their spirited captain Hesham Atef, who scored all three tries deserved the cheers from his teammates. A special mention to Hussein Hafez who stopped a sure try with a great tackle thus ensuring victory with 15-10 over British International School. I would like to thank the supporters and their chaperones, Mrs Enas SalahEl Din, Mr Bryan Lee and Mrs Sue Ellen Lee. The support was amazing.
The Rugby programme consists of U14-U15 boys, U16 and U19 boys and we’ll start with an Open Girls squad to take up this incredible game. The values of discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship and respect will be at the front of the El Alsson rugby programme.
AMERICAN MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOL PARENTS’ DAY
Tuesday November 21st
Parents’ Day for the American Middle and High School is on Tuesday, November 21st. We very much hope that you will take this opportunity to come and discuss your child’s progress with the teachers and we suggest that your child accompanies you to Parents’ Day. Staff will be available to see you from 8.30 – 11.00 and 11.30 – 2.30.
When you arrive, please be sure to first register with our Senior Students at the Information Desk in the main outside plaza (in front of the Staff Room). They will give you information on teacher’s room locations and a map of the building. Schedule a meeting time by choosing a free time slot on the appointment form that will be found outside each of your child’s classrooms. Please stick to these times to ensure that you get to see each of your child’s teachers and avoid long waiting periods. Check your child’s teacher list on your Sycamore account and/or bring his/her class schedule with you as it will help you to keep track of who you need to see in each of your child’s subject areas.
Please note that as we share a number of staff across both schools, the following teachers will only be available at these times.
Mrs. Nada Greiss From 11:30am to the end of the day
Mr. Scott Snell From 8:30 – 10:45am
Mr Amr Attia From 9:15am – 1:00pm
Mrs. Enas Salah El Din From 9:15am – 1:00pm
Mr. Hanro Van Der Merwe From 9:15am – 12:00pm
In addition to meeting your child’s teachers, there will be a parent information session to update you on the various databases and tools available through the library for all students:
Library Information Session for Parents 11:00 Library
PLEASE ENTER THE SCHOOL FROM GATE 4 WHERE YOU WILL BE DIRECTED TO THE AMERICAN MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL. Tea, coffee and snacks will be available from 8.15 am in the outdoor student café area. We respectfully request that parents do not enter the Staffroom and a reminder that our campus is a non-smoking campus.
We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.
