El Alsson School – NewGiza




Alsson El Kheir

Dear Parents,

El Alsson British and American International School in New Giza would like to announce the Alsson Kheir initiative.

We are always very impressed with the generosity and care that our families demonstrate during Ramadan. This is a tradition we would like to continue and develop. Last year we gave out 300 boxes and prepared Iftar for 150 orphans.

As a school, we believe not only that charity and community service begins at home, but also that children benefit from giving of their time and efforts.

With Ramadan approaching, we invite students to make voluntary donations to support Alsson ElKheir this Ramadan. Funds collected will be used to support activities that students will participate in including:

packing and distributing whole-sale dry goods to create Ramadan bags to support our school-sponsored families, orphanages as well as support staff.
sponsoring an iftarfor children in need who we support as a school community
providing additional material needs to local orphanages and families in need as we are able
Children of all ages, across the schools, will have the opportunity to work together to organize, pack and distribute items, while also learning the importance of teamwork and the spirit of giving. Students will be guided and supported in this process through our teachers and leadership teams.

A donation of 200 LE or more if you wish will allow us to make other families happy.

Please send your donations to the class teacher / homeroom / or relevant office in a sealed and labelled envelope by the 21st of March. The sooner your contribution is received, the faster we proceed.

Wishing you all a Ramadan Kareem.

MOMO awareness information

Dear Parents

Below is an awareness information insert about the MOMO Challenge knowing how disturbing and scary this is for students and parents especially when appearing on supposedly safe mediums like YouTube Kids. We have researched this and we highly recommend students to only use and not any other engine as MOMO popups come on all others. Kindle is a safe engine and has several filters.
