El Alsson School Turns 40!!!

September – 2021

El Alsson School is proud to turn 40 years this academic year.  El Alsson began by teaching the Egyptian National Curriculum from 1982 until 1992, then in response to numerous requests by parents for an alternative style of education to the Ministry’s National programme, the ‘English Academy International’ as it was called at the time was opened offering the British curriculum leading to IGCSE, AS and A-Level.

In 2002, El Alsson International School was approved as a centre for Edexcel GCSE, A/S and A-Level programmes as an alternative to the examination-based, cramming-style IGCSE system. For all of our students, El Alsson has been able to provide an interesting and demanding curriculum with a wide range of subjects available, taught by experienced UK teachers. In 2006 the American Section was introduced and a year later, accredited. We then became El Alsson British and American International School.

In 2017 El Alsson Haraneya moved to New Giza becoming El Alsson British and American International Schools – New Giza. We moved to a new state of the art campus built over 14 fedaans in one of the most prestigious communities in Cairo.

Looking back at the past 40 years we are proud of what El Alsson has achieved in the field of education, proud that it has always tried to be ahead of the game in embracing new educational developments and trends, and proud that it has strived to graduate citizens who are well equipped to succeed in the international market. We are extremely proud of all our alumni body, many of whom have exceeded in all walks of life.

We are ever so grateful to all the parents, students, teachers, administrators, matrons, workers, bus drivers, gardeners and stakeholders who were part of this journey and made it with us so far. We couldn’t have done it without any of you.

Thank you and Happy 40th anniversary to El Alsson Community.

Bus Parents Communication 6.9.21

Dear Parents,

As the start of the school year draws near, we wanted to provide you with some bus transport information as your child is registered to use a school bus.

Please be advised of the following points:

Late Buses for EC/EY Students: We are unable to allow students on the 1:35 EC/EY buses to travel home on 2:35 buses with older siblings. Excepts are made only in the case where we do not provide a 1:35 bus service to the child’s location. It is the parents’ responsibility to make arrangements for 1:35 bus students to be received at their bus stop in the afternoon.

Bus Changes: Bus changes are not permitted except in the case of significant emergency, and at the discretion of the Operations Manager. Please note that doctors appointments or desire for a child to go to visit with relatives or friends, amongst other things, are not considered to be emergencies.

Bus Changes for Club Training: Bus changes for students who attend sports club training may be approved upon a request to the Operations Manager and receipt of an official letter from the club. Please note that such requests will be approved on a first-come first-serve basis and only be approved if there is sufficient space on the bus required. Any approved changes for club training will only take effect beginning October 3rd. Parents are advised to submit their requests as soon as possible for processing.

Address Changes: Any parent whose child has changed address since last year, or who plans to change address within the academic year, is advised to alert the Operations Manager before the first day of school.

Bus App: Please note that all the bus info is available on the school’s bus app.

Prior to the start of school, we kindly ask that you discuss our bus rules with your child. Further school-wide communications will also provide reminders as to bus health and safety processes.

Kind Regards,

Ahmed Mattar

Operations Manager
