A well-equipped clinic is available in the Administration Building to provide health care for our children throughout the school day.
Students with injuries or illnesses may go and be seen by our nurses or the school doctor, and be provided with appropriate medication and/or treatment.
We also do regular health checks, particularly for the younger children in the Primary and Early Years age. The clinic also keeps
a medical file on each child and checks on absences. The school nurse notifies the parents of a child if more serious treatment is needed.
One of our facilities supporting our staff, is a day care center open for the young children (age 0-3). This day care center enables our working mothers to get back to work quickly after having their baby, as it is properly equipped with toys, caretakers and cots for the children to sleep in. This center is not open to the public.
The school has its own engineering and maintenance department and we do almost all of our own maintenance and repairs, as well as keeping everything in order. We have a group of skilled workmen who also provide some support to our Art department in making large scaled projects.
The school has a large and very well stocked resource department as well as departmental resource rooms attached to each classroom. The materials and equipment available to teachers are all catalogued and bar coded using the Oliver library software program and this unique facility is run by full time personnel who also support the teachers with photocopying, lamination and classroom stationary needs. This enables us to continuously provide fun, interactive style classes for our primary students.
ICT Support Services
Four full time ICT System Engineers and four full time ICT technicians (MCSE qualified) look after our extensive computer networks as well as an educational ICT coordinator. Our ICT Development Coordinator provides vision and leadership for the development of ICT, E-learning, and Management ICT Systems across the school and day-to-day ICT Operations, securing high quality and the effective use of resources to bring about the highest standards of achievement for students and staff.
The School offers a broad curriculum in PE with a wide range of different sports and activities and has a variety of areas to use: grass and artificial fields, hard surfaces and acrylic. Students are also encouraged to take part in the school teams, As part of our physical education system, we also provide a multitude of extra-curricular school sports teams that your children can join and thrive in, creating friendships and good memories as well as learning about sportsmanship and teamwork skills. Our winning record is impressive, even in newly-introduced sports such as Rugby.
El Alsson NewGiza will also have a Sports Hall featuring Basketball courts, two indoor heated pools and a fitness gym and dance studio (underway)
The school runs 80+ buses all over Cairo, to and from school, enabling our students access to our school and safe transportation every day. The buses take your children from home directly, on a set schedule, providing efficiency and safety for younger children. All the buses are air-conditioned and most of them are 26 seater Coasters enabling them to reasonably get through the traffic. Every bus has a bus matron who stays with the children for the whole journey, maintaining the behavior and safety of the children.
