El Alsson Parent Council
As we are approaching the end of the first term, we are delighted to announce the re-launch of a key initiative within our school community which will ensure that parent involvement can continue to grow in all areas of life at El Alsson. It is very important for the development of the children to see their parents involved in their school and helping with different activities that increase their enrichment and provide them with an incredible experience at El Alsson.
We are excited to reintroduce the El Alsson Parent Council, which will continue to be defined and grow to serve the primary purpose of increasing the enrichment of the El Alsson students through different programs, events, and activities outside their classroom time. The key ingredient to the success of the Parent Council is volunteers. We are very lucky that our school community is one that prides itself with having close ties to one another, making it that much easier to work together to make it an even more positive experience for our children.
It is important to note that the success of the Parent Council will be determined by how we, as a school community, adhere to the purpose of the Council as well as increasing the overall volunteerism culture within the parent community. There will also be teacher and administration involvement in the Council in order to increase the communication between the parents and the staff.
The El Alsson Parent Council will be rolled out gradually with some activity taking place this school year, and we aim to be fully functional with a wide variety of committees and activities by the beginning of the 2023-24 academic year. Additional information will be available at our first meeting.
We would like to invite you to an information session to be held in the American School Small Hall on Wednesday, November 9th at 9:00am.
We are really looking forward to an amazing experience and to have a strong and successful Parent Council to serve the entire El Alsson community. We hope to see as many interested parents at our information session on Wednesday!

Winter Clothes Drive
Over the past couple of years we have been running the Winter Clothes Drive which has been hugely successful and greatly appreciated by our matrons and workers. We were overwhelmed with the incredible level of generosity in your donations and we wish to continue this initiative. Our students thoroughly enjoyed volunteering their time and effort to give back to their community and it was a significant learning experience for them to further develop their sense of social responsibility.
As of Sunday the 6th of November, we will start collecting clothes donations. We kindly ask that you ensure the donations you make are in good condition without any stains, rips, broken zippers, etc. Please drop off your donations to your child’s designated administrative office (EC/ES American Office, MHS American Office, Primary British Office, Secondary British Office).
The clothes distribution will be held on Thursday the 8th of December.
This is a school-wide project where staff and students will be collaborating together from both the British and American School. We would like to invite parents who are interested in volunteering to support to sign up HERE to specify your availability.
We look forward to another successful Winter Clothes Drive!

El Alsson School
Arabic Exam Schedules
El Alsson British and American International School in New Giza would like to announce the Alsson Kheir initiative 2022.
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 350 boxes and prepared Iftar for 150 orphans. We are looking forward to giving out more boxes this year.
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 boxes 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 300 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 20th of February. The sooner your contribution is received, the faster we proceed.
Wishing you all a Ramadan Kareem.
