Welcome to the Egypt British International School. I am pleased to welcome you to the Key stage 2 department. It is my absolute pleasure to be the Key Stage head this year. As a department, we are committed to ensuring that every pupil leaves Key Stage 2 with high aspirations, an enduring enthusiasm for learning and the confidence to address the world as independent thinkers.
We teach key skills and knowledge that leads to understanding and develops the confidence to succeed.
We are committed to providing a caring, happy, welcoming environment that meets the needs of each child and ensures that all children have equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum. We set high standards in every area of school life. Learning is stimulating and uses the latest technologies. There are many activities beyond the classroom, to involve your child further in the life of the school.
We develop in children a desire for life-long learning and an understanding of different cultures, traditions and societies and a respect that individual rights and responsibilities are met.
Our learning community is facilitated by a leadership structure which clearly communicates the purpose and direction of the school, and a system of informed continuous professional development. Our professional staff team actively seeks to take up opportunities to further their own knowledge and skills.
We are committed to inclusion, believing that every child has the right to succeed. We take ownership of the responsibility to ensure that any barriers to learning are overcome and that all children experience success.
Our parents and community are key partners and we are committed to working together to sustain a strong sense of community, promote educational achievement, raise children’s self-esteem and a sense of pride in every individual.
Your child’s education is of total importance to me and I will make every effort to set out a wide ranging curriculum that will set them up for success in their later lives. You will be given lots of information to help you be a part of your child’s progress, starting with this handbook. A partnership between us based on excellent communication and collaboration is the foundation of a child’s future success.
I wish your children every success in the coming year.
Head of Key Stage 2
The beginning of a new school year, like the drawing of a new day, reminds us that the future holds infinite possibilities. I know that our students can full fill their full potential because we have an amazing team that believes in the promise of educational excellence. I look forward to a year filled with stories of great success and great learning. We are ready for the exciting task of preparing all students to be successful learners.
(Lina Adel – Head of Year Three)
I am honoured to introduce myself as Head of year 4 as well as a year 4 class teacher. I believe that in order to effectively teach our students, we must know as much about them as possible. Therefore, I feel very fortunate to be leading a strong helpful team, who look forward to getting to know all our students. Each student in our classrooms is an individual with their own beliefs, ideas, and feelings. Our teaching will be tailored to each student’s preferred ways of learning so that they can all achieve to the best of their ability.
(Gehane El Etreby – Head of Year Four)
John Dewey once said ‘Education is not the preparation for life; Education is life itself’. This is what we believe in our team, and this has continuously been the spirit of EBIS. I’ve been honoured to join EBIS in 2013 and being the Head of Year 5, working with our children has always been a privilege. Thinking of ideas every single day to expand their learning experiences by making it more effective and enjoyable has always been and will incessantly be our foremost goal.
(Soha A. Sadek – Head of Year Five)
I am delighted and honoured to introduce myself as the Head of Year6. I joined EBIS nine years ago and for me, EBIS is my second family. I am always supported by a great team of teachers in Key stage two. My role as a head of year 6 is to play an integral part of the students’ future by leaving a lasting imprint on their hearts and in their minds.
As I concentrate on test scores and skill levels, I keep reminding myself of the greatest calling with children: To grace them with potential and promise, for one statement to a child can change the course of a child’s life.
(Marianne Shakour – Head of Year Six)
