Windrose Academy says NO to Bullying!!

Oct 25,2022

Bullying is a worldwide Pandemic that affects Egyptian school students on a daily basis.  It is defined as violence towards another person and can take place in many forms; physical, verbal, or through the internet (Cyberbullying).  This serious problem can affect students of any age negatively e.g. poor school achievement and mental health problems.  According to UNICEF Egypt statistics, 70% of students between the ages of 13 – 15 are bullied in schools.  In order to spread awareness about the topic Windrose Academy had an Anti-Bullying Campaign during the week commencing 18th October 2022.   The week encouraged students to talk about bullying and express themselves in many forms, art, music, drama, and videos.

6th of October in-house Celebration

Oct 12,2022

Windrose Academy understands the importance of celebrating our country’s victories and keeping the memory alive for younger generations. To ensure that it’s part of their character-building process, our school celebrated ‘Belonging Week last week.’   The week was an excellent opportunity to encourage our students to embed within themselves a sense of pride and belonging to their great country, Egypt. Many activities were arranged in All the classes and throughout the Key stages, allowing students to express their feelings through Art, Writing, and Drama in Arabic, English, French, and German.  The festivities culminated with patriotic songs, dances, and drama to inform our students about our victory in the 6th October War and keep the memory alive in the minds of youngsters who cannot associate themselves with the occasion.  The day ended with an ex-army officer giving a motivational speech to our year 8 students about the meaning of Freedom, pride, and achievement.  It was indeed a memorable and wonderful day.

6th of October Celebration

Oct 11,2021

Our previous week was full of excitement and patriotism. Our lovely students prepared themselves for the celebration of the 6th of October Victory. Songs were sung and performances were heart-warming. The students rolled up their sleeves and made battle plans, as well as a lovely art gallery expressing their viewpoints on the historical battle.

Please be sure your child is wearing a mask upon entering school and has extras available in case of lost, misplaced, or dropped the mask. This helps us to maintain our level of safety for all. We appreciate the home-school partnership in supporting our protocols.

Stay tuned for more news and fun at Windrose Academy.
