T minus one day and counting… Tomorrow our Juniors board a plane to the land of the Vikings.
It’s that exciting time of the year for the NIS Cairo-Copenhagen eleventh graders at both First Settlement and Sherouk campuses. Every year, the school sends its students to Copenhagen, Denmark to spend time with their counterparts; its an educational experience that allows them to expand their horizons and exchange knowledge and views.
This year, the seventh generation of this class will be traveling on the 1st of April; therefore, it was time to prepare. The Danish families might ask about Egypt, whether asking about the pyramids or who’s in charge of tourism, there’s a sea of questions to be asked and the students should be prepared to respond to the best of their abilities.
Preparations began with Dr. Mohamed Abdel Latif, NIS CEO, and Mr. Khaled Kamel, Operations Director, meeting with the CC students and informing them how to adequately and diplomatically respond to questions concerning world issues and politics. The session took place in the form of an open discussion where students voiced their opinions and concerns while Abdel Latif and Kamel listened and meticulously explained the issues at hand. Rather than informing the students, they took on a different approach; they geared the discussion in a way that triggered the interest and curiosity of everyone in attendance.
Soon after, the school arranged several excursions to refresh the students’ knowledge on Egyptian history and its importance. Trips to the Gamal Abdel Nasser Museum, Egyptian Museum and the Giza Pyramids took place uniting students from both the Sherouk and First Settlement campuses. In a few weeks time, NIS will proudly send out students filled with Egyptian pride and ready to answer any questions.
