Primary Assembly A great assembly from Year 3 to round-up their topic studying the ‘Romans’. They demonstrated different battle formations with the shields they had created and even treated us to a musical rendition of ‘Hey Romans!’. Lots of fun for all involved.

Art Exhibition 2017/18 We have seen a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication from our students this year and this is evident in the many diverse and unique pieces of artwork on display in the Art Exhibition this year. The Art Department is flourishing, helped along by the efforts of our first Y10 GCSE Art Class who presented an exciting and inspirational range of final artworks at the exhibition. Well done to all of our students who have worked so hard and made such an effort to contribute to the Art Exhibition 2018, and take time to think about […]
Fagnoon Trip 2017/18 Year 1 and 2 had an amazing experience visiting Fagnoon Farm. Year 1 took part in a farming and pottery activity. Year 2 did woodwork and weaving. All children had the opportunity to learn how to make Baladi bread, to feed goats and to ride on a camel, horse or donkey. A great time was had by all and we returned to school with some very tired students.
On Sunday this week, Year 3 went to Wadi Degla Protectorate to work with the Wadi Degla Environmental Science Centre on a variety activities about rocks and soils. This was a fantastic practical day, which helped to reinforce our Science work in school. The children really enjoyed this educational visit; it was valuable to their learning but also lots of fun!
As part of our “People Who Help Us” topic in the Early Years, students enjoyed a visit from the Cairo Traffic Police. They had a talk on road safety but the highlight of the day for the children had to be when they were let loose to drive mini cars on our blue basketball court which had been transformed into a series of roads, pathways and junctions. The day provided the children with some very valuable life skills on how to stay safe, both as passengers and pedestrians, and their enthusiasm was clear to see.
Well done to all of our swimmers who competed with such determination at the CAC swim meet on the 10th and 11th of November. The MCE Swimming team received 92 medals, keep up the great effort everyone.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will remember them. #RemembranceDay #WeWillRememberThem
