Be the Difference that Makes the Difference

Global Paradigm International School's mission is to develop young citizens with active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their beliefs. GPIS offers broad and challenging educational programs that promote regional and global citizenship, and encourage students to be life-long learners who contribute positively to their surrounding community and global environment.

This year GPIS' Student Council has taken on several fundraising projects. The IB Creativity, Activity and Service students, with the Breast Cancer Foundation of Egypt, organized an awareness campaign for students, teachers and parents. The student-led campaign raised L.E. 15,000 ($850) from the community, all of which was donated. Students also participated in an outreach project with a neighborhood public school.

They helped decorate the walls of the school in an effort to make it an inviting and pleasant environment. In Environmental Science, students led a recycling awareness campaign, which included several sessions to teach younger students about the importance of re-cycling and the environment.

 

The Humanities class will run a clothes drive, taking the lead in collecting clothes from the community. The money raised will be donated to a charitable organization. In an initiative by the Student Council, International Tolerance Day featured activities to spread acceptance of differences throughout the whole school. Last but not least, Sociology students ran informative sessions about diabetes on "World Diabetes Day."
