“Terry Fox was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was an active teenager who was involved in many sports. Terry was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) and forced to have his right leg amputated 15 centimetres (six inches) above the knee in 1977.While in hospital, Terry was so overcome by the suffering of other cancer patients, many of them young children, that he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. Terry passed away on June 28, 1981 at the age 22.He would call his journey the Marathon of Hope.”

No SAT1/SAT2 Required From Canadian Graduates In Egypt
Heritage is glad to announce that we have received an official letter from the Ministry of Higher Education with news that we have been anticipating for some time. The letter states that students who are graduating from Canadian schools in Egypt, and have not written the SAT1 & SAT2 exams can now apply to private universities in Egypt effectively from Academic Year 2014-2015.No SAT1/SAT2 Required From Canadian Graduates In Egypt
As all parents know, the Canadian High School Diploma is highly recognized worldwide as one of the top respected Diplomas. As such, we need not have students striving for the International Baccalaureate (IB) since not having to write SAT’s shows the quality of our Canadian Manitoba High School Diploma. The SAT1 & SAT2 should have never been forced/implemented on Canadian graduates from the beginning. However, due to some political/influential circumstances, it was forced on our students. With the new educated government officials at the Ministry of Higher Education, the SAT1 & SAT2 have been waivered from the Canadian graduates. Which means that Heritage students are not requested to write the SAT1 & SAT2 exams.
The school campus is designed and built according to the highest international standards with a land area of 20.000 square meters. It comprises of 4 classes at each grade level, adding up to approximately 56 classrooms. The classroom is designed to receive 25 students, according to international standards.
Heritage International School is going under continuous development. The main building that comprises the Kindergarten to grade 9 classes is considered to be phase 1 of construction.
Phase 2 is being built at the moment and will comprise the school’s indoor theater and extra classrooms expected to be used in Academic Year 2019-2020
Phase 3 will comprise the swimming pool.
Our staff will take you on a tour to see the school’s
