At Heritage International School, we will be dedicated to providing a quality Canadian education program and services in order to help our students attain their full potential academically, socially and physically, as well as provide them with the knowledge and skills required for them to be valued and contributing members of our society.
The school’s mission is to develop a child-centered system of education that allows students to become independent thinkers in their own right.
Heritage International School will ensure your children’s superiority not only in education, but also in building their independent and creative characters.
We hope that you all have had a safe and relaxing summer. The Terry Fox Committee is kicking off the year with our Annual Terry Fox Run on Thursday, September 26th, 2019.
For the Terry Fox Run this year, the students will be taken outside to do laps around the track, they can choose to run or walk. There will be 2 goals for this event. We are asking that the students bring in donations. All donations will be given to the Children’s Cancer Hospital in Egypt (57357). We hope to raise over 20,000 L.E. once again, let’s achieve this goal together.
- Goal #1: We will be calculating which house completed the most laps as a group.
- Goal #2: Teachers will calculate which house raised the most money as a group
“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 centimeters (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 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. 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.
