I Love To Read Month
Celebrating ‘I Love to Read’ Month
Did you know that the month of February is a very special month in Canada? Yes, it is the “I Love to Read” month in schools all over Canada, and of course in Manitoba.
As a Canadian School, Heritage International School will also be celebrating February as “I Love to Read” month. During this month the school and the students will celebrate the pleasure of reading in different ways: students will keep track of the amount they read on a classroom thermometer as well as participate in trivia and book cover design contests. The students will also be participating in “Stop, Drop, and Read”. At various times throughout the day students will be told to “Stop, Drop, and Read” emphasizing the students’ love of reading. We are looking forward to seeing more students reading throughout the school!

And hence…. the newspaper is continuing 🙂 This time it’s a smaller team of talented students and Mr. Sheldon. This edition, the theme is about Movember and raising awareness for many important topics. Happy reading everyone!

Graduating From Heritage
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.
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 soon.
Phase 3 will comprise the swimming pool.
Our staff will take you on a tour to see the school’s
facilities and provide you with all the details you need.
Scheduled days: Every Monday and Wednesday starting
December, parents are welcomed to tour our school
