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.
Movember is here!
Heritage is dedicating the month of November to create awareness of Men’s health especially Prostate cancer, Testicular cancer, Poor mental health, and Physical inactivity.
To collaborate with our Terry Fox initiative and continue our proud tradition of raising money for cancer research, our school will be raising funds through out November for the popular charity effort Movember.
Our goal this year will be to raise 20,000 LE for donation to the local cancer hospital.
To achieve these goals, students from Grade 7 – 12 can:
- Donate money to Ms. Mona El Sanhoury (Activities Co-ordinator).
- 50 LE – they will receive a Movember pin (black or pink).
- 20 LE – they will receive a Movember sticker (black or pink)
- Of course, students can also donate any larger or smaller amount as they wish.
- For students in elementary school, we will be selling the following items at lunch for Grades 1-6.
- Movember pins- black and pink- 50 L.E.
- Movember stickers- black and pink- 20 L.E.
- Stick-on moustaches- black- 10 L.E.
- Movember bracelets- 35 L.E.
If you choose to allow your son or daughter to contribute to this effort, you can send them with any amount of money you would like and they can obtain these items during their lunch break and recess. If you would just like to donate in general, please send your donation in a sealed and labelled envelope with your son or daughter, the class teacher will then ensure it reaches Ms. Mona El Sanhoury.
We will also have our annual hair shaving ceremony, and this year it will be over 2 days.
We have two students who have agreed to volunteer for this, as well as our P.E. teacher Mr. Matthew.
The head shaving will take place on Dec. 2 and 3 at the school
** Kindly note this is a student-only event.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to ask Ms. Mona.
Terry Fox Run 2020
We thank you all for your support during this academic year. The Terry Fox Committee is kicking off our first event of the year with our Annual Terry Fox Run. This year the run is scheduled over many days due to taking (Covid-19) precautions. The schedule for the run times is attached, however this year we are only running with the students at the school. We hope to be able to invite parents to participate with us again next year.
“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 28th, 1981 at the age 22. He would call his journey the Marathon of Hope.”
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.
Kindly insert your donations in a sealed envelope with your child’s name, class and house on it and send them to your child’s homeroom teacher. (Donations will be collected until 15th of December 2020.)
Please insure that your child wears a hat and brings a bottle of water.
Parents will not be attending this year due to health regulations for the (Covid-19) pandemic.

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
