At Metropolitan we believe in guiding our students to make a difference from an early age.
We know that by developing an awareness of the issues that different communities are facing, both locally and globally, we will increase our students’ ability to see the world from an alternative perspective, developing their life skills whilst improving outcomes for those communities.
Guided by the Prosperity Index students will work in groups across six core areas to design projects and initiatives which positively impact the prosperity of local and global communities.
Education: Quality and Equality of education matter for democracy. Our students will work to support children who have difficulty accessing basic education, providing them with books and other education resources.
Healthcare and Environment: There is a proven link between health and economic growth. Students will work with local hospitals to understand the essentials of health. They will also gain an awareness of their carbon footprint and the benefits of recycling to build a sustainable environment.
Social Capital: Countries that have strong familial bonds, charitable intent and high levels of trust are also the wealthiest. Students will volunteer with local charities and develop an understanding of other cultures.
Economy: More prosperous societies promote better and more equal access to opportunity. MetBiz will immerse our students in the world of entrepreneurship, encouraging them to think laterally to create new solutions.
Effective Citizenship: Economic freedom can help stimulate demands for other personal freedoms. Students will work on initiatives to develop an understanding of their roles and responsibilities within their local community and beyond.
Safety Awareness: Our programs will cover internet and home safety and road safety, increasing awareness both inside and outside the school.
Orphans’ Day Celebration: Orphans’ Day is a national celebration in Egypt that falls on the first Friday of April and has been an annual event ever since it was first inaugurated 11 years ago.
On this occasion, the MET Team decided to take part in this celebration at one of the secondary schools in Giza, which provides support and sponsors 150 orphans from its student body. We as a team, purchased gifts to reward each of the 150 students for their continuous effort and progress they are showing at their school.
At Metropolitan School, we know that by developing an awareness of the issues that different communities are facing, both locally and globally, we will increase our students’ ability to see the world from an alternative perspective, developing their life skills while improving outcomes for those communities. Therefore, we will offer our students the opportunity to become involved in community service projects while making a difference to the lives of people who are less fortunate than themselves.
