Service Projects

ICS has its own Service initiatives including:

  • a relationship with the Shree Mangal Dvip School (SMD) in Kathmandu, Nepal, which gives an education to children who would not otherwise receive one. (Schooling is not compulsory in Nepal, and schools for children living in the Himalayas are few and far between.) ICS students and staff have been to SMD to volunteer there, and we offer scholarships to students from SMD so they can study for the IB Diploma here. Following the Nepal earthquake of April 2015, which damaged school buildings, we have set up a fund to channel donations to the school.
  • a relationship with the Second Chance Education Centre in Moshi, Tanzania. Again, this is a school offering the chance of an education to children who might otherwise miss out. Staff and students volunteer there and ICS also supports a Teacher Training Workshop for Tanzanian teachers there every January.
  • The Arogya Agam clinic in India for HIV-positive children. The link between ICS and Arogya Agam stretches back to the 1970s.

We are also a member of the Round Square organisation. This is a global community of schools whose students are working hard to make a difference in the lives of others, while also learning more about themselves. Read more here about the opportunities we can offer our students thanks to our membership of Round Square.

Round Square 

 

 

 

 

These Grade 10 & 11 students raised money last year for the Round Square's Prince Alexander Project Fund. All 90 international Round Square schools contribute to this fund which helps projects including building classrooms in a Primary school in Kenya, a school building programme in Cambodia, and a water project in Thailand.  Read more here about initiatives ICS students can get involved in thanks to our membership of Round Square.

Reading for Nepal

 

 

 

 

 

The whole school took part in a sponsored Readathon for charity Room to Read in November 2012. One of our students, Amanda, herself a very keen reader, raised over 6,000 CHF to help effort to fund, build and fill with books a library in Nepal.
