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.
