Our activities for the year 2018-2019
For the seventh consecutive year, the Oasis International School organized the Arab League Model 6-7 April 2019. This model, which has gathered 120 students, is still the first in the world organized on the level of schools in Arabic language. During these 2 days, students were divided into 5 committees:
· Summit Council: "Foreign interventions in the internal affairs of the Arab States"
· Council of Arab Foreign Ministers: "The Yemen Crisis"
· Council of Arab Interior Ministers: "Fighting Maritime Crimes"
· Arab Council of Ministers of Justice: "Trafficking in human beings"
· Economic and Social Council: "Free Trade Area in the Arab World"
It also remains to mention that the closing ceremony took place in the building of the Arab League at El Tahrir Square.
TRADE SHOW OF SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES
As part of the interdisciplinary unit, C3 students presented their designs for their ecological compound and sold the different habitats they imagined.
The objective of this event is to allow the child to demonstrate the gained ATL, business, and sustainable design skills they have acquired in Term 2's Design and English's interdisciplinary unit "Eco-friendly compound".
For several years now, Oasis School has given great care and made it a policy to place the TOK at the core of the Diploma Program.
Beyond developing the learner profile qualities, embodying interdisciplinarity and international awareness, the TOK aims to allow each student to develop a personal mentality which is coherent, justified and open to any opposing arguments.
However, in order to bring the students to reflect on their own, the TOK must propose various pedagogical approaches and activities, as well as educational differentiation which allow students to build their own course.
At school, the TOK adds a dimension to the student/teacher relationship as they are solicited to indirectly discuss points of the program, but more generally the details of their discipline and their personal relationship to it.
It also creates emulation at the heart of the pedagogical team of the diploma program, who participates with great interest in the activities proposed by the TOK team.
This team consists of teachers from different disciplines such as mathematics, literature, natural sciences and history, as well as coordinators who ensure the consistency of progression and the optimization of each person’s skills with regard to the fields of knowledge and methodologies.
This organization must allow students to benefit from the same contributions when the entire D1 class holds their TOK at the school theatre, but also to practice other group activities in classrooms, after consulting the teachers’ team.
The verbal test is organized at the end of D1.
Following a few methodological activities, the academic year of D2 mainly consists of an individual follow up of each student with a supervisor to write their essay.
Les Oasissiens ... Our Ambassadors of Education
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Oasis School Group, we have set up our first session of a series entitled "Les Oasissiens ... Our Ambassadors of Education".
Five of our most outstanding graduates, who have completed their university studies and occupy positions in different fields, visited our offices to speak with the MYP and DP students.
They talked about their current works and the path they had to take to get there by focusing on the role of the IB in each of their stories and the advice they wanted to communicate to students.
The session ended with an interactive part where students were able to ask questions.
Following the success of this first experience and the positive dynamic that has occurred between our graduates and our current students, a second session will take place on Tuesday, March 19th. We will keep you informed with more information.

The students of P3 participated in a talent show.
They chose what they liked and expressed their feelings in different forms.
Some danced and sang, others performed magic tricks and gymnastics.

the opening ceremony of the 14th meeting of the United Nations
a group of PYP, MYP and DP students participated in the opening ceremony of the 14th meeting of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity held in Sharm El Sheikh as part of the COP 14.
In front of an audience of more than 4000 people composed of ministers, government officials, environmental experts and representatives of the civil society, from 196 countries. and in the presence of the President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sissi and Dr. Yasmine Fouad, Egyptian Minister of Environment, our students delivered in three languages a strong message on the importance of protecting biodiversity for the future generations.
Their performance, mixing dance, theater and singing was highly appreciated: in order to thank them, Dr. Yasmine Fouad, the Egyptian Minister of Environment invited them on Saturday evening to present them with a Certificate of Appreciation and talk with them.
This experience went well beyond performance. Indeed, this preparation required from all students rigor, will, responsibility and self-control. But that's not all, because for several days, these 31 students who did not necessarily know each other at the beginning since coming from all different levels, worked together.
They have overcome all the difficulties of this preparation, they have been cooperative, they have cared for each other, and they have created a true spirit of mutual aid, encouragement and friendship. In short, a very beautiful adventure, accompanied by Mrs. Rouba Zeidan, theater teacher, Mr. Fouad El Chehab, music teacher and Mrs. Marwa Hamed, dance teacher.
A big thank you to them and all the team behind the preparation of this event and a very big congratulations to our students.
