Celebrating the very best of British Education

The pomp and ceremony of a British Embassy event is always a privilege to experience.  Even more so when the reason for the occasion is to celebrate the outstanding achievements of students in their Cambridge International Examinations.  Mr Kirby, Mrs Singleton and Mrs Clingan, along with proud parents of award recipients, had the pleasure to attend the British Council Award Ceremony for CIE Exam High Achievers on Tuesday 10 March 2015.  The auspicious event was hosted by the British Embassy at the palatial residence of his excellency, Mr John Casson HMA, British Ambassador to Egypt.  Pertinent addresses were delivered by the Ambassador himself, as well as Mr Mark Stephens, Director of the British Council Egypt.  The Chief Executive of Cambridge International Examinations, Mr Michael O’Sullivan, timed his visit to Cairo to coincide with the occasion and to personally congratulate the students being recognised; his words of wisdom were particularly inspirational.

His excellency, Mr Casson, Mr Stephens and Mr O’Sullivan all spoke of Egypt’s bright future in the hands of the young men and women who were being recognized as top achievers in their CIE exams, as well as the internationally reputed rigor and standard of a British education.  Parents were commended for guiding students to their success by opting for such a robust curriculum.  Schools were applauded for ensuring excellent pedagogical standards and support of their students.  Mr Stephens acknowledged that students achieving outstanding results reflected their own capabilities alongside the evident quality of their school.  With that said, it was with enormous pride that we then applauded the efforts of award winners as they crossed the stage to collect their certificates and medallions.

 

As in previous years, Modern English School Cairo stood out amongst the schools represented not only because of the sheer number of awards won by our students, but because of the auspicious categories in which they earned accolade.  To perform top in a subject, nationally or globally, is no mean feat; it is a tremendous accomplishment to know that you did better than anyone else.  MES Cairo students were recognized for outstanding achievement in the following categories:
