Nibras International School honored for continued support to the Al Jalila Foundation’s Cancer Awareness campaign

Nibras International School (NIS), part of International Schools Partnership (ISP), has been recognized for the second time by the Al Jalila Foundation as a key supporter of the Pink October Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. 

Parents, students, and school staff actively participated in the wide range of activities and raised over AED 19,000 to support the Al Jalila Foundation’s breast cancer program focused on driving awareness, education, medical research, and treatment.

The school, located in Dubai Investment Park, hosted a two-day Pink October event which included a pink market, a pink salon, a photo booth station, and a games area. The High School Student Council representatives and NIS Senior Students ensured that parents could also attend the Pink Market by organizing it during the two-day Parent Teacher Conferences, while the Elementary Student Council championed ‘A Dirham for A Cause’ in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.

Expressing her happiness on the success of the Pink October campaign, Amena Saleem, the School Counselor and High School Student Council Advisor, said: “At Nibras International School, we take pride in our commitment to social responsibility and community service. Our students showed great eagerness to contribute to the betterment of their communities and aimed to surpass ast year’s donations. The dedication and enthusiasm of the students have led to a significant increase in funds raised this year.”  

In recognition of their efforts and commitment to the noble cause, representatives from the school’s student council groups and NIS Senior students were invited by Al Jalila Foundation to their center. The students presented a cheque and witnessed the engraving of the school’s name on the wall for a second consecutive year.

The visit to the Al Jalila Foundation was an opportunity for the students to learn about the importance of supporting worthwhile causes and its role in fostering values of social responsibility and empathy.

“Visiting the Al Jalila Foundation was a fruitful and meaningful experience. We learnt about the foundation’s initiatives in advancing healthcare, supporting cancer and disease research, funding treatments, and creating recreational spaces for patients. By witnessing firsthand where the donations are directed, we gained a deeper understanding of the positive impact we are making and how each one of us can contribute to the overall well-being of individuals and communities,” Esha V, a Grade 12 student shared.

“By helping communities affected by cancer, our Student Councils are not only raising awareness but also playing a crucial role in creating a supportive and compassionate environment. It is inspiring to witness young individuals channeling their energy and enthusiasm towards making a positive impact on the lives of others, and it aligns with the NIS TORCH values of tolerance, organization, respect, care and honesty, that we instill in every student,” said Dr. Jay Teston, Principal of Nibras International School.
