Nibras International School recognized for contributions to Al Jalila Foundation’s cancer awareness campaign

Dubai (UAE), December 7: Nibras International School (NIS), located in Dubai Investment Park, has been recognized by the Al Jalila Foundation as one of its key supporters of the Pink October Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.

The Nibras International School, part of International Schools Partnership (ISP), took part in the Pink October campaign by organizing a three-day event for its community which included a pink market, a pink salon, a photo booth station, a games area, and an arts and crafts section.

Parents, students, and school staff took part in these activities and raised nearly AED 12,170 for the Al Jalila Foundation, a charitable organization dedicated to promoting medical research, education and treatment in the UAE.

“We are incredibly proud of the collective hard work of the Nibras International School Community. It has paved the way for such a wonderful achievement. We love seeing our students participate in and enthusiastically organize an event that raises awareness and educates everyone about such an important issue,” said Dr. Jay Teston, Principal of Nibras International School.

Students from the school visited the Al Jalila Foundation to present a cheque, and to witness their school’s name being engraved on a wall at the center.

Individuals who were involved in the process expressed their delight at the event’s success. “It’s a nice experience, and I am glad we were all able to contribute to such a worthwhile cause” said Basel K, a High School Student Council Member at Nibras International School.

The High School Student Council, under the supervision of Ms. Amena Saleem, the School Counselor and High School Student Council Advisor, and Ms. Riham Ali, the school’s secondary librarian and a survivor herself, organised the events during the awareness campaign.

Ms. Amena said: “It was important to bring our students to the Al Jalila Foundation, as it is a great way for them to understand how their hard work and planning has made an impact.”
