SABIS® Network Schools in Egypt Get Together for their First Alumni Gathering
On December 5, 2015, the SABIS® Global Alumni Association (SAGA) held their first ever alumni event in Cairo, Egypt, for graduates from the International School of Choueifat – Cairo (ISC-Cairo) and the International School of Choueifat – City of 6 October (ISC-6 October). Excited to reconnect with old classmates and make new friends, 300 people including alumni, their families, teachers, and administrators attended the event.
Held at ISC-Cairo under a theme of “Let’s Get Together," the event included speeches, live music, and lunch. The alumni and family members in attendance reminisced about their time at the schools, reconnected with former teachers, learned about SAGA updates, and rekindled friendships.
“It was a great afternoon that was truly enjoyed and appreciated by all attendees,” said Mr. Salah Ayche, SABIS® Executive Regional Director. “We all relived the past, appreciated the present, and anticipated the future. Alumni spent hours talking about their time at ISC-Cairo and ISC-6 October as well as the impact their experience and education have had on their lives. It certainly was an excellent afternoon with a great turnout.”
By all accounts, the event was a huge success. “The reunion brought back many memories of those great days at school that every single person reminisces about. I was completely honored to be there. I look forward to attending more events like this,” said Rawan Lasheen, an ISC-Cairo alumna.
As the number of graduates from SABIS® Network schools increases, so too are the number of members of SAGA, making the association a valuable platform for networking, socializing, and enjoying the alumni experience. Around the world, SAGA regularly organizes events to connect graduates and widen their social and professional circles.
