Monday, January 23, 2023
The British International School of Casablanca welcomed today the British Ambassador in Morocco, Mr. Simon MARTIN, for the concretization of the partnership between BISC and the British Embassy through the Chevening scholarship programme.
The Chevening programme is an international scholarship programme funded by the British government and its partners, including the British International School of Casablanca, to support individuals with strong academic credentials and leadership potential. Chevening scholarships are designed to offer scholars the opportunity to pursue a one-year Masters degree in any field of study at an accredited university in the UK, as well as to join an influential global network of over 50,000 alumni in more than 160 countries and territories around the world.
The objective of the Chevening programme is to select and support students who have the greatest potential to become leaders and decision-makers in their own countries, by providing them with a UK living and study experience that will help them develop their skills both professionally and personally. The Chevening programme is considered the most prestigious scholarship programme of its kind in the world.
Mr. Simon Martin, accompanied by the President of the British International School of Casablanca, Mr. BOUBKER EL FEHDI, visited the classrooms and the various prestigious facilities of the school, which covers an area of 5 Hectares, and which offers an education based on excellence, rigour and the fulfilment of its students.
The British Ambassador to Morocco, Mr. Simon Martin, was particularly proud of the excellent standard of the school's students, and also highlighted the cultural diversity of the school, with students coming from many different countries, with over 40 nationalities represented at BISC, and experienced teachers from a variety of backgrounds, over 95% of whom are English.
BISC is renowned for its academic excellence where students benefit from a high quality international education, with a particular emphasis on English language teaching, and an experiential pedagogy through the Cambridge Curriculum. It also offers a variety of extra-curricular programmes such as sports activities, clubs and volunteer opportunities for students to promote values such as equality, sharing and self-acceptance.
As for Mr. Boubker EL FEHDI, carrying the torch of commitment to Morocco and its youth, initiated by Mr. AHMED EL FEHDI, President of H&A INVESTMENT HOLDING, of which BISC is one of its subsidiaries, said: "The EL FEHDI family has always supported noble causes and will not hesitate at any time to make young Moroccans' image shine in the world. Through this initiative, we will allow several young Moroccans to realise their dream of studying a Master's degree at the university of their choice in the UK free of charge, thus enabling them to develop their professional and personal skills and leadership. We have also put in place a scholarship of excellence which amounts to over 3 million dirhams for the education of high achieving students from several schools in Morocco.
A cheque of 59,400 pounds, the equivalent of 750,000 Moroccan Dirhams, was delivered by Mr. Boubker EL FEHDI to the British Ambassador to Morocco, who expressed his gratitude for the commitment and dedication of the EL FEHDI family and the British International School of Casablanca.Share this page
