The students visited a miniature replica of Luxor Abu Simble Temple. Metropolitan’s trip to the Pharaonic Village was an engaging experience that introduced our students to Egypt’s great history.
Trip to Al-Forqan Orphanage
In our continued effort to be good citizens, Metropolitan School visited Al-Forqan Orphanage in Nasr City. Our recent ‘Clothing Drive’ generated many items for donation which the children were happy to distribute to the young residents. Grade 1 Navy raised money from their Valentine’s Candy Gram project which was used to buy back-packs. The orphanage said they were in much need of essential cleaning products and items of food. The funds raised at the ‘Winter Wonderland’ show, originally planned for the purchase of winter blankets, were used to provide what they needed.

We all enjoyed a day together at Monzoo feeding the different animals and learning about where they may live in the wild. We saw a giant tortoise, ostriches, monkeys and many beautiful birds. Students also explored how to care for pets and the differences between pets and wild animals. After the trip students were asked to share zoo animal stories! It was a fun and joyful day for everyone!
