ICS Safety and Health Blog

Just a reminder that we have a blog for safety and health issues in Addis and around the country. Any security or health information we get from our sources, we post on this blog for the use of our faculty, staff and parents.

We update the blog with the latest information or as events happen. Therefore, there may be a long time between posts.

INTERNATIONAL DAY

Another year has come around to celebrate the growing diversity at ICS! Last year we had over 60+ nationalities and almost 2000 members of the ICS community (and friends of ICS constituents) attend. This year we have over 75+ nationalities so we expect a bigger crowd to recognize and celebrate our multicultural heritage by attending our annual International Day!

When: Saturday 8 October

Where: Main soccer field

Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

All members of the ICS community are welcome to attend this event and invite their family members / friends. All parents and students must bring their ICS IDs. Guests must be accompanied by a community member (student, parent or staff) and be carrying an ID (passport, driving license, local ID or any other type of official identification).

***We encourage everyone to come in national dress or colors to showcase our diverse community!***

Call out for Parent Volunteers!

International Day has always been a community-driven effort of bringing together the required knowledge and resources for organizing such a complex but very rewarding event. It is also a great opportunity for new parents to network and meet the community. Last year's International Day was a success due to our parent volunteers who helped the Advancement Department organize the many tasks necessary for running the event.

This is a great event to get involved with and meet new people. If you are interested to lend a hand this year and please sign up at the main reception in the Admin building.
