Message from the Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the International School Benghazi.
It is with great honour and pride that I welcome you to this prestigious school. We provide a full, challenging, interesting and enjoyable learning experience while assisting each student to reach their full potential.
We are located in the wonderful community of Bengahzi where staff, parents and the community work together as a team to meet the specific needs of our students and school. We endeavour to offer educational opportunities within a safe and nurturing environment. It is our aim to provide our students with an education which will help them to develop spiritually, morally, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially. We are always reaching higher, whether it is in academics, athletics or community service.
We are proud of the staff at our school and trust that you will appreciate the professionalism, enthusiasm and dedication that we offer as we co-operate with you, the parents and guardians, in providing the best possible education for our students. A school is just a building. What makes it special are the people inside; working together, celebrating together, helping each other and building a wonderful school community. The GEMS Core Values of World Citizenship, Universal Values, Leadership and Forward Thinking, encourage independent learning and responsibility. Students learn to celebrate diversity in a spirit of understanding and tolerance, and develop a positive regard and awareness of other people.
The GEMS network provides a wealth of experience and the opportunity for children, staff and parents to connect with their peers in a real “world school”.
Communication between home and school is very important. Please call or write a note to make an appointment with your child's teacher to discuss any questions or concerns.
I look forward to meeting everyone in our school community and to working together for the benefit of our children.
Peter Hodge MSc., MBA, DipHE, BEd, FRSA
