Rare Disease Day is celebrated on the last day of February every year all over the world. The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness about rare diseases and its impact on patients and their families.
In support of the day, on Friday 28th February, 2020 the entire Infant School community came to school wearing blue jeans, a white t-shirt with a touch of pink and had their hands painted with bright colours for a group photo. They later participated in a brief child friendly presentation and discussion on rare diseases.
Led by Dr. Kristine Marbell-Pierre and the Guidance and Counselling team, Ghana International School is joining 15 million students in 28,062 schools and 115 countries in The Great Kindness Challenge!!
It is one week dedicated to creating a culture of kindness and compassion on our campuses. Our school is proudly participating in this proactive and positive kindness initiative from February 10th – 14th.
All students will receive The Great Kindness Challenge checklist. We are also happy to invite you to participate by using the Family Edition. Your family can complete the checklist anytime and anywhere. Please encourage your children to complete as many acts of kindness as possible. Together, let’s show the world that KINDNESS MATTERS.

Congratulations to our newly elected Secondary School Prefects!
The past couple of weeks saw prospective candidates vying for leadership positions, go through intense vetting, rally up convincing campaigns and ‘enjoy’ nerve-racking moments as they waited anxiously for votes to be cast and decisions to be made.
