The protocol was signed by Head of the General Education Sector at the Ministry of Education Reda Hegazy and the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the International schools Association Nadia Mohammed Hafez.

The protocol falls within the framework the education ministry’s initiative whereby the international schools association will provide technical support to a number of the international governmental schools in Cairo, Alexandria, Qalyubia, Port Said, Sharqia, Gharbia Dakahlia Minya and Sohag governorates, as of the new academic year 2018/2019.
