Pink ribbons, fuchsia shirts, pink dotty ties, rosy headbands and t-shirts were abundant during Cancer Awareness week at International School of London (ISL) Qatar. The school community of students, staff and parents wore creative, pink-related colours with pride.

The numerous fundraising events ranged from pink ribbon sales to the very popular bake sale and student Walkathon. Increasing awareness of cancer is a long-standing tradition of the school and following October’s focus on female-related illnesses, November will promote awareness for male-related cancers. During ‘Pink Week’, an impressive amount of over QAR12,000 was raised for Qatar Cancer Society’s benefit.

The ISL Qatar community events create opportunities for parents and staff to lead by example and to engage in the overall educational experience of students. These events, which are outside academic endeavours, enable students to contribute and to make a difference to the world around them. The International School of London Qatar has an outstanding reputation for high academic standards, prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes and an impressive record of admission to leading universities worldwide.
