Hayah was one of the first schools in Egypt to implement a character education program and is a pioneer school in character building.
Hayah strongly believes and values the emotional and social wellbeing of its students and is dedicated to helping students transition into the world as self-reflective and proactive individuals in their community.
The role of Hayah’s Character Education program is to provide an emotionally and socially safe environment in which students can express themselves. The program is a continuum of the school’s learning process that enables students to become moral, caring, critical, responsible individuals. As the pioneer Character Education school in Egypt, the program is supported by a dedicated team of teachers for kindergarten, elementary, middle, and high school, who take up multiple roles as teachers, coaches and mentors and activity coordinators. They passionately interact and network with students in and out of class through one-on-one and group discussions, reflections, activities, trips, camps, as well as weekend events. In addition to building a strong relationship with the students, the Character Education team closely allies with teachers and parents to achieve the program’s individual and collective goals. School wide, the program is reinforced holistically through interdisciplinary integration of the core values.
