CIS recognises the outstanding work being done by students in CIS Member Schools that promote global citizenship and the development of international awareness in their communities.
Badr Al-Yahya, from Muscat International School, Oman received the CIS International Student Award.
Project: Community Service
Badr has represented the school in both swimming and the Model United Nations. This has contributed to his development, in which he has flourished as a student academically, and through both collaboration and cooperative activities with the Head of Secondary and our Head of Careers and University Admissions. He managed a team of students for various school activities such as parent afternoons, the Charity Carnival, and Pink Day. Badr has become the unofficial Spanish liaison representative of the Head of Secondary, as he has helped new Spanish speaking pupils adjust to life here at MIS and Oman. A task that requires an intuitive understanding of how to deal with people and a real sense of pastoral care for our younger pupils here at MIS.
This student has been nominated for their reliability, trustworthiness and self-belief which makes them a shining example to all of their peers in Grade 12. He has illustrated maturity beyond his years, and captures what it means to be a model student at MIS, Prefect and ultimately the Head Boy.
