The MIS Community began its support of UNICEF in 1979, on the initiative of staff member Chris Butler. In this year the students of the Junior School raised DM 12,000.
For nearly three decades, Munich International School has supported the activities of UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund). Not only have we raised funds, we have also increased awareness of UNICEF’s causes, ranging from the fight to stop child trafficking, to improving children's health standards globally.
UNICEF also plays an integrative role within our school curriculum. Materials from UNICEF are utilized within some units of Inquiry in the Junior School eg. Grade 3 study on Children's Rights. Senior School History has access to information on statistical figures in relation to children's rights and world poverty. Middle and Senior School students become active with UNICEF as part of their Community and Service programme.
In recognition of our continuing work, UNICEF has granted MIS “Schule Aktiv” Status. We are one of only a small number of schools across Germany to have been awarded this honour.
Parents and students interested in actively supporting UNICEF at MIS are encouraged to please contact us at anytime.
