On Friday, 25 October 2019, International School Moshi (ISM) will celebrate 50 years of excelling in international education in Tanzania. This remarkable achievement is elevated by the school’s recent membership to the UWC (United World Colleges) movement and rebranding as UWC East Africa. UWC East Africa is the newest member to the UWC movement, which makes it the 18th UWC worldwide and the second UWC school on the African continent.
The celebrations will begin on Friday 25 October at 8.30 am at the school’s Moshi campus and continue at its Arusha campus from 4.30 pm. Expected guests include UWC Alumni, Heads and the board chairs of the other 17 UWC Schools and Colleges, representatives of UWC national committees and members of UWC International.
Earlier this year, the school offered more than 30 African students scholarships to do the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) at one of its two campuses in Arusha and Moshi. In August, it welcomed 80 students from across the globe into its IBDP. Becoming a UWC involves a substantial change in the composition of the student body, with a more diverse range of international students attending the school.
In the last 50 years, ISM strived to create a learning environment where young people can test and try out new ideas as they grow and make sense of the world around them. As UWC East Africa the school will grow in diversity and increase opportunities for youth in the region.
