Community Engagement Programs at ICS
At Indian Central School, we are committed to working collaboratively with members of our community to bring about positive social and environmental impact. We consciously engage in meaningful initiatives to have an enduring shared benefit for all involved catalysing the fulfilment of our community engagement goals.
Our primary goal is creating communities, by working with current students, former students, parents, academic staff, administrative staff, support staff in various capacities to address specific interests and unmet needs. To satisfy this objective, we established a community engagement model that our community and community partners can all stand behind. Over the last two years since the commencement of community engagement, our school has hosted and organised multiple workshops both physically and, in more recent times with Covid-19 situation, virtually. Our workshops have focused on supporting parents with their children’s learning, building routines and healthy habits at home. In doing so, we hope to encourage parents to actively spend time with their children and bring families together. Please see recordings of our previous workshops by clicking on this link:

As a school with a vibrant multicultural community, we understand it is essential for us to act responsibly toward our people by empowering them and utilizing their talents to our strength. We can achieve this by building a strategic and sustainable community engagement program aligned with our school vision and culture that truly benefits our community. By developing our staff, we realize that they in turn will encourage our students to realize their potential and be their best within the classroom and beyond.
At ICS, we believe that having strong guiding principles for all our community initiatives are key.
- 1. Meaningful impact – we focus on addressing unmet needs within our school community.
- 2. Sustainable development fundamentals – our community engagement initiatives follow the Sustainable Development Goals chartered by the United Nations
- 3. Management of community engagement – Proper monitoring and management of community engagement initiatives are vital to perfect our approach.
Our secondary goal is nurturing the environment, which we are actively pursuing by developing awareness and an empathetic attitude toward protecting the environment in the face of growing concerns over climate change. We practice this in several ways within the school environment by not littering and taking care of school property. This fits in with our greater desire to educate our community and evolve civic sense toward preserving our natural environment, particularly our beloved country of Kuwait, by consuming responsibly making our school and country sustainable for future generations.
