Partner Schools

Partner Schools are mainly IB Schools however CAS Trips are generally open to grade 11 and 12 students. A partner school commits to actively support the organizing of MCP CAS Trips regarding planning and preparing including sending teachers/parents along as chaperones and develops a funding scheme together with the Board of MCP. A partner school actively supports the development and training for CAS project leaders and provides funding and fundraising events equivalent to a partner of MCP. 

A partner school will be posted with its own profile on our website and Facebook wall and is presented at all events of MCP. We will support a partner school in the development of an educational whole school concept in accordance with the curriculum.
