The Papyrus is our high school literary publication.
It is entirely student centered and student run. High school students submit to the publication and the Papyrus staff does all editorial work, runs contests, select art work, works with the budget, advertises the book, does the lay out, and more.
Through this club, students will form a company, conceive a business idea that will improve peoples’ lives, develop an idea into a product,
and sell this product to the greater Cairo community. INJAZ is one of the most popular clubs at CAC for a reason. Our teams have been very successful over the past several years. In 2011 CAC won 1st place in a national competition and thereafter represented Egypt at an international competition in Dubai. In 2013, our team was recognized at a national competition for having an outstanding marketing department. With this legacy of success, our goal is to win the national competition each and every year.
