Reflections from the Global Classroom Tanzania Expedition 2014

08 April 2014

In February, 105 of our students took part in the opportunity of a lifetime - the Global Classroom Tanzania Expedition 2014. In this video, find out how they contributed to the Arusha community, what they learnt, and what the experience meant to them.

  • Global Classroom Face to Face Expedition: Tanzania 2014

In the build-up to the expedition, our students enthusiastically contributed to discussions, challenges and webinars in the Global Classroom online community. They learnt about the culture, traditions, geography and economy of Tanzania, as well as the Millennium Development Goals and the role of Non- Governmental Organisations.

During their time in Tanzania, our students lived and worked together in Arusha to develop their understanding of life in Tanzania. Our students experienced a range of activities which gave them insight into the diverse and vibrant culture of Tanzania and supported learning in the local community, working directly with the Maua School to renovate the school buildings and teach local pupils aged from four to 16 years old.

In addition to supporting the community, the expedition also helped our students develop as high performance learners. Professor Deborah Eyre, Education Director, commented, "In Tanzania, they had to adapt to unusual circumstances, collaborate, cope with adversity, think creatively and flexibly, and learn from different perspectives. All of which help them to develop as global citizens.”

Monika, a student at The British School Warsaw, said “It taught us a lot, not only about other cultures and people, but we also got to know ourselves better."

Every student who participated in the expedition left with a passion to change something; a drive to make a difference. For Alex, a student at the British American School of Charlotte, it was the first time he had left the USA; "helping out the community of Tanzania has just been a terrific and wonderful experience – probably the best feeling I’ve ever had."

Returning back to their schools as Ambassadors for Africa, they are now working with the whole school community to initiate a campaign for action, building understanding of life in Africa and strengthening links with their new friends in Arusha.
