A Global Gold Medal for our Students

The 2016 Global Games have come to a close, leaving its own legacy of good times, friendships and competition.

  • Global Games 5

Last week, The Global Games North America took place at Windermere Preparatory School in Orlando, Florida. Nord Anglia students from across North America came together in the spirit of competition and friendship, and left with a lifetime of memories.

33 students from our school joined the Games this year. After daily competitions, Nord Anglia Education students had the opportunity to mingle in a variety of social activities such as bowling, arcade games and a visit to Universal's Islands of Adventure, and a trip to Disney World's Magic Kingdom. While the host school Windermere took home the overall title, our students came home with with a variety of medals, both team and individual successes. Our boys soccer team brought home a bronze medal, while some of our girls joined other schools' teams in flag football and volleyball, bringing home silver and bronze medals respectively. In track and swimming, our students brought home the full array of medals - gold, silver and bronze - in girls long jump, girls high jump, girls 1600m track, boys 400m relay, boys 400m relay, boys 50m breast stroke, boys 200m freestyle relay, and boys 200m medley relay.

While the Games are centered around sport, to Nord Anglia they represent so much more. The unique event brings our “Be Ambitious” philosophy to life as students reach outside their comfort zones, participating and competing beyond what they’re normally accustomed to. And when students, faculty and staff come together as they did during the Games, the power of 11 schools within our North American region shine – imagine the global reach we feel with the full combined power of all 43!
