On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders committed to 17 goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years...
End extreme poverty. Fight inequality & injustice. Fix climate change. These are called the Sustainable Development Goals.
This week, the British International School, together with schools in over 100 countries, took part in the World’s Largest Lesson to learn about these new goals. Through learning together with other young people, not just within the school but around the world, we hope that our students gained a sense of what it really means to be a global citizen.
It has been a very exciting week across our primary and secondary campuses; full of positivity, collaboration and reflection. Here is a snap shot of some of the activities that students have been involved in:
We have learnt about the new goals during form time, International Life Skills lessons and across many different subjects.
We have analysed various global issues and considered which issues they feel most passionate about.
Students and teachers have voted for the goals that are most important to them.
We have taken part in awareness raising activities such as the Dizzy Goal Challenge and taken some selfies!
On her class blog this week, TuTu in YR5 at Tu Xuong Campus summarised the weeks activities beautifully, by saying; "I hope everyone will listen to these goals and work hard to achieve all these goals that we have written down and take them to our hearts! It's not too late to help our planet to become nicer now! We will all work together in a huge community and help our world become better than ever."
Watch this space, as there is plenty more to come from the work achieved by BIS HCMC students this week! Including the results of our vote for the most important goals!
