The Global Campus is unique to the Nord Anglia Education family of schools and provides an ambitious array of opportunities for over 32,000 students from our 42 schools to collaborate around the world. It includes online content and discussion forums, offline competitions and activities, and events that bring students from around the world face-to-face.
The passport provides a range of options for students to choose from. Each time they complete an activity in the Passport they’ll earn a stamp, and at the end of the year will receive an award relating to the number of stamps they have collected.
Parents can help their children by discussing some of the activities that they could try, recognising that some are going to be easier for them to engage with what’s available, and then encouraging them to attempt some more challenging accomplishments. For example, the Mini Adventures programme will enable them to think about issues local to you and then share their experiences in the wider context of the Global Campus.
The Global Campus Online is accessible via your child’s school Moodle, which uses their usual school logon that they would use in ICT. Moodle can be accessed from the school’s homepage. Ask your child to show you around this exciting world.
There is a Parents Area open to the public, and you can encourage your child to engage with lots of the activities and competitions. Only by getting involved and exploring what’s on offer will students discover just how many opportunities there are for them to develop, learn and grow as members of our Global Campus.
Right now, students are able to enter the Global Campus Creative Writing Competition and are asked to submit a piece of creative writing around the theme “Be Ambitious”. There are lots of tips on the Global Campus about how to make a great entry, along with the rules of the competition. Entries are open until January 15th 2016, so why not take a look now?
The aim of the Global campus is to contribute further towards creating a student body who will be globally and socially conscious adults, exposed to all cultures, developed as global citizens.
