As the year beds in we are now launching two completions on Global Campus. First is the Creative Writing Competition and the other is the Comic Book Competition. Please see details below.
The important facets of the competition involve firstly, the importance of the environment in relation to the Global goals, which can be found on the Global campus website or viewed on various displays around the school. The second is the assurance of children's rights in relation to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Each year group teacher will give a thorough explanation of these focuses in each class accompanied by some great presentations available to teachers on Global Campus or distributed by Mr. Casey, the Global Campus Leader for Primary.
Also, this month the Global Campus Library will be available to access Global Campus Online articles so it is a great opportunity to sit down as a family and discuss issues that may have come to the surface having browsed through the GC online library.
Creative Writing Competition 2019/20
This year, students of all ages are invited to enter Nord Anglia's Global Campus Creative Writing Competition. The Creative Writing Competition will be launched by award winning author, Margriet Ruurs this year and is based on engaging in the importance of the environment in relation to the achievement of all Global Goals and the assurance of children's rights in relation the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Student entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges, including UNICEF and Margriet. This will be a collaborative effort at school level, working to pair language and arts, using Margriet Ruurs book “Stepping Stones” for inspiration.

Comic Book Competition 2019/20
This year, we invite ALL students to enter the Comic Book Competition. The winning pieces of the Comic Book Competition are showcased in a digital comic book. Working directly with Gavin Aung Than and using Zen Pencils for inspiration, students are asked to unpack the core issues around the Global Goals in relation to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNRC), consider what this means to them, choose a famous quote (that can be correctly attributed) that helps highlight their thoughts on the UNCRC and develop an accompanying comic. Comic Book pieces will be judged by the Global Campus team, UNICEF and perhaps a surprise judge.
