Global Challenge

Global Challenge 2018

As part of the Global Campus initiative, we are working on a variety of projects this term.  It would be great if you could encourage your children to have a go at some of these projects. THINK GLOBALLY, GET INVOLVED!

We have already entered the Global Challenge and had the World‘s Largest Lesson.  Pupils looked at the UN Goals of 4 (Quality Education) and 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).  Children across the school were engaged in activities including recording sound bites on what these Goals mean to them and the production of games and comic strips explaining them.  

For more information on the Goals and the Global Challenge, please click on the link below:

Comic Book Competition

U8 Comic Book Competition was run for the first time last year.  We were incredibly successful with our entries, winning a range of prizes.  Years 2 and 3 dedicated a large portion of curriculum time to this and the effort paid off.  Not only will we be attempting this in school but you can also get your children to try it at home and send the entries into your teacher.

Please use the link below to watch the Google slide presentation on the competition, and then have fun creating!

Please take a look at Jasmine's Biography:

Actor Jasmine Batchelor is originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. After dancing and singing throughout her childhood, she happened upon the black box of the Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts at Pebblebrook High School. Jasmine has been hooked on theater ever since! Before attending The Juilliard School for Drama in 2011, she attended Wright State University, where she studied acting and dance, and toured with the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s “Shakespeare LIVE!” educational troupe. 

Her professional credits include regional performances at Human Race Theater Company (Dayton, OH), Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey (Madison, NJ), Baltimore Center Stage (Baltimore, MD), Two River Theater (Red Bank, NJ), and TheaterWorks Hartford (Hartford, CT). In New York, she’s starred in workshops, readings, and new play developments at Manhattan Theater Club, Ars Nova, New York Theatre Workshop, and Strangemen Theatre Company. She’s also appeared as a series regular on the out-of-this-world Go90 digital series, Miss 2059, and guest starred in episodes of The Affair, The Good Fight, and most recently, NBC’s new hit medical drama, New Amsterdam. In 2019, she’ll begin filming as the lead in the independent film The Surrogate, helmed by up-and-coming director and writer, Jeremy Hersh. 

While at Juilliard, she was involved in the school and local community. At school, she served on the board of the Martin Luther King Celebration and wrote for The Juilliard Journal. Though discouraged, Jasmine’s favorite thing to do at Juilliard was sing in the stairwell. Outside of school, Jasmine taught dance and theater studies in various states and neighborhoods, focusing mainly on reaching at-risk students and black and brown neighborhoods. She continues to work as a teaching artist and mentor.

Jasmine very much enjoys Sour Patch Kids and stand-up comedy. She is currently writing her own comedy pilot and is determined to make her dream of creating a Lorraine Hansberry biopic a reality in the next five years.
