UN and Global Challenge Trip to New York - A Teacher’s Perspective

03 July 2017

When I first heard about rumours of this trip, I was so thrilled for the students, but didn’t dream of going myself! When it turned out that there was an opportunity, how could I have turned it down? Being involved in Model United Nations, I was excited about the chance to go to the actual United Nations and feel privileged to be able to do so.

I am not just excited about going to New York for the first time; seeing the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the United Nations, I am also pleased to work with the students on the global challenge initiatives and show the world how students can help in a very real way. Here at BISS Puxi, we do so much for the local community and further afield by helping children in Cambodia, or planting trees in Inner Mongolia. It will be great to share this work with people who can make real policies about these issues and implement global change.

The trip to New York has also been a great experience, of working collaboratively on a project with other Nord Anglia schools across the region. It will be an amazing opportunity for us to get to know our sister schools better and see what kind of charity work they do. It will be a great experience for our students to give a presentation to adults, who are all important UN officials, to work to a tight deadline, to work with a group of students who you do not know very well and achieve something that could have a real impact. I wish them luck, however, I don’t think they’ll need it; I am in total admiration of what our students can achieve and am confident they will make us all very proud!
