Global Campus Annual Summits and Expeditions bring students from around the world together for a face to face gathering. In 2013 this included opportunities to participate in forums with policy makers and influencers, and in 2014 representatives from our schools will be participating in an expedition to Tanzania.
In 2012, students had the opportunity to travel to London, to take part in the Global Student Forum, joining with many others from around the world to share cultural differences and similarities, to debate current events and to offer a student voice.
In 2013/14, over a hundred students from the Nord Anglia Education family of schools will travel to Tanzania, to learn first hand about some of the important issues and challenges that will shape the middle part of the 21st century. They will sleep in a bush camp, work in a local orphanage, teach in a rural primary school, learn about conservation on safari and about the slave trade in Zanzibar. It will be the learning opportunity of a lifetime and there is already a buzz around the school as the awareness raising and preparation begins.
There will be more exciting opportunities to come as we look to give children and young people the chance to learn from each other in authentic global contexts, preparing them to be leaders of the world to come.
