‘Global Citizens- Vietnamese Perspective’ is core to our Aide Memoire but what does this look like in the Primary school? This week, the school has been alive with colour, language, song, dance and drama as we celebrated International Week.  International week is our annual celebration of international education featuring exciting activities designed to educate our children to be global citizens. Our curriculum and enrichment opportunities are designed so that our children have an awareness of and understand the wider world - and their place in it. They take an active role in their learning, and work with others to make our world more equal, fair and sustainable. They build their own understanding of world cultures and event, all the while thinking about their values and what's important to them. Through our learning in school we hope to foster the values of tolerance, acceptance, and celebration of differences and awareness; traits necessary for global citizens.

Each class has focused their learning on one country this week, with a total of 22 countries celebrated. The children had many opportunities to learn about the history and geography of the countries as well as experiencing the food, culture, music, dance, traditional games and sports. Excellent discussions took place about how these traditions differed from their home country. 

The interactive home country exhibition was an excellent way for our children to experience different aspects of our three main home countries in the school, Vietnam, England and Korea. Children were invited to listen to music, read books, look at artwork and of course delight in tasty traditional snacks such as British tea and biscuits and homemade cinnamon and rice juice. My sincere thanks go to Ms Thu for organizing this event and also to our Parent Ambassadors and Korean mums who came along to support. The week culiminated with our ‘travel morning’ on Friday where the children were able to visit different classes/countries to share their learning and our special International Assembly where the whole school community came together in celebration.

Next week, our final week of term, is residential trips week. Years 4, 5 and 6 are very excited about the opportunity to be with friends away from school and take part in lots of experiential learning.  We believe that learning is most powerful when students have the opportunity to experience learning both inside the classroom, in our local communities, and in a real-world context.

I wish you all a happy and restful weekend.
