It is without a doubt that our students from BVIS had an incredibly memorable summer! It was definitely a valuable period of time for our 3 students - Stella, Kaysie, and Noel - when they received the honour of being BVIS ambassadors in the NAE-UNICEF Student Summit event in New York city from the 7th to 13th of July. They experienced a variety of educational activities such as debates in Model United Nations, workshops with UNICEF leaders, tours inside the United Nations building, and discussions among High Level Political Forum delegates. This trip has provided so many eye-opening lessons for them, which would be utilised to help the BVIS community in the upcoming school year.
“I was so excited for all the activities during the trip! Moreover, I was given the opportunity, as a member of the media team, to take over Nord Anglia social media accounts, and from that experience, I learnt a lot about professionalism. Thanks to this trip, I also gained a lot of new connections, and I do believe this will be the beginning of many incredible friendships.” - Stella 13B
“It was such an amazing opportunity to be a part of this trip! We had such an eye-opening experience and got to enjoy a truly international atmosphere. Global citizenship was one of the core values of this trip, and the different perspectives we were exposed to taught us a lot in the way we think and perceive others, which is crucial in the time where stereotypes and discrimination still exist." - Kaysie,13I
“I really enjoyed the workshop where we made a lesson plan to convey the global goals we had this year to other students. You can see how many students think differently through this activity.”- Noel
