Global Challenge/NAISAK Award

Global Challenge:

We are delighted to announce that UNICEF have invited up to 80 Nord Anglia Education students to participate in the UN’s High Level Political Forum on sustainable development in New York in July 2017. This is a unique opportunity that is exclusive to NAE. Students will become ‘NAE Ambassadors’, and will influence politicians, demonstrating the action our schools are taking to tackle the United Nations’ Global Goals for sustainable development, which is the focus of our 2017 Global Challenge. The event will take place from 12 to 19 July in New York City. Students will participate in workshops, seminars and debates for the week. They will also work together to deliver presentations to the UN’s High Level Political Forum.

The students had to enter the competition by engaging with two of the Global Goals and identifying needs in the community with regards to Good Health and Zero Hunger. We had a number of projects entered and two really stood out.

The two students picked to represent our school are Ahnaful Hoque and Sharvez Sivam from Year 9. They have both worked to combat hunger and bad health in Qatar and Tanzania. Their projects ranged from ensuring access to water for workers in Qatar, installing smokeless stoves and solar lights in Tanzania to helping out at Sports Day here at school. Not only have they learned a lot about the goals in their work, they are also sharing their learning with their peers at school and are very excited to represent NAISAK in New York in the summer. As a team of educators, we could not be more delighted to see two of our students join others from NAE and attempt to make a difference.

NAISAK Award: A message to our students!

At Nord Anglia International School Al Khor, we are always encouraging you to be ambitious in your learning. We have recently developed the NAISAK Award to encourage you to be ambitious in your wider lives as well as in school. We are running this with the intention to bring the Duke of Edinburgh International Award to NAISAK in the future.

The NAISAK Award serves therefore as preparation for the International Award should you choose to take up the challenge in the academic year 2017-2018. Those taking part in Silver or Gold awards will be able to carry forward the time served into next year, as participants sometimes find they are not always able to meet all requirements in a single academic year.

The International Award is held in high regard by educational institutes and employers, as students who participate develop their soft skills that demonstrate an ability to adapt to new situations, work in teams, being accountable and show dedication towards completing tasks.

The NAISAK Award consists of four sections:

Service: You will undertake an hour a week helping others and volunteering in a community activity. Volunteering is all about making a difference to other people’s lives. Perhaps you are interested in animals or conservation? Or you might like to work with older people or raise money for a cause that means a lot to you? From teaching children cyber safety to starting a local recycling campaign, the Service section of your NAISAK Award enables you to give your time to help others and change things for the better.

You will really put your heart into volunteering through your NAISAK Award.

Skills: The Skills section is about discovering what you are really good at. Maybe you want to get better at something you already do, like playing a musical instrument, or learn something for the very first time, like how to design a website?

By developing practical and social skills, and nurturing your personal interests and talents, you will boost your self-esteem and your CV.

Physical Recreation: The Physical section is a chance for you to focus on your health and fitness and have fun along the way. As long as you pick something that requires a sustained level of energy and physical activity, the possibilities are endless. Improve your football, rock climbing or dance skills, or try a completely new sport or activity. Join a team or do it on your own. You do not have to be very fit or a world-class athlete - with the NAISAK Award, it is about setting your own challenges, giving 100% and being the very best you can be.

Adventure: As part of a small team, you will plan and complete two expeditions; a practice and final expedition that will truly stretch your horizons. You will improve your communication and leadership skills and take a rucksack full of memories home with you. Depending on the level of the award, the length and difficulty of the expedition will vary.

The award is split into three levels:
