Making Connections whether Local or Global

Written by Dougie McNeill, aspiring leader and Learning Resource Leader. 

A couple of weeks ago, I was particularly excited to welcome a new student joining our community from overseas. This student, understandably, was feeling slightly anxious about what differences they might encounter being in a new school and even more so, a new country. However, it did not take them long to realize that they had found themselves in an internationally minded setting.

Although surrounded by students and families from across the globe, this student was more surprised to hear me say to a colleague that I was ‘waiting to hear back from Hong Kong and Poland’. After some rather serious questioning from the student, I explained that I was working on a project with some other teachers within Nord Anglia Education and that in fact lots of teachers within BISC Lincoln Park were doing the same. The student’s eyes widened.

Whether through the online Global Campus, our Heritage Community groups and student Ambassadors or by simply taking part in day-to-day lessons using theInternational Primary Curriculum: are students are immersed in a place where global community is thriving. With future careers no longer being constrained by distance, the world really is at our fingertips and at BISC-LP our students (and staff) will be ready for it.
