The Big Challenge: Make it right

17 December 2014

  • Group One: Where do our phones come from? Focus on Congo
  • Group Two: Typhoon Haiyan, Philippines
  • Group Three: Four Leaf Clover - Ebola
  • Group Four: How has the war in Syria affected children?

Every year the Nord Anglia Global Classroom hold "The Big Challenge" a project based activity where students collaborate across their school and in discussion with fellow Nord Anglia students around the world. This year's challenge is run in co-ordination with the charity Oxfam. The problem which Oxfam wish us to address is outlined here. The challenge set for us by The Global Classroom is the MAKE IT RIGHT CHALLENGE

Year 7 pupils have been working on this for several weeks now, discussing and debating about which issue they want to address and what the best method of addressing it is.

Pupils formed groups, dissolved groups and made new groups and spent hours researching their chosen topics and producing presentations to share not only with their classmates but with the whole world via the Global Classroom. 

Yesterday, Year 7s presented their ideas to Years 4 to 7 in a special assembly in the Hall.

These presentations have now been uploaded to our school Learning Community (Moodle) page where students can also vote for the project they think is the best choice for our school to work on after the Christmas holidays.

You can see the four presentations above: 

Group 1: Where do our phones come from? Focus on Congo

Group 2: How have children in the Philippines been affected by Typhoon Haiyan?

Group 3: What is the connection between water and the Ebola virus? 

Group 4: How has the war in Syria affected children?

Pupils should vote before the end of the week but they can also join discussions on these topics on the Global Classroom and share their ideas with the world. We will announce the winning project in January and start work on 'Making it Right'!

In the meantime, children can learn more about all these topics and the good work that Oxfam do around the world (as well as some neat ideas for last minute Christmas gifts) at their websites: www.oxfam.org or www.oxfam.org.hk
