Forget about the Avengers or the Justice League, Nord Anglia has begun to create its own network of Global Superheroes who are working together to help us reach the United Nations Global Goals by 2030. For the Global Challenge, our Year 7 and 8 students created superheroes to be used to help spread awareness and understanding of the Global Goals. These were inspired by the Indian UN superheroes Chakra the Invincible and Mighty Girl. The primary school then voted for their favourites. The competition was so tight we’ve selected three winners:
Superhero Challenge Results from Global Campus on Vimeo.
- Xi Xiao Long by Dina Evdokimova and Beatrice Villaflor (Year 8)
- Pang-O-Lynn: The Human Pangolin by Oliver Ansell (Year 7)
- Neon Boy by Nao Matsushita (Year 7)
We hope to use these characters to help promote the Global Goals in the years ahead.
To expand this competition beyond our school, Tristan Surgenor and his friends from year 7 helped to create the Superhero Challenge competition for Global Campus. Over 100 students from across 9 different schools entered the competition to create a superhero to represent their city or region. The winners are announced in this video which also features a short interview about superheroes with award winning children’s author David Solomons whose book “My Brother is a Superhero” has been a very popular title on this year’s Global Library list. The joint winners Selina from Guangzhou and Hafizh from Qatar will win a signed copy of one of Solomon’s books.
Joint 1st Place Alpha Cyborg, Hafizh, Year 5, Nord Anglia International School Al Khor
Joint 1st Place Robowater, Selina, British School of Guangzhou
Runner Up: Camel-Eon, Nicole Suresh, Year 6, Compass MK DOHA Qatar
Thanks to all the students who entered the competition and to the teachers who helped to promote it and make it such a success.
