We hope you are having a fantastic week! Read below for the latest Global Campus news and updates. There are LOTS of exciting updates this week!
SUMMER PERFORMING ARTS WITH JUILLIARD (PRI / SEC) - This summer, students from all over the world with a shared enthusiasm for the performing arts will join together in Switzerland to grow and develop their talents. Students will choose to focus for two weeks on music (instrumental or vocal), dance, or drama and share their learning in a final performance. For more information, contact Caroline McMahan at College du Leman - firstname.lastname@example.org.
NORD ANGLIA OXFORD LEADERSHIP ACADEMY (SEC) - This summer, students aged 16-18 have the opportunity to spend two weeks at Balliol College, University of Oxford, to hone their debate and leadership skills. Students will also build their understanding of key global issues, develop their confidence and hone their leadership, collaboration, communication and persuasion skills. If you would like further information about the event or have any questions, Ben Horton will be happy to talk with you. He can be contacted at email@example.com.
VISUAL ARTS COMPETITION - Thank you to all of you who took part in this competition - we received nearly 500 entries from 22 of our schools which is fantastic! They are all now currently with our judge, Phillippa Walter, who is also the illustrator of our fabulous Mini Adventures map.

We look forward to your responses! You can also find the survey on the Primary Passport homepage.

PASSPORT AWARDS (PRI) – The Global Campus Student Leaders will be collecting in Passports on Friday 17th June to do the final count for the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Award! Passports will be returned but stamps after this date cannot be included. Get collecting!
WEATHER REPORT (PRI) - A new passport activity is live on the Primary Geography area. It requires you to create a week long weather diary for the place you live. There is such a contrast in climate across our family of schools, so this is a nice little activity to share these differences and become more aware of how other students are living across the world.
Have a great week all. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have, and keep in contact! We love to see and hear what you have been up to with the Global Campus.
