Taking part in the BIG Question gives everyone the chance to engage with others across boundaries and discover new perspectives, discover a joy for learning, research and think critically outside of the formal learning environment, and work together across cultures and borders in a spirit of international cooperation.
Week 1 BIG Question: What does Hope mean to you?
Week 2 follow up question: How can we inspire hope and happiness in our communities?
A new question will go live on Monday 20th April…
As we’re all finding different ways of working in our Virtual School, now is the perfect time for our students to try new things and explore what happens when they get to use their time differently. The Global Campus Xtra Challenges have been chosen to encourage our students and families to do just that. Choose a challenge a day, one a week, or whatever you like, but have a go at something you wouldn’t normally try. We’re asking you to challenge yourself and discover your new awesome!
The challenges are sorted into five categories: Language and Culture, Health and Fitness, Design and Make, Arts and Crafts, and Personal Challenge. If you’re a parent with Junior or Secondary school-age children, simply log on to Global Campus using their account (following the guidance at the end of this article) and have a look at the challenges on offer. For our Early Years and Infants children, you can take part by submitting their challenges to Seesaw or to Ms Sarah (email@example.com). Each challenge has been given a star rating so you know how challenging it is, and they range from creating a cultural art installation to creating a healthy treat, to showing off some of your hidden talents. We’re looking forward to seeing what our families can do when they challenge themselves!
There will be more Global Campus activities coming out to students over the next few weeks linked to our Juilliard Collaboration and our Expeditions programme. More information to follow soon...
