“Every year the Global Classroom challenges you to work together as a whole school community to showcase what you can do when you collaborate.”
“This year we’ve joined forces with Oxfam, one of the world's most respected charities who are internationally renowned for making a difference. What impact can you have on the world!?”
These words on the Global Classroom page of the school website summarise the importance of this initiative not only to our school but also to our family of 35 schools around the world.
Our aim as a Nord Anglia Education family, is to nurture confident, open-minded students who are aware of their responsibilities as global citizens and consider what they can do to make a difference to the world around them. This year’s Big Challenge, Make it Right, focuses on the Convention on the Rights of the Child and raises awareness that these rights are ignored, even now, 25 years after the United Nations initiated the treaty.
The challenge calls for the students to use their voice to defend the rights of children everywhere. By expressing concern and taking positive action our students can take action and Make it Right.
The Big Challenge, Make it Right project has my full support with all donations and warm clothing going to help the children of the Ukraine. I do hope that we can all support such a worthwhile cause.
