Building Character

Through our programmes that relate to our commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, such as our partnership with WWF and our work with Eco-Schools, we enable students to build their own understanding of world events, to think about their values and what´s important to them, and to challenge ignorance and intolerance wherever they find it.

Our students have a voice and a Globeducate learning journey will inspire them to take an active role in their community and to work with others to help build a more equal, fair and sustainable world.  In all of our schools students are given opportunities to act and to influence the world around them - whether that is by participating in the Eco-Schools council or beach clean-up, or organising awareness campaigns, such as Grade 4 student Diantha at The Indian Public School who worked with her local community to encourage people to wear masks or ICS Paris Grade 12 student Milene (photo, right), a youth ambassador for UNICEF, who reached the 2021 Junk Kouture Grand Finale with her sustainability-inspired dress design and creation.

 

Resilience and tenacity

A key element of building character in our students is the ways in which we find new ways to build resilience in our students, to help them achieve their goals in life and be able to push through challenge and, sometimes, failure. We talk about the many different forms that success can take.  Through our global outdoor learning programme, and outdoor classroom days, and unique experiences such as The Journey, Globeducate students can gain experience of setting personal challenges, working with others, and overcoming personal difficulties, pushing beyond their comfort zones.
