Blog Update: Global Citizenship

Written by: Mrs. Derek Lineham

Global citizenship was the focus of the assembly and tutor periods this week. This is in line with the ‘international mindedness’ elements of the IMYC curriculum, which underpin the units of study.

After a general discussion in assembly, each tutor group is now working to produce original displays outlining what global citizenship actually means - and how a true global citizen could and should act.

All the groups realised that we can make a difference, acting as individuals or small groups, both on a personal and on a local level. La Garenne provides a real opportunity for ‘grass roots’ international awareness due to the varying cultural and linguistic backgrounds of our students and the mutual respect we endeavour to instil in our whole school community on a daily basis. Our philosophy clearly reflects this aim:

‘Teaching children how to live in an international community, showing tolerance and respect for others and thereby developing as internationally-aware global citizens’.
