Students took part in the annual Globeducate Virtual Arts Competition in November, with the theme “Connections”. From ages 5 to 18, nearly 200 students in 39 schools from around the world jumped on the opportunity to showcase and explore their talents in sculpture, poetry, drawing, 3D art, painting, photography and creative writing.
A Global Education for the 21st Century
Globeducate is a world leader in K-12 private schools serving more than 25,000 students. With over 50 premium international schools, Globeducate reaches 10 countries including Spain, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Portugal, India, Malaysia, and Qatar.
As part of Globeducate, we believe that our students will only succeed in the world of tomorrow, if they are prepared for the challenges that they will face. In addition to providing an excellent education, we ensure that our students develop skills and abilities beyond the purely academic. Unprecedented innovation in science and technology will transform the way we live, and the way we work. Our students will need to constantly align their skillset to keep pace.
We prepare our students for jobs that have not been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated. To navigate such uncertainty our students must develop creativity, self-confidence and perseverance; they will need to respect and appreciate the ideas, perspectives and values of others, and they will need to care about the well-being of their wider community and planet.
As educators we have the opportunity and responsibility to lay the foundations for a better future. We prepare each of our students to become a global citizen who can shape the world.
Students from Blyth Academy London and Blyth Academy Mississauga attended Globeducate’s annual Student Leadership Summit hosted for three days in October. The event brought two senior students from 23 schools together for a three-day, online symposium. Students from Blyth Academy as well as students in Europe and India joined the event – the first time it was held virtually rather than at Stonar in England – to develop their leadership skills, both in theory and practice.
Every year, Globeducate’s group of 50 international private schools take part in the Globeducate Global Arts Awards. This year, the Awards honour those students that showed creativity in interpreting this year’s theme, Change.
