MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL – INTERNATIONAL MINDEDNESS

INTERNATIONAL MINDEDNESS

Dear Staff, Students and Parents

Our vision is to be an outstanding learning community that is internationally-minded, inspiring all members to achieve their potential. I would like us all to focus our thoughts on the international mindedness of our school.

As an international school, international mindedness is at the centre of everything we do. We define international mindedness as the embodiment of interculturalism, both within and beyond the school community. We believe that students have the capacity to become proactive global citizens who respect diversity, understand global issues, and live sustainably for the benefit of the entire global community.

We recognise that students develop intercultural competencies and become global citizens when they:

  • understand their own identity;
  • celebrate cultural diversity;
  • learn about different cultures, as well as develop global political, environmental, economic, social and cultural understanding;
  • understand, respect and appreciate different perspectives and worldviews;
  • establish positive interactions with people of different national, ethnic, religious, social, or cultural backgrounds, or genders;
  • communicate effectively and respectively, be adaptable, and learn to manage and resolve conflict;
  • think critically and learn to reason with information;
  • learn about human rights, think about their sense of right and wrong, and take constructive action towards collective wellbeing;
  • act sustainably and take constructive action towards sustainable development;
  • move beyond monolingualism.

Very best wishes

Duncan
