AN UNFORGETABLE EXPERIENCE
“Venturing half way across the world seems a daunting prospect – especially when the children are only 9 and 10 years of age. But with the world becoming an ever increasingly smaller place and children needing experiences that will open their eyes to opportunities beyond the UK and Europe it also seemed inevitable that a Primary school would one day take that leap.
Fundamental to the trip was an understanding that global learning is an education that puts learning in a global context, fostering:
• Critical and creative thinking;
• Self-awareness and open-mindedness towards difference;
• Understanding of global issues and power relationships;
• Optimism and action for a better world.
Working with One World Education, Bishop Aldhelm’s has become a Global Youth Ambassador Partnership (GYAP) School and have taken full advantage of taking pupils abroad to Chengdu and Chongqing in China. Bishop Aldhelm’s is now teaching Mandarin to some of its pupils and has a number of young interpreters deployed to support learning across the school.
As a result of the trip, the children from Bishop Aldhelm’s, are now better placed to understand what it means to be a Global Citizen and draw on the benefits of breaking down cultural barriers and sharing experiences with other children from across the globe.”
