Our purpose is to connect learners as local citizens of today with the ideas, knowledge and skills they will need as the global citizens they must become.
We will help them to be curious, ask probing questions and be brave in finding solutions.
They will engage with the familiar and be engaged by the unusual; be immersed in language and communicate in multiple languages; know how to practise, be resilient and challenged; to be proud of their local environment and think on a global scale; work individually and add their voice to the many; to accept help, give charitably and embrace altruism; to love difference, be different and stand up for the rights of others just because it is the right thing to do.
We want them to be relentlessly creative, critically curious and to live ambitiously.
