We love how this initiative injects a dose of excitement outside the classroom, while providing a valuable learning experience for the students!
One of the perks of putting the kiddos through an international school system is the diversity it offers. With a global student body, campus life offers plenty of opportunities for children to interact with those from different backgrounds, expanding their worldview. Now, GESS goes a step further with a new initiative offering students firsthand international experiences without leaving the campus through the GESS Ambassador Visits series.
Introducing: GESS Ambassadors Visit series
The Ambassadors Visit series involves global ambassadors interacting with students through fun activities. This means the kiddos can learn about different cultures and countries beyond the classroom! Students can expect to be whipping up traditional cuisine, playing sports together and trying their hand at other activities that are unique to the country that the ambassador hails from.
Through this series, the students can speak to the ambassadors in a more comfortable, informal setting. Not only can they learn about other cultures, they can also gain insight into a day in the ambassadors’ lives – students who are considering a career in foreign policy would greatly benefit from the latter! This is one of many ways GESS fuels students’ ambitions and exposes them to a larger worldview, empowering them to dream bigger and aspire higher.
ICYMI: A peek into past experiences
What’s been cooking at GESS, you ask? Well, past activities have seen students literally cooking up a storm, with the Austrian and Danish ambassadors introducing them to traditional delicacies. Out on the football field, the school’s girls’ team had the chance to run with the Belgian ambassador. Plus, kids in the Model United Nations (MUN) programme were treated to a visit by the German ambassador. And coming up, the Dutch ambassador will be swinging by a MUN session, too.
With all that GESS is doing to broaden its students’ horizons, we’re stoked to see what other experiences are on the school’s agenda! Wanna find out more? Visit GESS for all the details.
