Global Perspectives is a new Cambridge course that we are implementing this academic year at Festivalnaya. The idea of Global Perspectives is that we teach students skills that they can use in their future education and their future careers. The skills taught to the students are Research, Analysis, Evaluation, Communication, Collaboration, and Reflection. With these skills, our students will be completing projects throughout the school year. Some of these projects will include: assemblies, walkthroughs, campaigns, and others. The goal of these projects is to get the students to practice the six skills as well as consider topics on a personal, local, and global level. In order to keep the students interested, the topics are modern day challenges and issues that the students will face as they grow older. The list of topics includes such items as: Disease and health; Fuel and energy; Technology; etc. If you would like to learn more about this course, there is a video and more information on the Cambridge website at cambridgeinternational.org/programmes-and-qualifications/cambridge-secondary-1/cambridge-secondary-1/curriculum/cambridge-lower-secondary-global-perspectives/
Mr. William, Global Perspectives Teacher
Members of the University of Cambridge can often be spotted strolling through the streets of Cambridge proudly displaying their college scarf or wearing robes (official academic dress).
As you already know, Global perspectives develops the skills of research, analysis, evaluation, reflection, collaboration and communication. In order to support this development, we organized some trips.
As a parent, you want your children to learn all that they can, to be curious about exploring the world, as well as learn how to read and write. Did you know that you can help your son or daughter academically by playing with them outside of school?
The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a book that tells us a story that takes place during World War II and follows 9-year-old Bruno in Germany.
Here at Cambridge International School, we recently completed our Cambridge Mile Run Festival. On September 28th student, parents, teachers, and others all came out to celebrate fitness and health.
The University of Cambridge has over 100 libraries. The central library alone (the Cambridge University library, or the ‘UL’) has approximately 8 million volumes, and is able to request a free copy of every book published in the UK and Ireland.
One book in the CIS Festivalnaya library that I recommend is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
