Spark School is dedicated to promoting global and cultural education. The Global Education experience in Spark School goes beyond the classroom, across international borders, into real life. Students are in charge of running their projects in the communities they belong to and share their work with their classmates.
What is Global Education?
Our vision is to provide a healthy environment for our students to become well-rounded individuals, curious to learn about world cultures, politics and global issues. We support and encourage students to build the necessary skills for living and thriving as global citizens in the 21st century.
- 1 Each student will have a personalised learning journey in developing life-long skills and attitudes.
- 2 Learning happens primarily outside of the classroom with a guided immersion in real-life experiences.
- 3 The Global Education learning journey is acknowledged and celebrated through the badges system.
Why is global education important?
The Global Education experience challenges students to:
Expand their international perspective, becoming more open-minded toward cultural differences and better understand global issues
Become more self-aware, show responsibility and respect towards others and their choices
Demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and cultivate their talents and inspire others
Have a positive attitude, show optimism, and understand their contribution to creating a better world.
Our Global Education Programme
Each student’s Global Education journey is tailored according to their interests in the global society, such as cultural diversity, democratic processes, political and social engagement, environmentalism, and civil society needs. Each project includes a wide variety of real-life learning opportunities and interactions with experts.
