As I stood and read one of the plaques in the Peace Park in Hiroshima, a myriad of emotions ran through my mind; part of which imagined myself there on the 6th August 1945. It was early in the morning; people were starting their day, thinking of what they had to do, how their relatives were and many just normal musings.

Paradoxically, it appears to me that all modern airports look alike. So much so that if one does not pay too much attention to the advertising or the names of cafes and restaurants, it is possible to contemplate that one is in some neutral zone; a holding place.

So the world mourns the passing of a man. Not just any man, but somebody rather special: Nelson Mandela. The corroboration of his acceptance as a leader and inspirational figure can be found in the abbreviation of his name. To many around the world he is simply “Mandela,” but to those in his beloved South Africa he was referred to affectionately as “Madiba.” Mandela's ill health and numerous periods of...

Having now lived and worked in India for a number of months, it is time to ask myself whether I feel any clearer about the metaphor that is implicit in the phrase “Incredible India.” Certainly, having traveled around certain areas of the country and, perhaps far more importantly, having interacted with some of its many citizens, I have a little more knowledge and understanding than was the case when I...

There are moments as a teacher, or as a Head of School, where all you can do is to sit back and marvel at what your students are doing. It actually happens on far more occasions than we sometimes care to remember, but on every occasion there is that sensation of goose bumps and the inevitable tension in your chest. This afternoon, at the Gotham Comedy Club, was no exception,...

The Boston Marathon, just like any official marathon, is the supreme test of an athlete’s ability to sustain the physical, emotional and psychological stresses associated with running 42.195 kilometers or 26 miles and 385 yards. Such a race always produces a number of runners who never cross the finishing line because they have had an accident, have injured themselves or have lost the will to continue having experienced the ultimate...

Cognitive development is a field of study in neuroscience and psychology focusing on a child’s development in terms of information processing, conceptual resources, perceptual skills, the learning of language(s) and other aspects of brain development as compared to an adult. In other words, cognitive development is the emergence of the ability to think and understand. An enormous amount of research has been conducted into understanding how a child imagines the...

Students attended hands-on sessions during the term with four prevalent ethnicities: Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Indigenous....

Where and how do you learn? How do you develop a passion for curiosity? How do you keep your mind open to new people, ideas, and possibilities? These are all questions being faced by educators and students as our world gains a more global context.  For a rare few who are lucky enough to have talented and equally curious teachers, this might happen in the confines of the classroom. But...

 Hi Andy, tell us a bit about yourself. I grew up in the beautiful industrial city of Birmingham, and after a career in mental health work and various bits and bobs, I qualified to become a teacher. After a few years in the UK, I moved to the British Virgin Islands (which many viewed as an improvement even on Birmingham!) and from there on to Switzerland, my first stint at...

1. Hi Maxim. It's been two years now since you graduated from THINK Global School. What have you been up to in that time?  Since graduating from TGS, I have been attending the University of Toronto studying mineral (mining) engineering. I know you might be asking why, out of all engineering, I chose mineral engineering? It's because I want to throw myself into the space mining industry. I figured it...

Tattooing is the most misunderstood art form in Japan today. Looked down upon for centuries and rarely discussed in social circles, people with tattoos are outcasts in this country, banned from most public spaces such as beaches, bathhouses, and even gyms. Tattoos have an extensive history in Japan, and to truly understand the stigma behind them it is essential to be aware of their significance. The first records of tattoos...

Greetings TGS, Long time reader, first time blogger here. Some of you may have noticed that I can be a little patriotic... My friends in Abu Dhabi used to joke that New Zealand has "small country" syndrome because it is always determined to be the best. I think like the Canadians, we are determined not to be seen as the same as our more populated neighbours. With that in mind...
