1) Hi Samaya, can you tell us what you’ve been up to since graduating in 2017?  It’s strange to think that I’ve been away from TGS for three years already. After moving around so much with TGS it did take a bit of adjusting to settle into one place, but I’ve now made London a home. I’m in the final year of my undergraduate law degree at King’s College London...

Under most traditional curricula, students are rarely given the chance to explore the topics they are truly passionate about, instead focusing on concepts that have been deemed worthwhile by a governing body. This top-down approach to learning comes at a price: by the time most students reach high school age, they have become increasingly disengaged compared to their earlier years. But it doesn’t have to be this way. What if...

Following their ten day Rite of Passage in Northern England, our new students joined returning CM1 students in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, for the first term of the 2019-20 school year. During their time in BiH, students lived in the heart of Sarajevo’s Old Town, Baščaršija. One of Europe’s best kept secrets (although that secret is getting out), Sarajevo is always popular with our students, and they enjoyed finding chic...

Each term at THINK Global School is an opportunity for our students to explore a new part of the world and learn firsthand about the social, cultural, economic, and environmental factors that define it. Most recently, our students wrapped up terms in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Changemaker Cohort 1) and China (Changemaker Cohort 2), the first of four countries they’ll live in over the course of the 2019-20 school year.  Rather...

On September 4th, 2019, our CM1 students will be sharing their learning outcomes from their time in Bosnia & Herzegovina during our term-end project-based learning showcase. This term our students all participated in a reconciliation-themed module, developing creative ways to answer the driving question “How can we convey the complexities of ethnic and religious reconciliation through our experience of Bosnia and Herzegovina?” Students thought creatively and critically to answer this driving...

It’s been almost nine years since Pema joined THINK Global School during our inaugural year, and since then she’s kept herself remarkably busy. After graduating from the University of Melbourne, Pema returned home to Bhutan to pursue her true passion: playing football, which she now does for the Bhutan’s Senior Women’s National team. Thanks to Pema for sharing what she’s been up to since graduating TGS, and good luck in...

They are also encouraged to...

“The problem with conformity in education is that people are not standardized to begin with.” -Sir Kenneth Robinson One of the questions we are regularly asked these days is “How did you arrive at the Changemaker Curriculum?” This question is understandable given how ingrained standardized curricula continue to be at schools around the world. With the Changemaker Curriculum, we’ve taken a page out of Sir Ken Robinson’s playbook and done away...

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...

Last month, during our UK weXplore, I took fourteen students to get fitted for kilts at the Highland House of Fraser in Inverness, Scotland. I must say, each time I plan an activity involving traditional dress I get a mixed bag of looks and reactions from my colleagues and students on whether donning cultural dress is acceptable or disrespectful.
