1) Hi Liam, can you tell us what you’ve been up to since graduating THINK Global School?  I decided while in my senior year at TGS that I was not going to pursue a university education right out of the gate.

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.

I’m in the final year of my undergraduate law degree at King’s College London...

Recently our Changemaker Cohort 2 (CM2) students completed their term in Panama, one of Latin America’s most strategically important countries. The visit marked our first term in Panama (we’ve visited its neighbor Costa Rica twice) and given the positive reception it received from students, it certainly shouldn’t be our last. Long a crossroads for culture and business due to the canal that runs through it, Panama made perfect sense as...

A key consideration to understanding core values at THINK Global School is our belief that they are not...

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...

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.
