At this point in time, I think I pretty much owe my entire life to Joann McPike. Not only did she start up TGS, which has changed my life forever, but she was able to get me in to a New Zealand All Blacks game! Not even just an All Blacks game, but the final of the Rugby Championship versus Argentina's national team Los Pumas at La Plata.   Being...

AT ONE POINT IN MY CHILDHOOD, I wanted to be a dolphin. With the recent popularity of places such as SeaWorld, I had constantly seen them blasted around TV, and I thought they were majestic. Little did I know, however, that these places which looked so magical to me in my childhood, were the source of so much destruction to dolphins. Ric O’Barry, perhaps the world’s most well known dolphin...

MUSEUMS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD pay tribute to our ancestors through grandiose oil paintings and intricate family trees replete with branches. Barring a handful of exceptions, every member of our global society can trace their genealogy back at least one generation, and often times many more.

With only a little bit of flour, cornflakes, condensed milk, chocolate, oatmeal, apple, and honey, Hannah, Alice, and Maya, three of TGS's most talented bakers, whipped up amazing delicacies.

LIFE AT THINK GLOBAL SCHOOL CAN BE HECTIC, with students balancing classes, exercise, socializing, and many more activities into each day.

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...

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...

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...
