During a recent place- and project-based excursion to Kochi, India, our Grade 12 students spent five days learning Bollywood techniques and style in order to produce a full trailer for a fictitious Bollywood film, Prem/Hate (Love/Hate). During the project, students visited Bollywood film studios, met with Bollywood gurus, received dance lessons, practiced acting, and examined styles of scripts and musical scores, eventually incorporating all of these elements into the ten-minute...

Even though it’s been only three years, my THINK Global School (TGS) graduation feels like a lifetime ago. I had never cried as much as I cried the day I left TGS, and I haven’t cried as much since. I knew that my life was about to change drastically. I knew that I was about to face more independence than I had ever known before, that I’d be spending less...

I often catch myself thinking: ''None of this is real.'' It becomes a mantra. A heuristic of sorts. I'm in my second phase of culture shock; having gotten used to much of Arabic society, I must now learn to appreciate this uncanny familiarity. I've been living in Morocco now for over a month, after living abroad in several countries with THINK Global School. Traveling has become so familiar to me...

Coming to Fez, everyone tells you that it will smell, but you don’t realize how much until you get here. While walking up the tannery stairs, you feel your posture change, you try to block out the intense smell coming from the outside. You bring the top of your shirt in front of your nose and mouth, your facial expression changing to one of disgust. You bring in your head...

Morocco is an exquisite place where ancient traditions still reign. Also, Morocco is unlike any of the recent places that I have been since the medina and even the air itself are entirely different. One of the many unique things inside the medina are its arches. You may not even notice it, but when you look up from time to time, you will notice tiny details that you hadn't before. Another...

t’s been a week since I arrived in Rabat, yet so many things have already happened. We were invited to a traditional Moroccan dinner with dancing and singing, and some of us went for trips to the library or to the shore. Grade 10 had a scavenger hunt in Medina which included collecting pictures of cats, looking for tourists, and bargaining (even though my French is limited to ordering “café...

When I first learned half a year ago that I would be hiking the Inca Trail, there were no words to describe my feeling of ecstasy. Not only were we going to one of the world's seven modern wonders, but we were also being given the opportunity to complete a five-day variation of the Inca Trail -- possibly a life-altering experience. From that point on the news stuck with me,...

South America is home to many spectacular sights, both natural and manmade, but few -if any- capture the imagination and test the limits of visitors like Peru’s Machu Picchu. After taking part in the Inca Trek this fall, 11th grader Amy E. assessed her own experiences and compiled the following pieces of advice for anyone else planning on undertaking the hike of a lifetime. 1. Do not hike the Inca Trail...

The last minute packing of hopes and dreams and clean socks into a suitcase that threatened to spill over twenty three kilos wasn’t a new experience. I’d crammed enough times to know that I did not need four pairs of black jeans, but that I did need my birkenstocks. Because you learn that it doesn’t matter how Nico looks at you when you wear ‘socks and stocks’ - it’s your...

While in Peru, Breanna Reynolds' humanities students selected a SPEED (social, political, environmental, economic, or demographic) factor to study in depth. In looking at the environmental factors Peruvians face, 10th grader Harry W wrote the short story "The Tree," which exposes deforestation and is told from the narrative view of a tree itself. Decades of existence within the woods enlightened me to treat every living form as one amongst us,...

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...
