encouraging young people to become better global citizens
John Labor of the Arabian Pearl Gulf School, Bahrain got in touch with news of the programme in his school:
“The pandemic indeed disrupted our programme. Our collection of plastic bottles was not disposed of as intended. Children’s donations await delivery to charity. Projects are stalled. But safety and wellbeing of our participants remain paramount, so we are contented with our current accomplishment. We continue to encourage participants to pursue IGCA activities at home and we are happy to report that our younger ones engaged with the global issue with the #StoptheSpreadCampaign and with the guidance of their social studies teachers created inspiring cards that were sent to the patients and medical workers. Samples can be viewed through this link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Leayrs_zUMeX_wyFvcGzdAH7xt0....
Participants in high grades are writing their reflections, which we are waiting to determine their qualification for the awards.
We definitely have candidates for the awards for Bronze and Pre-Silver (we intend to propose this to recognize qualified achievers). But we plan to do the formal awarding when the school resumes, hopefully soon, in 2020, so we can do it in front of the school community with parents of the awardees, and perhaps with the local charity chosen by the awardees.
APG School wishes the other centres round the world safety and resiliency in this difficult time.”
