What’s Happening at Global Campus?
Pen Pals: Pen Pals connect with and learn more about students from other Nord Anglia Schools worldwide. This year, PYP 1 & 2 students at Oakridge International School Bengaluru met their counterparts from British International School Bratislava, Nord Anglia International School – Dubai, Nord Anglia International School – Hongkong, and Nord Anglia Education School – Colegio Menor Quito – Ecuador. This allowed Oakridgers to share and learn different ideas, views, and perspectives with their fellow mates from various Nord Anglia schools worldwide.
Language Exchange: Language Exchange pairs groups of NAE students who want to practice speaking a language they are learning with native speakers of that language. This activity is for students aged 11+ who can converse in their target language while making minimal mistakes. They will practice the spoken language of the culture, with all its informal expressions and slang – building confidence to communicate in that language in the real world. This year, Oakridge Bengaluru students enrolled for English, Spanish and French languages.
Coding: The Hour of Code is a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science. During the Hour of Code week in December, Oakridge students will participate in a shared coding challenge on Global Campus and attend an Expert Talk with a Software Engineer at Microsoft. There will then be monthly coding challenges from January 2024.
Global Sports Challenge: Oakridge International School embraced the GC challenge with fun runs, daily miles, and nature walks. Students of all ages were involved, and the stories they told on the Global Campus wall were of determination and perseverance. They narrated their joy after exercising and being in the fresh air.
