Global Citizenship at our College

How do we practise Global Citizenship?

From commemorating important international days through engaging and insightful class activities, to receiving training as responsible citizens, our College strives to incorporate a global dimension into the curriculum and formation of all our students.

A look at Global Citizenship and Togetherness by Mr Lionel Chircop (Assistant Head - Sixth Form)

Libraries and ecological stewardship constantly remind me that we are global citizens and the earth is our common home. The wisdom of authors from different cultures, alive on our library shelves, explores common themes from different perspectives and through different mindsets, with the hope of providing solutions for the puzzling problems inflicting humanity. But common problems call for common actions. Togetherness is the way forward on the one earth we inhabit. This ‘togetherness’ is the central inspiration animating the Green Team and the Global Citizenship programme at our Sixth Form.

Togetherness dreams of a better common future and makes it happen.

Togetherness changes our individuality into interdependence.

Togetherness makes of one tree, a forest and of one drop, an ocean.

Togetherness transforms us into an electrified network of relationships that transmits hope everywhere.

Togetherness makes of solitary rangers a communal adventure that multiplies our efforts and alleviates our fatigue and exhaustion.

Togetherness shares our baggage and eases our anxiety to reach new destinations otherwise secluded and out of reach.

Togetherness unites us while setting us free.

Togetherness makes of our responsibities a joyful task.

Togetherness changes all of us into hopeful and joyful green global citizens.

“ We have enormous capacity to awaken hope in our world, contributing to the formation of men and women who are just, true global citizens. ”
