Learning Worldwise to Graduate Worldwise

In just a few weeks time Dulwich Puxi’s Head of College, Mr David Ingram will be travelling to Africa to meet with heads, principals and students in schools across Cameroon and Ghana. Mr Ingram together with members from Dulwich International University Counselling team will be visiting schools like the globally acclaimed STEM school, The African Science Academy. ASA is a girls-only Advanced Level school for maths and science and educates Africa’s most gifted young scientists. The purpose of this research trip is to explore and develop relationships with schools in foreign countries, and link students from those schools to Dulwich students so that together they can participate in high level, virtual learning opportunities. At Dulwich College Puxi, we have the inspirational CoLABorate space – a research facility where our primary and senior students currently go on a regular basis to discuss and research big ideas, and prepare thoughtful presentations together. Our plan for the future is that Dulwich Puxi students might connect with classrooms in Africa and share such learning opportunities together. In doing this, we are giving our students the opportunity to engage with students from other cultural backgrounds, to learn from each other, and make important connections. This is one example of what we call learning worldwise.
