Globeducate British International Schools Rituals and Traditions
At Globeducate British International Schools we understand the importance of marking key dates in the year, whether that be an academic milestone, or a cultural celebration.
In addition, we cultivate a sense of community in our schools through regular assemblies and we celebrate success with graduation ceremonies. Visual displays around the schools show the projects and topics that each age group is working on and this visibility and showcasing in the school community encourages our students to be proud of their work. We encourage teamwork and collaboration through the British ‘House’ system.
