Planning your term 3 activities over the break? These prizes from the UNAA WA Global Citizenship Schools Program are an excellent way to incorporate global competency building citizenship and sustainability projects into your Semester 2 classes.
The Global Goals challenge is a great way to transform your students’ big ideas into plans of action to transform our world.
Students are challenged to:
EMPATHISE: connect with Sustainable Development issues in their own context; explore and articulate real world problems;
INNOVATE: imagine, create, and work through design solutions;
ORGANISE: communicate, collaborate, set goals and organise plans of action;
IMPLEMENT their plans and have an IMPACT!
Planning and Reporting Templates are available online at https://www.unaa.org.au/divisions/western-australia/wa-programs-for-schools/wa-global-goals-challenge/
Now is the perfect time to encourage students from Years 4 to 12 to prepare an entry for the annual Yolande Frank Art Awards (see attachment). There are four good reasons.
CRITICAL and CREATIVE THINKING
Perfect vehicle for developing the Critical and Creative Thinking General Capability
VISUAL COMMUNICATION DESIGN PROCESS
Design thinking and visual communication skills are high-demand in the Gig Economy.
Ideal for students interested in an extension activity for the July holidays. They just need to keep a journal of their design process to enable school verification.
PUBLIC EXPOSURE of STUDENT WORK
2018 is the 70th Anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We are currently negotiating to publish images of selected student works in celebrations and calendars to raise funds to sustain these Awards. We plan to invite all finalists to our Peace Day celebrations on 23rd September and to involve participants in selecting winners for the WE the PEOPLE Award (People’s Choice).
