Shahad in D1 (above) recently attended the Global Peace Summit Dubai 2022: The aim of the Global Peace Summit Dubai 2022 is to bring prospective youths from all around the world to discuss the importance of Peace Education, countering extreme violence, Global Citizenship, Peace Petition Signatory Campaign, Youth Development and to provide a dynamic platform to excel their leadership traits with the engagement of international communities & world leaders and to share their thoughts on “Peace by Dialogue” concept. During the conference, participants from different countries presented peace-related projects that they implemented in their societies. The conference included debates through which the conflicts between different countries such as Ukraine and Russia, Palestine and Israel, as well as Armenia and Azerbaijan were discussed.
The last couple of weeks have been busy with D1 students brainstorming possible topics of research within the subject of their choice for their Extended Essay, and working on formulating an adequate research question. They have also formally started their active university search and application process with a presentation by Mr Kieron White on the various tests for university entry (SAT, ACT, English proficiency tests…). The list is available on https://www.uwcea.org/tests/.
In the meantime, the D2 students put the last touches to their TOK essay and Extended Essay before submitting to the IB. They must now focus on completing the rest of their internal assessments and they are expected to spend the Easter break revising for their IB exams. Please see the schedule of the May 2022 session.
