The College’s VCE students from China attend classes in Melbourne.
Learning isn’t isolated to the four walls of the classroom and preparing students to take their place optimistically in a globalised world requires thinking beyond the box. The College recently welcomed our VCE students from China, during which they attended classes with their Thomas Carr College host student. These real-world experiences to live and study alongside students from other parts of the world help to develop well-rounded students and encourages them to take up their place as active and informed citizens of the world.
The aim of the visits helps students to understand
- Understand the interdependence of the global community.
- Build emotional intelligence
- Learn to suspend judgment and be flexible in new and different cultural contexts.
- Apply effective strategies to deal with ambiguous situations.
- Communicate and collaborate more effectively and appropriately with people from different backgrounds, cultures, and identities.
Well done to all the VCE students and Year 8 Chinese Language class who hosted and were wonderful ambassadors.
