What Makes a Good Global Citizen

At Kuwait National English School, preparing students to be good global citizens is an important part of our schools guiding statements and curriculum and it is essential to instil in them the values and qualities that contribute to being a responsible member of the global community. The Primary assembly  held this week for KS1 and KS2 students aimed to educate and inspire young minds to understand their role in making the world a better place through acts of kindness, empathy, and respect for diversity.

The assembly began with a captivating introduction highlighting the importance of being a global citizen and how students can make a positive impact on the world by embracing global citizenship. Power Point Presentations included images, quotes, and key points that highlighted the values of compassion, tolerance, environmental stewardship, and cultural awareness. Songs and Poems added a creative touch to the assembly where students performed songs and recited poems that conveyed messages of unity, peace, and understanding. These artistic expressions resonated with the audience reinforcing the idea that small actions can lead to significant change on a global scale. Encouraging Posters with motivational quotes and colorful illustrations displayed during student presentations created an uplifting atmosphere. These posters served as visual reminders of the values associated with being a good global citizen and inspired students to embody these principles in their daily lives.

The assembly on “What makes a good Global Citizen” served as an opportunity for students to reflect on their roles in promoting positive change in the world. By fostering empathy, respect, and social responsibility, young learners are empowered to become active participants in creating a more inclusive and sustainable global community.
