Global Citizenship in Online Education
We inspire our students to be global citizens
At Sophia High, we place huge importance on developing global citizenship and social responsibility, as our students connect with their peers from around the world and have the opportunity to learn from each other and about each other every day.
We are building a global community of learners within a safe, secure and happy online learning environment, where our students are inspired, challenged and supported in all they do. We aim to empower young minds to think creatively, develop independence, problem solve and to make connections with the world around them.
Our Four Dimensions of Learning has enabled us to pioneer a model of online education that provides our online school students with global citizenship and intercultural understanding for our sustainability and wellbeing (GCIU). Our ambitious online curriculum model provides a broad humanitarian scope for the delivery of our online focus on GCIU learning and ensures that our purpose, core values and directions and competencies we aspire for our students to develop, intersect. At Sophia High School, our groundbreaking Global Citizenship and Intercultural learning program provides knowledge, understanding skills valuable, nay essential for lifelong learning.
This is Education Reimagined.
Modelled on the richness of the best international approach to education, our school unlocks potential, nurtures talent and realises dreams, so that students exceed expectations. Above all our guiding principles ensure that our students are aware of their responsibilities as the learners of today and the leaders of tomorrow.

Promoting the UN Global Goals | Voices for Change through our groundbreaking curriculum model at Sophia High School
We are delighted to be joining the Council of International Schools and driving Global Citizenship through our teaching of the UN Global Goals through Fieldwork Educations IPC and IMYC curriculum programs.
As progressive educators, with a clear mandate to reimagine a new future for education, one of the greatest gifts we can give the future generation is the knowledge and wisdom to understand the mistakes we have made in the past and teach them the skills required to innovate and imagine new possibilities.
We need our children to grow from the learners of today to the leaders of tomorrow. This is our mandate at Sophia High School; to develop global citizens.
At Sophia High School, we are proud to be a supporter of the #UNGlobalGoals placing this mandate at the heart of our curriculum and acknowledging our role in shaping a new future.

Reducing inequalities Theme
Reducing inequalities and ensuring no one is left behind are integral to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
At Sophia High School we bring @theglobalgoals to life through our inspiring curriculum partnership with @fieldworkeducation.
This term our Senior students have been exploring the #IMYC focus unit of Community and the big idea that a shared sense of belonging occurs when people are able to negotiate and appreciate their complex often messy, differences. Central to this is developing and awareness and understanding of inequalities and how we can work together to reduce them.
Inequality within and among countries and within communities is a persistent cause for concern. Too much of the world’s wealth is held by a very small group of people. This often leads to financial and social discrimination.

Global Schools Program
Global Schools Program
The Global Schools Program is an initiative of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network in support of UNESCO’s Global Action Program on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). Global Schools develops the tools, resources and programs to support education systems around the world in shaping a more resilient and sustainable world. The vision of the program is to create a world where every primary and secondary school student is being equipped with the knowledge, values, and skills necessary for effectively responding to the greatest challenges of this century and shaping a sustainable and prosperous world for all.
Education for a better world
To change course, the world needs many more of its citizens, especially the next generation, to have the knowledge, values, and skills to better navigate this uncertain future, tackle its profound challenges, and build more prosperous and resilient communities. Research shows that Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is a crucial tool, which not only empowers students to shape a better world, but also perform better in school.
Challenges of the 21st century
The importance of devoting urgent attention to sustainable development is critical for the future of the planet and its people. According to scientists, climate change could threaten livelihoods, trigger conflicts, accelerate biodiversity loss, exacerbate disease outbreaks, destabilize political and social systems, cause economic shocks, and increase inequalities. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 ambitious objectives for a greener, healthier, more peaceful, and equal planet, agreed to by all governments, to be achieved by 2030.
