World School International Forum 2017 - Brisbane, Australia 

We are looking forward to World School 2017, which will be held at St Paul’s School in Brisbane, Australia in October . Miss Laming and students Asha Root, Holly Siu and Ellie Brown will represent Invicta. The theme will be "The Futures of Food and Water".

This year marks a special anniversary in the history of World School. It is the 20th International Forum since it was founded by Kanto International School, Japan. Invicta is proud to have participated in every World School since its beginning in 1997.


World School International Forum 2016 – Tokyo, Japan

World school 2016 474 World school 2016 642

World school 2016 371 

After months of preparation and an eleven and a half hour flight, the World School 2016 Delegates finally arrived in Japan.  Evie, Michalina, Katie-Louise and Mrs Brewster were met at Narita Airport in Tokyo, by the welcoming committee from Kanto International School. 

The theme for World School Forum 2016 was “Food and Culture”. Students made presentations about their school, local area and discussed traditional and modern foods of their country. Each delegation has to comment on solutions to the modern food issue of convenience vs. health. When the Invicta students give their presentation, they were articulate, professional and had clearly done their research.

A variety of visits, cultural activities and hard work followed in the next two weeks. Michalina and Evie had the opportunity to take part in a traditional Mochitsuki preparation ceremony, bashing wet rice with wooden mallets! A chop stick lesson caused much excitement but the Invicta Girls had already been practising. Not a grain of rice was dropped! The group visited Asakusa Sensouji, one of the few areas in Tokyo left standing after WW2. It is a special place with temples, gardens and prayer spaces. A visit to the Tokyo Metropolitan Office was another highlight with speeches, lots of bowing and exchanges of presents. The students were particularly impressed with the visit to the Kikkoman Soy Sauce Factory.

The girls experienced a four day home stay, where they had the opportunity to live with a Japanese family and experience their food and life.  The girls also enjoyed the Kanto School Festival, where they were able to showcase, UK, Kent and Invicta. As the theme of the forum was “Food and Culture”, they had brought traditional foods such as Christmas Pudding, Christmas Cake, tea and shortbread. Edward, the Invicta World School mascot also put an appearance! It was interesting to talk to visitors about Invicta, traditional British foods and the Royal Family. Many believed that English people regularly had tea with the Queen!

On Performance Day, the girls were a little nervous as they took to the stage dressed in Union Jack leggings and T-shirts. Congratulations to Katie-Louise who choreographed the dance mash up of famous British pop songs from Queen through One Direction and The Beatles.

The last few days of World School saw the students splitting into groups to discuss convenience, heath and culture as related to “Food and Culture” based on months of research. The result was a number of “Calls to Action” which would bring solutions to the issues identified. The issues and solutions were endless and thought provoking as each student brought a different international perspective to the discussion.

After an emotional farewell dinner with speeches, presentations and promises to keep in touch, the UK delegates left for the airport, tired but happy that they had been excellent ambassadors for Invicta.

 


World School International Forum 2015 – Milan, Italy

On Monday, 19 October, Rosie Ebsworth, Claire Tipton and Erin Withey, travelled with Miss Coston to Italy to represent Invicta, and the United Kingdom, at the World School Forum 2016. Twenty other nationalities from as far Australia and the USA travelled to Busto Arsizio, just outside of Milan, to discuss the topic ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’, which was the same theme as Expo 2015 being held in the city centre.

Initially, we spent time at Lake Garda to get to know the other delegations, before travelling back to Busto to meet our host families and work in our partner school ITC Tosi. Part of the experience was a cultural performance, in which Rosie, Erin and Claire took the audience on a musical journey across the UK, singing songs made famous by English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish artists. Another element was booth day, where we shared our cultures with each other and the Italian public. We were very excited to welcome the students and staff from the Invicta World School delegation of 2014, Harriett, Summer, Zoe and Mrs Brewster, who had also travelled to Italy. Mrs Monika Hartwell, who instigated Invicta’s involvement in World School also visited us on this day.

Our delegation were split into three groups, each group conducting a ‘mock trial’ relating to the topic of the Forum; meat consumption, land grabbing and cosmetically perfect food.  Each side had a prosecution and defence, with a jury of experts ruling who won.

Although it was an exhausting 12 days, we were all really sad to leave. World School is an amazing and unique experience, where you have the opportunity to learn about so many cultures and, indeed, to learn more about your own. Invicta Grammar School are looking forward to the World School Forum 2016, which will be held in Tokyo, Japan on the topic of ‘Food and Culture’.

Well done to Rosie, Erin, Claire and Miss Coston for representing Invicta on the World Stage and for being true ambassadors for the school.  


World School International Forum – Vladivostok, Russia, 2014

 World School 2014   World School 2014 (637)

The Invicta Grammar School delegation to the World School International Forum 2014, have returned safely back to school after their visit to Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU,) Vladivostok in Russia.

Year 12 students: Zoe, Summer and Harriet with staff member Mrs Brewster, attended this prestigious event which had the theme: Environment: Clothing. Tradition and Innovation. They took part in workshops, seminars, performances, fashion shows and presentations based on this theme. The organisers had also arranged for cultural activities such a performance of a Russian Ballet, a Russian Cultural Festival and Russian folk dancing and singing. During the two week visit, the delegates had the opportunity to visit Vladivostok City and the Children’s Centre “Ocean” where elite Russian children attend for three weeks of the year. The students felt that one of the highlights of the visit was a four day homestay with a Russian family.

21 schools from countries such as Indonesia, Australia, Canada, Germany, India, Macau and France took part. The students have made lasting friendships, gained a better knowledge of their different cultures, become more tolerant of each other and have returned with a new viewpoint on the world. Together, they have broken down global boundaries and grown together to become part of the 2014 World School Family.

The delegation would like to thank the Russian World School Team and Kanto International School in Japan for all the organisation, planning and hard work that made this forum such a success. It was an experience that students and teachers will never forget. We now looking forward to World School 2015 which will be held in Milan in Italy.
