World School delegates prepare to depart for Japan
We received a record number of applications for this year’s World School International Forum, which will be held in next week in Japan. Year 12 students Evie Horner, Michalina Michalska and Katie-Louise Mason will represent Invicta at this prestigious event, accompanied by staff member Mrs Brewster.
The students have been working hard researching and preparing presentations on the theme of “Food and Culture”. They have prepared scrapbooks to present to their home stay families and a dance performance of British pop songs which will be filmed for Japanese TV! We were delighted to welcome back past World School students and staff who gave the girls advice and good luck messages. At the last minute, they received a request to speak on the subject of British ghosts, as they will be in Japan during Halloween!
Now all that is left to do is pack and leave for Toyko. Do join us in wishing the delegates good luck. We are sure they will be fantastic ambassadors for Invicta. Please do watch their progress via the news section of our website. www.invicta.viat.org.uk
Invicta is the only school in UK to participate in the forum and has been part of World School since its inception. We are proud of this long association. The World School was initiated in 1997 by Masaki Matsudaira, the former Chairman and present advisor to the board of trustees of Kanto International School, which is located in Tokyo, Japan.
The aim of World School is to create a truly border less entity that will bring together high school students and teachers from all areas of the world, for the purpose of helping students to adopt a global perspective, through accepting international standards. World School hopes that this will increase opportunities for students, deepen international awareness so that they become ambassadors of peace and friendship.
