"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." - Aristotle
The Global Programs at RSGC challenge our students to value differences and similarities among people both in our own community, as well as those in the world around us. These programs allow students in grades 7 through 12 to choose from a selection of experiences that focus on developing caring, cooperative, responsible and engaged global citizens. Students who participate in these global experiences will gain the knowledge, skills and mind-set; to understand the inter-connectedness between local actions and global outcomes.
Through local, national and international hands-on experiences, students become aware of their role in the global village while developing a sensitivity to the needs of others. In doing so, they will be empowered to make choices that are environmentally sound, economically sustainable and socially just.
We are no longer solely Canadian citizens but also Global citizens and as such, our knowledge of global issues as well as our participation on the global stage is essential.
