Welcome to the Global 2014 Website… we’re glad to have you! Global Perspectives is a five credit specialized program geared towards academic students in Barrie and surrounding area. Global Perspectives accepts passionate students of all different backgrounds and specialties in order to create a class with one common goal- to positively impact the global community. Students of Global Perspectives are given the chance to experience other cultures first hand, such as developing Cuba and developed Germany, through the countries best teachers- the youth.
The Global Perspectives program is an amazing experience that occurs both in and out of the classroom. The program revolves around learning about what is happening in the world around us and through that, students get the chance to discover what they can do about the issues that our world faces. We chose to take part in this tremendously challenging, highly rewarding, fascinating course because we care about the outcome of our planet and what we can do about it during our time on it. Not only was the travelling going to be awesome (and it has been so far), we all knew that the learning that would occur was going to be tough work, but also fascinating and a once in a chance lifetime to have our voices heard and be in such an environment that we could get a chance to discuss what we care about in the world. We all chose to take part in this course because we are bright young students looking for a chance to broaden our horizons and because we have a common interest in making the world a better place. We all knew that the Global program was going to be a spectacular time that could never be copied or compared to in our life and those of us who are in it took advantage of that and pushed ourselves to make sure that we were apart of such an experience. Our time in Global has definitely been unforgettable and the relationships and knowledge gained from it have definitely been exceptional. We are all definitely going to miss it when it’s over.
