The Microsoft Global Learning Connection is an annual virtual event that brings together students from all over the world in a variety of online activities designed to build as many global links, and accumulate as many virtual miles, as possible in just 48 hours. The students participate in video calls that feature cultural presentations, dance and poetry performances, and general Q&A. The event reinforces the trust’s mission to encourage curiosity and appreciation of diversity.
A new partnership has been confirmed with Birka Jato school in Ethiopia. As this partnership grows the children will be able to communicate with the school via letters. Teachers will also have the chance to visit the school and bring back with them the learnings and culture from the school and teach them to the children here at WCPS.
