Global Education

 

​At Pimlico State High School, we are committed to ensuring that our students are not only well equipped as participants in the future workforce, but are prepared as citizens and leaders ready to make a positive and profound difference in the world.

In preparing our students as Global Citizens, we are enabling them to:

    • Have a deep understanding of world affairs and global issues and trends
    • Have an authentic appreciation and respect for social and cultural diversity
    • Be competitive and agile members of a global workforce
    • Communicate and collaborate confidently with others from diverse backgrounds and through new media and technologies
    • Generate innovative ideas and solutions to complex, interdisciplinary challenges and opportunities at the local, national and global leverl
    • Take responsible and purposeful action to create a more sustainable and just world
    • Provide visionary and practical leadership that engages and empowers others to respond purposefully to significant problems, challenges and opportunities

At Pimlico, we have drawn on a range of research-informed frameworks to develop an integrated and contextualised model of global education and its constituent competencies.  We conceptualise these global competencies as an inter-relationship of the knowledge, skills and dispositions that students apply in order to take action in the world.  Global education requires a considered and purposeful development of these competencies to enable students to become successful, active and engaged global citizens.

Pimlico's Global Studies Program provides a developmentally sequenced pathway of enrichment and extension across Years 7 to 12.  Entry to the program in Year 7 is by application.
