Students discussed international relations and politics in the Global Politics Club throughout Term 1.
The Global Politics Club serves as a platform for students passionate in politics and things happening around the world to explore and gain knowledge on global issues, developing a deeper understanding and evaluation on these issues, whilst sharing their views with other club members and brainstorming ideas for potential solutions to make the world a better place.
The Island School Model Group of 20 was also hosted on the 16th November, club members stepped into the shoes of high-ranking officials from the world’s largest economies and international organisations. They worked with their peers to come up with creative solutions to achieve global prosperity through a common vision. Members developed a high level of knowledge on the theme of digital economies by investigating the diverse perspectives countries have on it.
