A chain of schools which has partnered with an American varsity, sent their students to a three-week summer camp, according to a press release.
Four students from Roots International Schools (RIS) were selected to represent Pakistan in the Global Leadership Camp at Valparaiso University, USA, this year. The programme at Valparaiso University emphasises a holistic approach to learning about what it means to be a college student by immersing each student in university culture.
The Summer Global Leadership Institute is an opportunity for high school students to help young leaders develop the skills necessary to address the challenges posed by the twenty-first century.
The programme offered various academic tracks that allowed students to focus on gaining knowledge in their field of interest.
The tracks offered included Engineering, Environmental Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and The World of Medicine, Multimedia in the 21st century.
Students were involved in activities which gave them an insight into the 21st century learning paradigms.
The camp sponsored a Cultural Night and RIS students presented a colourful display of Pakistani culture at the Cultural Night. An award ceremony was arranged in which RIS students were recognised for their performance.
