International Certification School Feedback

The International Certification process was an effective and real


process for us. It avoided simply following a tick the boxes
approach and was not bureaucratic. The most important part of the
process for us was to think about exactly what space we wanted to be
in, and developing a clear definition of what Global Citizenship meant
at Ivanhoe was critical to this process. If we did not know what we
wanted to achieve, how could we achieve it? As we anticipated,
International Certification highlighted some areas we need to improve
on and in particular in ensuring Global Citizenship is part of the DNA
of an Ivanhoe education and does not occur by happenstance.
