Voices from last years winning team:

‘Your world competition is really a useful and meaningful playground for children to not only express their thinking and English language abilities, but also develop other important skills such as teamwork, problem solving and video production.

I hope all the valuable lessons they have accumulated and learnt after the competition will be a premise for them to continue to shine and inspire other students in the school to show responsibilities to the society and become Global Citizens.
