International Schools Award

Thornleigh is part of an international organisation of Salesian schools in over 130 countries all over the world and on a daily basis Salesian staff are face to face with over 15 million students under the age of 16.

Staff and students endeavour to deliver the key message of our Salesian ethos and the curriculum within an international context and this fosters an understanding of the cultures, geography and environment, character and concerns, languages, religions, and economic circumstances of people elsewhere in the world and around our locality. Not only have we continued to embed key ideas of Global Learning throughout all areas of the curriculum, within subject areas, the whole school tutorial programme, SMSC and the Student Council, we have further developed our links with Salesian schools at home and abroad in Tanzania, Spain, Italy and Finland, via e-mail, post, video conferencing, visiting international staff.

By developing these partnerships, it has allowed our students to nurture their personal and spiritual lives and foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of the global cultures around them. Following our Intermediate International Schools Award, our aim, through various projects, is to continue to enable young people to become successful learners and confident individuals by offering real and relevant learning experiences. To aim to inspire them to become responsible citizens who are prepared for life in a global society and work in a global economy.
