Shaping the world
Children entering education today will graduate as young adults in 2030.Our mission is to prepare them for jobs that have not yet been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, and to teach them how to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated. We must encourage our young people to embrace and shape their own futures and to understand that they form part of a global community and are capable of shaping the world.
At Agora Portals International School, as a Globeducate school, we are committed to the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. As part of this commitment, we have entered into partnerships with international organisations such as the Eco-schools Project and WWF (World Wildlife Fund), participating in global schools' projects that involve students, teachers and parents, and bringing together a worldwide community of more than 100,000 people.
In addition to these agreements with prestigious organisations, Globeducate organises international events every year, bringing together students from all over the world from the group's different schools. Students share their knowledge in an atmosphere of healthy competition and exchange their projects and solutions. These events include sporting, academic, musical and artistic competitions, as well as meetings to develop leadership and public speaking skills or United Nations simulations in which pupils represent delegates from different countries and debate global problems in English.
Agora Portals International School works on this commitment at an international and local level. At an international level, in addition to the aforementioned agreements and its membership of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), the school also forms part of the International Schools Association (ISA), the oldest international education organisation in the world. At a local level, the school is a member of other associations such as CICAE (of which the headmaster, Rafael Barea, is a member of the board of directors). In addition, the students collaborate in different local solidarity initiatives, working with NGOs such as Respiralia, ASNIMO, ASPACE, the Handisport Foundation, the Natzaret Foundation, Caritas and the Mallorca Food Bank, among others.
The aim of this agenda is to educate students committed to the world and to the great challenges of our time. Students with a wide range of skills and human responsibilities that go beyond academic success. Through multilingualism and internationalism, our students become aware of their world and learn to appreciate other cultures and points of view. An education based on values such as commitment, empathy, respect and responsibility so that our students contribute to building a better world through mutual understanding and intercultural respect.
