Who we are

The Global Classroom Partnership is an international initiative begun in the Shetland Islands over 25 years ago. Students from participating schools research and prepare assigned tasks on a set theme to present to the conference. The emphasis is on sharing learning between schools, with the ethos that students can ‘learn locally but think globally’.
This is the website for the 2022 Global Classroom Conference, which is hosted by the Australian partner: University of Canberra Senior Secondary College Lake Ginninderra.
This website is managed by the students and staff of the College. See About for more details.
