What is the World's Best School Prize?
The World's Best School Prizes identify and celebrate schools' leading and innovative practices that have impacted the lives of their students and their community. The categories for the prize include Environmental Action, Community Collaboration, Innovation, Overcoming Adversity, and Supporting Healthy Lives.
This year we are thrilled that Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong and Green School Bali have both been shortlisted as Top 10 in the Supporting Healthy Lives category and in the Environmental Action category respectively. At EiM, we aspire to create learning spaces and curriculums that prioritise student and staff wellbeing while ensuring sustainability is embedded across all schools so this recognition is incredibly meaningful.
Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong
Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong (DCSPD) has been shortlisted for Supporting Healthy Lives – a prize recognising schools that provide access, relevance, and opportunities for students, staff, and the community to develop healthy habits, behaviours, knowledge, and skills. At Dulwich, we aim to create a community that can support both our students and staff to thrive and are excited to see our efforts recognised.
"We are thrilled to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award. This recognition is important to our community as health and wellbeing are at the heart of all that we do. The community has worked tirelessly together over the last four years to develop the College-wide, multi-faceted, inclusive Wellbeing Programme we have today." - Caroline Taylor, Head of College
DCSPD has also been invited to deliver a keynote session during World Education Week this October, and are very much looking forward to sharing our experience while hearing from others at the forefront of the education space.
Green School Bali
Green School Bali (GSB) has been shortlisted in the Top 10 for Environmental Action. Inspired and guided by the United Nations' Sustainable Development goals and Permaculture Principles, we design our class and curriculum from the lens of a greener world to foster our students to be real changemakers that champion the cause of sustainability and environmental protection around the world.
"At Green School Bali we weave environmental responsibility and stewardship into our curriculum and campus," says Head of School, Sal Gordon."Our community shares a strong belief that this isn't just the right thing to do, it's essential if we're going to prepare our children for a future defined by environmental and societal challenges. Our nomination in the environmental action category further cements this belief, and we're honoured to share the recognition with other schools around the world taking important steps to educate for sustainability."
Congratulations to both DCSPD and GSB! We hope this recognition inspires all members of our group to continue their efforts towards making wellbeing and sustainability goals come to life. This is an exciting journey with many more milestones to come!
