This initiative is crafted and dedicated to nurturing both internal and global peace among the younger generations, endeavours to achieve this ambitious goal. Through a series of interactive and thought-provoking workshops tailored for Grade 5 students, their Grade 12 peers tackled the pressing issue of racism, aiming to equip the young students’ minds with the knowledge and tools they need to become advocates for the cause of anti-racism.
Vienna International School is moving forward to build a stronger school community through efforts to become a more diverse, equitable and inclusive school for all students, educators, and families. The goal is to embed these values within our own organization and institutionalize them within the school culture and to instil a profound sense of inclusivity and respect within our students. We aspire to contribute to the creation of a world where diversity is not only acknowledged but celebrated, and where equality stands as the cornerstone of society.
In the words of Kokone Shimamura and Ian Campbell, two of the visionary students spearheading this initiative, "We believe that our efforts today will ripple into a tomorrow where discrimination has no place, and unity prevails."
