Sustainable Development Goals
At Olympus we believe as educators we have a responsibility to teach our learners about the world around them. As part of our Local to Global element of our Curious Curriculum, we have signed up to help deliver on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Throughout curriculum we have linked our enquiry themes with these big global issues and allow learners to explore the ideas, concepts, issues and reality regarding these goals.
To support us to do this we have trained staff in each of our schools with Lyfta, an organisation partnered with the British Council. So what is Lyfta... well, Lyfta is an electronic platform and:
We use Lyfta to help provide learners with interactive, real life scenarios from around the world of families, children and adults all telling their stories. As we know stories are an excellent way for us to learn about issues, particularly ones that are complex and geographically removed.
