The ASPIRE Academy last week hosted its Aspire Global Citizenship Day, bringing more than 40 nations and their unique cultures under its roof. The event was organised to introduce student-athletes to cultural and ethnic diversity.
To mark the event, the academy were adorned with colours of different countries. Teachers shared unique aspects from their culture, including history, language, food and traditional games, and emphasised the similarities that exist across nations.
The academy’s efforts to organise the event stem from its belief in the role of educators as agents of social change, helping students gain perspective about their role as part of the global community.
