So, what does international mindedness mean?
It is the ability to see ourselves as responsible citizens of the world based on the understanding that the world is bigger than the community in which we live. It’s about making connections with others and better preparing ourselves for 21st century challenges.
At ISP we build a foundation for learning based on these understandings. To be open-minded enough to explore issues in the world from both sides of an argument, prepares children to listen to each other, be willing to accept difference and develop empathy for different people in different situations.
In Sicily, hidden in the heart of Palermo, Sicilian kids grow internationally. Their minds are stimulated to question the impossible and aspire to make amazing changes. Challenges are seen merely as obstacles to overcome. Inquiry is a vessel that we climb aboard, leave no stone unturned and explore every aspect until we reach our destination. The view is beautiful, so come and see it for yourself!
