What dreams and teams offers
  • A programme which uses sport and international
    links to develop young peoples leadership skills
    and cross cultural awareness.

    countries to explore issues such as fair play,
    equity, cultural diversity, inclusion, religion,
    ethics and global communication.

    Dreams Teams and this is achieved through

CEDAR MOUNT HIGH SCHOOL An Inclusive
International School

Pupil Voice
  • I feel welcome in Cedar Mount High School
    because our individual religions are truly
    respected and celebrated Sharam
  • Our school just comes together. We dont need to
    be brought together. We come together as one.
    Mahmuda

I have friends from many different countries
who have experienced education in many different
ways. They make me think differently about life
and opportunities. Taiwo
11
The inclusive nature of the school is excellent.
Yesterday I was talking to my friend from
Somalia. She told me about the horrible things
that had happened to her there and how her family
had been torn apart. It made me feel both guilty
and lucky to be here, and for what I have.

    Zealand, returning to us in January 2006 with
    primary and secondary links.

What do young people say about learning?
  • enjoy active lessons where they get involved a
    wider repertoire of approaches
  • We like to create, make, do, find out and
    dislike endless writing and theres not enough
    use of technology
  • think teachers who make sure they understand and
    give useful feedback and praise make a
    difference.
  • We need to know what a good one looks like.
  • welcome a challenge and not too much repetition.
  • Definitely not too easy but not too hard
  • recognise the importance of respect. They value
    an orderly, attractive school environment and the
    chance to work and socialise with friends.
  • We dont like bad attitudes in teachers or
    other pupils, dislike sarcasm and shouting, want
    more consistency across classes
  • want more choice, more practical life skills,
    more relevance and coherence.
