Dare to Become...a world leader!
The World Peace Game is a geo-political simulation game and is played over 5 days. In an engaging, ‘real life’ context, students are trusted to use their inherent wisdom to solve problems and are empowered to take positive action. It teaches young people about both failure and success and the power of humanity. They discover that working with others collaboratively is essential to survival and they learn to rely on each other to achieve success. Students are intentionally thrown into an environment of chaos and disruption but are given control to work with passion and use their critical and creative thinking skills to work for peace.
Through our partnership with the World Peace Game Foundation, global education expert John Hunter brought his World Peace Game to Annesley in 2019, the first time ever played in Australia. Since then, we have led our upper primary students through this once in a lifetime experience each year. The World Peace Game is now embedded into Annesley’s learning program, a key part of the Year 5 program of inquiry, in their Sharing the Planet Unit ‘Peaceful resolutions require mutual understanding.’
