“Uniting Pakistan in Learning”
Pakistan gathered to celebrate their success in this year’s World Education Games which was organised at Sukh Cha’n, Lahore. It was a great experience watching all the winners from Pakistan unite to celebrate their achievements. We are thankful to our Chief Guests for making it a notable event.
Hope you all had a fun time during the World Education Games! I know I sure did! I’m here again just to sum up everything that has happened over the last three days at Vanscoy School.
As we all know, the first day of the World Education Games was World Literacy Day. That was a great event because it was so much fun to simply fit the appropriate words into the sentences. But my favourite part (obviously) was the next day – World Math Day.
At our school we had a competition to see which class would win and we worked really hard because the prize was a day of swimming. I love swimming (and math) so I played and our Grade 8 class won!! The last day of WEG was World Science Day which was also really fun for me because I know my science and I just breezed through the questions.
I can’t wait to see who will be going to Sydney, Australia and whoever it is, I say kudos to you for giving it your all out effort! Well, that is pretty much it from Vanscoy, Saskatchewan, folks!! Thanks for reading!
Hello and greetings to all, from the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E).
I am Zeena Zahidah, the U.A.E Ambassador for the UNICEF World Education Games. At my school, (Victoria International School of Sharjah – VISS) I am, with the help of my friends (Latifa, Anastasiya, Noor, Kris and Annanya) encouraging all students in the Senior and Primary sections of the school to participate in the World Education Games and fundraise and donate to the UNICEF School-In-A-Box project. As part of this I spoke to the school assembly last week and have put information in this week’s newsletter.
The School-In-A-Box project is a wonderful program that is run by UNICEF which provides education materials for children around the world less fortunate than us at VISS. In my role as the UAE Ambassador for WEG I encourage all students, not just the U.A.E. but throughout the whole Middle-East, to get their school involved and to raise money for UNICEF.
The excitement as the Games approach is building. Students are downloading the apps and doing the warm up activities. Already quite a bit of money has been donated for UNICEF. So get involved and help the World Education Games be successful in its official Guinness Book of Records challenges (that is to be the world’s largest online Literacy, Science and Math competitions) and also help UNICEF to help children around the world.
My name is Toktam Movassagh, proud student of Ridgeview Elementary School, and I am the World Education Games Ambassador representing British Columbia.
I am honoured to have been chosen for this position and am very excited to participate in the World Education Games for the first time! I am thrilled to be meeting my fellow Ambassadors and encouraging students to join and help us beat the world record.
Some of my responsibilities as an Ambassador are writing letters to publicize the event, crafting blogs and encouraging participation! Just this week, I have heard from the Mayor of West Vancouver and the Superintendent of School District 45 who will be visiting our school over the course of the games.
This is also the first year for my school, Ridgeview Elementary, to be participating in the World Education Games and our students are excited. Classes are in training sessions, giving daily updates and are working towards prizes! Less than one month to go!
I’m Kriya and I’m ten years old. I am from India, now living in the Netherlands and a participant from Europe.
I’m proud to be a Senior Correspondents for the World Education Games (WEG). Our school De Blijberg has been selected as a Reporter School for WEG.
Our tasks are to report on the events connected to the World Education Games in the Dutch International schools (DIPS).
GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
Hi everyone! I’m Theresia from Singapore.
I’m here to share my story on participating in this event and also some little tips on how to do better:)
This year is my fourth year of World Education Games, which formerly consisted of World Maths Day only. From my experience of participating in this competition in the past years, I have concluded that you must do two things if you want to do well … practise and learn from past experience!
Experience is the best teacher.
Three years ago when I first participated in the World Maths Day 2010, I only used the numbers in my laptop keyboard to type in the answers. I had no idea that it is much faster to key in the answers by using a number pad than keyboard until I saw a video of Kaya G. playing the World Maths Day.
Practise makes perfect.
Last year, I made a promise to myself that I would practise every single day without fail for this year’s event. Might sound a bit ambitious, but I really feel that the frequency of practice plays a very important role in doing well. I’m a bit busy with homework, tests, exams, and band at school, but I still try my best to play 5 games per day for each level of Maths and Spelling, and 5 games in total daily for Science.
All the best!
I can’t wait for the World Education Games to start. I’ve really had fun doing it throughout the years and get a rush of excitement whenever our teachers hand out the slip with our usernames and passwords. I think our school has been doing this since I was I in second grade (just so you know that is 4 years).
I’ve always loved when I’m sitting next to a friend in class, to start the 3…..2……1……Now! Then clicking at the same time, hoping we were competing against each other. My best friend hates math. But she really likes World Math Day and I always like trying to compete against her. And sometimes we do. Then if either of us struck out, that person would go over and watch the other play and try to cheer them on.
I also love the feeling you get when you see your name on the Hall of Fame. And now I see everyone typing at the speed of light and synchronized clicking across the classroom, getting ready for an amazing event that is fun and exciting. Good luck everyone… it’s great fun!
I am twelve years old and in grade seven. I am a World Education Games Ambassador representing Canada and home educated children. I have been having a great time getting ready for the Games!!
I encourage all of you to work hard to get your name up in the Hall of Fame for at least one day during the month of February!! (Hint Hint – pick your favorite subject first – Math, Literacy or Science)
Did you know you can even print that page and show your classmates and encourage them to do the same!!
Taking the role as a World Education Games Ambassador so far has been fantastic! Life has been exciting from promoting the World Education Games in various types of interviews, writing different people of influence, to simply talking with students from different schools. I’m representing the World Education Games and Canada with pride and honor.
The past 2 days have been really great! I met the other 5 Canadian Ambassadors, along with their chaperones, the staff of 3P Learning, and two really inspiring speakers. The whole experience so far has been really awesome and the games haven’t even started.
So, I hope all of you who are reading this are registered and are taking advantage of the practice runs that have been put on the site just for you! Happy World Education Games
We have been riding in limos, eating at 5-star restaraunts and sleeping at the best hotel in Calgary. Meeting Paul and the other Canadian Ambassadors has been awesome. I have made some new friends and have met other awesome people such as the first person to climb Mount Everest, and a professor that almost lost his life jumping off a cliff into water.
We have already recieved a certificate for being World Education Games Ambassadors.
I think that we have already recieved a once in a lifetime experience that I will charish forever.
