Last week, the World Peace Game was won by our senior students. After 5 days playing the Game, together they solved 24 world crises and raised the asset value of each country…with a minute to spare!
It was timely to reflect upon the Top 10 Skills in the OECD Future of Jobs Report at a recent conference of Independent Primary School Heads. In 2020, they were listed as:
- Complex Problem Solving
- Critical Thinking
- People Management
- Coordinating with Others
- Emotional Intelligence
- Judgement and Decision Making
- Service Orientation
- Cognitive Flexibiltily
So much of what we do at Annesley is building these skills in our students. It is no more evident however than in the context of the World Peace Game, each of our students playing the Game this year engaged in each of these skills at various times throughout the 5 days.
Congratulations to the following students who were awarded the following prizes in the World Peace Game 2022, as voted by their peers:
