We are pleased to invite you to the eighth, St. Gilgen International School, Inspiring People Evening on the Thursday the 16th of November at 19h00.
‘StGIS Inspiring People = Inspiring people, inspiring people’
An education is not an education if it fails to prepare young people for the future. At St. Gilgen International School, we prepare our students for life, not only by teaching them reading, writing and arithmetic, but by helping them find their individual ‘path of excellence’. The path of excellence is a path that seeks growth; it is a path that interacts creatively and imaginatively with the world; it is a path that engages completely and courageously, yet responsibly and sustainably; it is a path that is ambitious and adventure seeking; it is a path of compassion, and of care for self, others and our world.
Our inspiring speaker is somebody who has embodies this 'path of excellence' and also somebody with a vision for the future that we can all share in.
