The Global School Alliance were delighted to welcome visitors Rob Ford, CEO and Director at Heritage International School Moldova, and Anna Azarova, Communications Lead at The British International School of Ukraine, to Liverpool as part of an ongoing project between BISU and Liverpool Life Sciences UTC.

In April 2023, The British International School of Ukraine and Liverpool Life Sciences UTC collaborated on a music project to commemorate the Eurovision Song Contest being held in Liverpool. The two schools created a powerful video message of togetherness, hope and solidarity.

John Rolfe, Community & Partnerships Manager at the Global School Alliance said:

“All of us at the Global School Alliance are proud and delighted to be working with the wonderful Sara Mallo and Anna Azarova on their innovative partnership between Liverpool Life Sciences UTC and the British International School Ukraine.

We had an inspiring day with them along with the great GSA Ambassador, Robert Ford, learning more about their future plans that we are looking forward to support and celebrate.

Global educators are the most important people in the world and we thank you all for your brilliant commitment and support to bring the world into classrooms everywhere.

We celebrate our 5th birthday this year; five years of sharing and celebrating impactful global communication and collaboration and we are always proud to work with, and to learn from, globally minded educators and look forward to working with you and your school to develop your own exciting global journey.”

Anna Azarova, Communications Lead at The British International School Ukraine said:

“Upon arrival, I received an immensely warm welcome and was treated to a guided tour of the school – a gem housed in a restored Victorian-era warehouse with its unique atmosphere, awesome facilities, charismatic industrial style and innovative model of learning.

I said, as educators, our mission transcends challenges. We are dedicated to supporting the children in Ukraine, fostering their growth, and contributing to the development of our next generation by providing access to quality education.

We are grateful to Global School Alliance for facilitating these powerful ties and meaningful joint projects worldwide and excited about the positive impact we can create together! Thanks to your tremendous effort and these partnerships, our students in Ukraine not only feel connected to the global community but also to a community of young individuals empowered to make a better tomorrow for all of us.”

Rob Ford, CEO & Director at Heritage International School Moldova said:

“Thank you Global School Alliance and Anna for a wonderful day in the global city of Liverpool. Our hosts Liverpool Life Sciences UTC showed us an impressive and inspirational model of modern learning as we made plans for further cooperation & to celebrate GSA’s 5th birthday.”

Sara Mallo Juarez, Spanish Teacher at Liverpool Life Sciences said:

“I’m delighted to be part of the project with the British International School, Ukraine and the Global School Alliance. It’s so important to collaborate internationally and create global citizens, open their minds to new horizons, new cultures, new languages, and learn skills that transcend borders.”
