Being a Global Citizen – A Moral Responsibility

Citizenship is a concept which strikes a balance between the benefits and responsibilities a human has within society.

This year has seen us launch our biggest project to date: www., a platform exclusive to our AISB Alumni.
I urge all Alumni to join and use our unique community to reconnect and nd new opportunities.


Association elections have been held and we now have a new Alumni Executive Board. Furthermore, we currently have 31 World Wide Delegates covering all continents; in essence, AISB Alumni Ambassadors. No matter where you are on this planet you will be able to contact a person connected to the AISB Alumni Association. Please consult the Meet the Team piece on page 10 for more information. Our Association is now global and we thank you all for volunteering to be Delegates.


Our social media communication has improved dramatically with regular posts and up to date information. We also manage to publish pictures with mini AISB Reunions around the world. Together with a number of alumni visits, we have hosted the following events at AISB over the most recent academic year:

  • University Search and Application seminar for Grade 11 students;

  • Letting Go seminar with Grade 12 parents;

  • Career Speed Networking day with Grade 10 students

  • The annual Senior Brunch.

The association also hosted a local reunion at LacertA Winery in Romania. The results and feedback from students, parents, teachers and alumni have been the best we have seen to date. Our purpose as an association is solidifying and maturing. 

Citizenship is a concept which strikes a balance between the benefits and responsibilities a human has within society. As AISB Alumni, we have grown in an environment where the individual is proud of their identity and heritage but at the same time respects and has consideration towards everyone else's.

This is what makes us global citizens. As such, we have the moral responsibility to better our world, and we choose to do so collectively. It is not by the acts of a single person, but by our mutual contribution, that value is created sustainably.
