Purpose Statement

The Global Alliance for Innovative Learning (GAIL) is a progressive confederation of eight schools that are geographically dispersed and espouse and practise comparable educational principles and ideals. All members of GAIL are forward-thinking, independent, co-educational schools. Each school is committed to developing informed, globally active learning communities that encourage contemporary solutions to international issues through collaboration, inquiry and service-learning initiatives. The Global Alliance is committed to building genuine connections based on authentic engagement, meaningful relationships, co-operation and trust. Implicit in this is the belief that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

GAIL is an international framework that encourages student exchanges, staff research fellowships and the opportunity to collaborate through the undertaking of purposeful service-learning projects on a global scale. The creation of intellectual property through interaction will permit all members of GAIL to enhance their own practice, while also providing a forum to inform and influence the practice of others. It is when we rub shoulders and engage authentically with those from other countries, cultures and backgrounds that we truly learn and discover the common humanity that transcends our differences.
