Global Dignity Day
On this day, Young Global Leaders and other role models join thousands of volunteers to speak to youth in the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Their aim is to instil a new, positive, inclusive and interconnected sense of value in young people. This year Global Dignity Day was celebrated in 71 countries.
In De La Salle College, 9H enthusiastically participated in Global Dignity Day’s Live Webcast and Interactive Video Conference, which connected with seven schools in the USA.
The pupils defined respect in their own words and discussed how the “Dignity Principles” were incorporated into school life within De La Salle College. They listened attentively to Charlie Batch, a former NFL Quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and founder of The Best of the Batch Foundation that supports underprivileged urban youth. They all enjoyed the experience of interacting with the other schools in support of Global Dignity Day.
