The Global Classroom launched by Scarisbrick Hall School in Lancashire UK in partnership with the World Health Organisation and UNICEF aims to bring together the world’s school children across the globe to connect and have a voice during the COVID-19 global pandemic. This monthly series features world-recognized speakers, celebrities and distinguished guests including Bear Grylls, one of the most recognized faces in terms of survival and outdoor adventure, Captain Dave Henson OBE who helped to found the Invictus Games which is also championed by Prince Harry, multi-music award winner, Heather Small who achieved massive success with M People and the mother of Lady Gaga, Cynthia Germanotta, Goodwill Ambassador for Mental Health from the WHO. Dr. Carol O'Donnell, Dr. Brian Mandell, and Ms. Katherine Blanchard of SSEC use their "teacher" voices to engage the students who log on in active hands-on learning. Over 14,000 students participate live in each Global Classroom event.
