International events are an essential part of the plan of studies at NACE Schools. They are included in one of our fundamental pillars as a school: Global Readiness.
Through international events, pupils have the opportunity to interact with students from other countries, to improve their language skills and to truly understand other points of view. International events also promote a sense of respect and tolerance, which is one of the values we encourage at our international private school.
Our international events take place over the course of the academic year and bring together pupils of 50 different nationalities. Some of the most noteworthy events in the school year are the NACE Olympics, International Music Week, the Global competition and the NACE Model United Nations.

“Our pupils’ all-round education wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t encompass all aspects of personal development: cognitive, physical, artistic, social… and through sport, we work on them all. Proof of this is the promotion of these activities, such as the Olympic Games, one of the most important events of the academic year in which the best athletes from all our schools compete in a wide variety of sports. All of this takes place in an atmosphere of friendship and togetherness, something which makes this an unforgettable experience for our pupils.”
