DWSA completed their first year of the One World Global Connections program this year, collaborating with students from Jingling Primary School in China throughout the year. Students from DWSA spoke with the Chinese students via Zoom on April 17, 2024, and shared what they learned through the program. 

One World is also working with 12th grade students at DWSA to help them use design thinking to develop their civic-minded capstone projects.
