I think the PYP Exhibition may be my favourite event in the school calendar. It eloquently and powerfully demonstrates the scope and purpose of an IB education and I inevitably come away having learned something important and thought-provoking.
Yesterday we were treated to a masterclass in research, collaboration, communication and reflection led by our wonderful Year 6 students.
Watching their presentations and browsing their websites, I have learnt about global warming, biodiversity, sustainable cities, bees, racial inequality, poverty, social media, AI, technology in education, economic inequality, homelessness, autism, ocean pollution, plastic pollution and food waste.
These are all significant issues that are meaningful to the individual students and are of importance to us all. These young students have developed and showcased skills that they will use again and again in their education and beyond. They have demonstrated that they are thinkers and problem-solvers. When I witness their creative and critical thinking skills, I feel optimistic about the future.
A big shout out to Mr Spoore, Mrs Gupta, Mr Rehman and all the mentors who supported the students. Huge congratulations to all our Year 6 students! You did a phenomenal job and should all be proud of what you have accomplished.
Wishing you all a brilliant Spring break and looking forward to seeing all the students back in school after the holidays.
