Grade 6 PYP Exhibition 2016
On Wednesday 14th September our Grade 6 students presented their PYP Exhibition to our school community. Thank-you to everyone who came along to help them celebrate their learning. This year our Exhibition was carried out under the transdisciplinary theme of “Who We Are” with the central idea being “Exploring and questioning human beliefs, values, culture health and communities can inspire action”. The areas of interest that the students chose were varied and included

- Digital Safety
- Aboriginal Culture
- Japanese Culture
- Animal Cruelty
- Homelessness and
It was quite inspiring to see how passionate our students were about their chosen subject, their learning and the different ways they either had taken action or plan to take action. We are very proud of our Grade 6 students who really are living the IB Mission Statement…
“The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.”
