At our Assembly on Friday the students shared with us their Week without Walls experiences and we watched video footage from each trip. It was quite clear that everyone involved came away with many lasting memories. Once again, our students were true Ambassadors for ISS and the travel companies we work with have sent in emails expressing the excellent conduct and interactions of our students.

We have our Grade 10 MYP Personal Project Exhibition this coming Thursday starting at 2pm. An invitation letter has been sent to all Grade 10 parents, however, everyone is welcome to come along and hear about the learning journey our Grade 10 students embarked on and the final product and report they have completed. The MYP Personal Project is a significant body of work produced over an extended period - the students began the Personal Project at the end of grade 9 and completed the process at the end of Semester One in grade 10. It is a product of their own initiative and reflects upon their experience of the MYP. The Personal Project is a key component of the MYP programme. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
