The aim of the International Baccalaureate is for students to become inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
We are thankful that on Tuesday evening our Year 6 students had the wonderful opportunity to showcase these attributes to the parent and school community.
This special event celebrates their learning journey over the course of the last 10 weeks. The students spoke with confidence about their passion and goals and displayed pride in their exhibits.
The central idea that was the focus of this unit of inquiry was ‘Human actions and decisions in sharing our planet can impact the world.’
Students were involved in advocating for a global issue that was influenced by the UN Global Goals and that they were personally connected to and passionate about through creative communication and art forms. These Global Goals gave students a relevant context for their inquiries.
The students have been guided through their personal inquiries, collaborating to effectively communicate their message through the support of mentors, guest presenters and experts.
Through the Exhibition, the Year 6 students demonstrated the attributes of the Learner Profile and developed the essential skills needed now and beyond the classroom.
Many thanks to all involved: students, volunteers, parents, teachers and support staff.
