Very successful Personal project presentations / exhibition MYP 5 and TTO 4 students!

February 2016

At the annual Personal project Presentation and exhibition, 73 students from MYP 5 and
TTO 4 showed their projects to a group of proud parents, grandparents, friends and supervisors.
It was amazing to see the variety of projects all unique and personal; Composing music for
multiple instruments and having it be performed by an orchestra, creating a usable outdoor
pool table;, creating a photo book  expressing artistic ideas; these are just a few of the
wonderful projects presented on the 12th . You can find a complete list here.

When the students started with their projects in April 2015 they began to ask questions and
find answers, questions such as: why and how am I going to develop my idea or product.
The products were finished in November, followed by the Written Report, in which they
reflect on questions such as; Why have I done the things I did the way I did them? Why this
way? To what extent was my research useful and relevant. What choices did I make and when
I look back how did these choices turn out, why was it good and why was it not good?

In a special session all supervisors will discuss and standardise the reports. By the end of
week 11 this process will be completed and the final grades will be announced.

Well done, all of you, I’m proud of you.



Well done, I'm proud of you.
