On Thursday 28th April Y5 students presented their Middle Years Programme (MYP) Personal Projects to the School community.
The Personal Projects represent the culmination of the MYP stage and are an opportunity to explore an area of personal interest over an extended period of time. Students consolidate knowledge and skills and prepare for the next stages of education through self-management, research, communication, critical and creative thinking and collaboration.
For the development of their Personal Projects, the students have had several guidance sessions with the Supervisors, who monitor their progress and guide them to achieve their goals. Finally, they present a product or tangible result, a work diary (in which they record their ideas, criteria, plans, difficulties and research) and a report explaining the project and its impact on society.
This year we have seen the presentation of very different projects, such as an ecological, sustainable and animal-free perfume made with natural materials; a digital magazine created by one of our students to provide a creative and communication space open to the students of the school and even the composition of a piece of classical music through Python programming.
The event was attended by numerous relatives, who were fascinated by the work presented, which incorporated such important values as perseverance, the pursuit of an objective, planning and the management of a personal project in which the aim is to develop the creativity of the pupils.
At the same time, the Supervisors themselves and the Coordinator of the PAI, Ms. Estela González, are very satisfied with the Personal Projects presented, as well as with the professionalism and commitment they have maintained during their elaboration.
We would like to congratulate all the Year 10 students for the effort made and the goals achieved. A promising future is ahead of all of you!
