The PYP stage offers an enquiry-based learning model in which students learn in a transdisciplinary way by exploring diverse knowledge and skills based on the attributes of the International Baccalaureate (IB) with the aim of making a positive impact on both students’ lives and society.
The PYP stage culminates in Year 5 with the exhibition of group projects, which have been built around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – 17 interconnected global goals designed by the United Nations General Assembly to “achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”.
Year 5 students worked collaboratively in groups to develop a project that addresses one of these issues of great social relevance today, demonstrating the research carried out and the results obtained. Among the projects were projects dedicated to the research and conservation of the beaches of our coastline or the protection of underwater life.
During the event, relatives and collaborators of the school were able to visit the demonstrations made by the students to ask about their projects and learn more about the work carried out.
We hope that the work of our students has served to raise social awareness about the SDGs and their importance. We would like to thank the teaching team involved in guiding the students and organising the event, as well as our Year 5 groups for their great commitment and dedication.
