Grade 5 Students Complete their Primary Years Programme

Today, Grade 5 students completed the final year of IB’s Primary Years Programme: The St. Mary’s Exhibition. Our students extensively investigated issues they are passionate about and discovered how they can create awareness and make a difference in the world. These issues ranged from animal neglect, to global water crisis to deforestation, and more. Students engaged in collaborative inquiry; had an opportunity to demonstrate independence and responsibility for their own learning; and synthesized and applied their learning of previous years and reflection upon their journey through the PYP. Students were placed in small groups with a faculty mentor to guide them. Today at Exhibition, students presented their information in the form of an “expo” with a variety of displays and demonstrations to students in Lower School and St. Mary’s faculty and staff.
