The MYP focuses on developing 10 qualities (the IB learner profile) in our students. These attributes are: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective.
On the week beginning 7th January we ran an ‘MYP Passport Challenge’ where students were given a mini ‘passport’ gathering evidence illustrating each of the learner profile attributes. Students gave some excellent examples (both in and outside of lessons) as evidence; these ranged from assisting others with homework (demonstrating the ‘caring’ attribute) to auditioning in front of peers (demonstrating the risk-taker attribute). We are very proud to see our Year 7 students displaying a wide range of behaviours successfully and developing a better understanding of how these attributes can help them become responsible members of society.
