Year 9 students attended an introductory evening to their Personal Project on Wednesday evening in Week 1. The Personal Project, completed in Year 10, is the culminating project for our students undertaking the IB Middle Years programme.

Students begin in Term Four, while in Year 9, submitting their final product in August of Year 10 to exhibit in October that same year. This significant piece of work is a long-term, independent research project based on any topic or subject of which the student is passionate.

Students and parents began the evening listening to the theory behind and requirements of the Project before they moved to the Great hall to view the current Year 10 Personal Project Exhibition. Our Year 10 students were eagerly waiting their arrival for the opportunity to share their journey and achievements, and of course to impart some sound advice.

The evening was well attended and our Year 9s left with busy minds, full of inspiration, as they headed home to nut out their own projects.
