Last month our MYP5 students shared their Personal Projects with the school community during our PP Exhibition. Over eight months, our seventeen MYP5 students researched and produced their independent projects. Each student worked with a teacher-supervisor who acted as a mentor and a guide on the side. The students delved into issues of personal importance, and many of these projects had local and global significance, from mental health awareness to body-shaming to teenage pregnancy and period poverty. Personal Projects start with an individual inquiry; students come up with their own learning goals connected to their life-experiences, passions, interests, and skills. The students identify and apply Approaches To Learning (ATL) skills to help achieve their goals. The students set success criteria and then measure their projects against these criteria.
