The MYP Personal Project is an important component of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP). It provides students with an opportunity to explore their interests, passions and talents while demonstrating their understanding of essential skills and knowledge acquired throughout the MYP.
This year, our Grade 10 students embarked on a year-long independent project where they chose a topic of personal significance and engaged in a self-directed inquiry. They developed a clear goal, created a detailed plan, and executed their project, documenting their progress along the way. Their projects took various forms, such as a research papers, product prototypes and even a piece of knitting.
Students enhanced their critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills. They learnt to manage their time effectively, set realistic targets and reflect on their learning journey. The project encouraged students to be creative, innovative, and take risks, fostering their personal and academic growth.
Our students really outdid themselves this year.
