The extended essay, a 4,000 word research composition, is a compulsory element of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). It provides students with an opportunity to engage in personal research in a topic of their own choice. It is intended to promote high-level research and writing skills, intellectual discovery and creativity.
 
Our ambitious Year 10 students took on the challenge to research and write their own mini-extended essay of 1,000 words. They had to focus on academic honesty and learn how to reference correctly, using Harvard referencing. It was a challenging task and resulted in some fantastic pieces of research. A wide range of fascinating research topics were investigated, including: Why is global income inequality considered as a serious problem and how do we change it?; The first Chechen War – was the invasion an excuse to flex Russia’s Military might?; The problems facing the great barrier reef; To what extent does the manufacture of Apple products in China increase its profits?

We celebrated students’ achievements with an award ceremony in the DCIS Café. Thank you to the Year 10 for participating and all the staff who supported them as mentors.
