Despite having to bring the majority of our learning back indoors and a distinct lack of high ropes courses!
From the start of the year, I have been very impressed with how Year 12 (and the whole IB cohort of students) have conducted themselves and they are truly creating a inquisitve, diverse and inclusive learning community. Here are some thoughts from Year 12 students regarding their start to the academic year and the IB Diploma Programme:
During our first week back after the residential I particularly enjoyed continuing to learn psychology as this wasn't a subject I could learn ever before at IGCSE. It is definitely a lesson that I particularly look forward to every time I see it on my schedule - Pawel O.
I have immensely enjoyed Monday's volleyball club. Not only was it a great way to loosen up after a long school day, but also to have great fun through collaborative drills. However, the most enjoyable part of the club, is when towards the end of it we play a game, as it puts tension and excitement into the session.
Settling into the school has been much easier than I expected it to be. I quickly noticed that students are very welcoming and eager to help. I am looking forward to developing my IB learning profile characteristics, as I have the support from teachers.
Following the IB Residential, everybody had a positive mood and students were having great rapport with teachers and each other. On Wednesday we had our IB Student Leadership meeting and began to discuss about our school's sustainability and how to improve it .
This week I looked forward to getting back to school to continue working on my painting during art. My project requires a lot of my time and I always look forward to developing and improving it. Art is something that I’m passionate about and I enjoy very much.
As my year group ( YEAR 12) returned from green camp, the program was still ongoing in school. Fresh and relaxed, with new connections between colleagues, we started a very interesting topic in Biology, about cell theory, their structure and characteristics, each organelle in a cell has. The class are always interesting, exploring new and unknown parts of a cell, whilst getting to know what all humans are made up of.
I wish all of our TBS Warsaw students and families a restful and enjoyable weekend.
Head of Year 12
