This week we have had several requests from students to start new “online” clubs – a debate club, a movie club and a cooking club – led by students, and modelling in many ways what is offered by the school in the TEDLed, Lifestyle Lectures and Community quiz sessions that take place on a weekly basis. All three are very viable suggestions, and it is just further evidence of how our students are agile in their thinking and real problem-solvers.
The IB Student Leadership team have been very busy this week on a number of different fronts, showing that you don’t need to be in the building to be making a difference. They have supported the Rube Goldberg machine drop down day by helping collate all of the year group videos, they wrote and ran the Community Quiz this Friday morning, and have also been involved in the IB school magazine and this well-being video above.
Following on from last week’s blog on universities, please find below a link to the Cialfo online virtual university fair taking place from the 22-24 May. Students and parents can follow the link to sign up and drop into presentations by university admissions staff from around the globe. If you are interested please do take a look by clicking here.
Finally, please spare a thought for your Year 13 students, who should have been attending their IB graduation event today. Like so many students around the world, they have been finding ways to embrace these current new “norms” and many Year 13 students are currently working behind the scenes to ensure that the virtual IB graduation on June 10th is the best it can possibly be. Thanks to all currently involved, more information on this at a later date.
Stay safe and well, and keep washing your hands.
Head of IBDP
