Message from our Head of IBDP

Welcome (back)!

Teachers have been thrilled to welcome back our year 13 students and to welcome our year 12 students to the IB at TBS for the start of the academic year. I am excited to be joining the students and teachers at TBS and feel warmly welcomed. Students have shared their thoughts about their excitement to return to school, and have been sharing their stories from their recent break and last few months. Year 13 students were working hard over the summer to ensure that their first drafts of extended essays were ready to submit, and share with their supervisors. Our students have conducted some fascinating research including that about machine learning and neural networks, investments and economic growth, comparing management techniques at Amazon and Google, effects of metals on bacteria, and sleep patterns.

 

When students study the IB Diploma Programme, they are required to study six subjects across the disciplines, complete projects linked to creativity, activity and service (CAS), reflect on the nature of knowledge through Theory of Knowledge (TOK), and complete an independent, self-directed piece of research, culminating in a 4,000-word essay (their Extended Essay). Over the two years of IB, students not only learn subject-related knowledge, but develop ‘21st Century Skills’, with a strong focus on critical thinking, communication, self-management, research and social skills. Research commissioned by the IB indicates that with this focus on learning at school, students report feeling highly prepared for university studies, most specially writing and self-management (Ateşkan et al 2015).

Our teachers are passionate about their subjects, our students, and learning, and are so happy to see our students back in school. We are looking forward to a year full of learning.
