Expression and Action

We continue to explore the them How We Express Ourselves and the ways in which we reflect on, extend, and enjoy our creativity. (ibo.org)

This week we we were constantly creative with an MYP Talent Show, Book Character Day and more. Our creativity and action also highlights all the ways we continue to grow and show attributes of the Learner Profile. Our actions show who we are and what we’ve learned.

Exploring expression and connections through culture

Grade One thinkers and communicators think about culture an expression and share their work with others as they explore diversity and connections.
Communication allows us to connect with others. These grade One communicators make their learning and thinking visible as they express who they are.

#RethinkLabels

Our young people in MYP spent time with Brian Anthony from the Diversity Center. This MYP Assembly explored labels and stereotypes. This experience also kicked off our year-long connection with the Diversity Center to start an MYP student group focused on diversity, equity and inclusion. THANK YOU to Piet Van Lier and the CIS Equity and Inclusion group who organized funding and made this event and future work with the Diversity Center possible.
