Dear MYP Colleagues,
I am hosting a Job-a-like for schools in the region on Tuesday September 18th from 10am to 3pm.
The theme of the Job-a-like is ‘IDUs for experienced MYP teachers’. I am extending an invitation to anyone who teaches MYP to attend this workshop, although places are limited so if you are interested please get in touch.
The workshop will include a quick briefing on what an IDU is according to the IB and then time for planning, refining and sharing IDU ideas and plans will be given.
Looking forward to hearing from you..
Grade 10 Students! Personal Project is about to begin and we are all set for a fantastic year full of exciting projects, presentations and personal goals. I will see you all for a full day on Wednesday but in preparation for that, please login to Managebac and take a look at the Personal Project section and the information contained in there for you.
Go to the school website – students – Managebac and then login. If you have difficulty logging in contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you in Grades 6 – 10?
If the answer is yes then…. are you allowed in the Middle School corridor during break and lunch?
The answer is no! Students in Grade 6-10 cannot be in the upstairs corridors at lunchtime. Wait for the bell to go to your lockers or your classrooms. You have been warned 🙂
Dear Grade 10 Students, the list of the Personal Project Supervisors has now been finalised and is attached to this post. You should also be able to see your Supervisor in Veracross by tomorrow morning. Please come and see me if you have any questions. Grade 10 Personal Project Supervisor List 2018
The final Discover China Trip lists have now been created and uploaded to Veracross. Check your portal to see which trip you will be going on.

Enjoy the first Extended Advisory of the year today 8.00 to 8.40am. Spend time getting to know each other and having fun.
If you haven’t decluttered or visited to pick up free goodies you have until 1pm today. After 1pm the PAC will be magically restored to its normal state. Hurry hurry hurry – you have been warned!
Decluttering got off to an incredible start yesterday thanks to the intrepid Grade 2 team. They came, they collected and they sorted. Well done Grade 2!
So… please come and repurpose the ‘stuff’. There is a lot! A lot is new. There are filing cabinets, folders, notebooks, stationery, yearbooks (even 2004 – 5!) and much much more. See you there with your shopping bags!
Dear Teachers of Grade 8.
Triona and I are planning to take all of G8 to Niu Shou Shan for a Humanities Field Trip on Wednesday June 6th. We will be gone during Blocks 3, 4 and 5. Please let either Triona or I know if there are any difficulties with this plan.
Kind Regards, Ruth
Decluttering is fast becoming an annual event…
This year it will take place on June 5th-7th in the PAC and run in a very similar way to last year.
As you approach the end of the year any items that you do not want any longer but that could be used by other teachers should be set aside and brought to the PAC for redistributing to other members of staff.
Grade 2 students will be instrumental in the Decluttering process and will be in touch with you nearer to the time with suggestions and offers of help.
Our goal is not only to declutter our classrooms but to reduce waste, recycle, rethink and refuse by reducing the amount of new items that we purchase.
