The 2019 Grade 6 Exhibition opened with an exciting buzz. In preparation for the busy but jammed packed week, all the students in year six worked relentlessly preparing for this exciting experience.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) exhibition represents a significant event in the life of a PYP student. It is an opportunity for students to exhibit the attributes of the International Baccalaureate learner profile that they have been developing throughout their engagement in the PYP. Students have been engaged in a transdisciplinary inquiry process that has required them to identify, investigate and offer solutions to real-life situations. The preparation for exhibition has the students engaged in an in-depth, collaborative inquiry and an opportunity to demonstrate responsibility and independence in their learning. Students have tuned into their learning through research, excursions, surveys and interviews of knowledgeable community members. The preparation for exhibition has allowed the students to apply their learning of previous years through the PYP and demonstrate acting in accordance with their inquiry.

The students kicked off their exhibition presentations, by inviting classes to come through Monday – Wednesday and further into the evening for our parent community. Classes were welcomed by viewing a video presentation of the learning journey experienced by all year six students before viewing their exhibition presentations. The atmosphere was abuzz as the students and parents stopped at various booths as the were enlightened by our year six exhibitors. Students and parents walked away with new knowledge of various topics. It was definitely an exciting and successful event in the lives of our year six students and teachers. – Mrs. Carmen Sacco, Assistant Principal for Years 5&6.
