Personal Projects


A Challenging Adventure for
Our Grade 10 Students

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them!”
Walt Disney

One of our school’s main aims is to help students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to participate actively and responsibly in a changing and interrelated world. This means to guide them to become independent learners who can recognise relationships between what they study in our school and the world outside. Well, their chance to change the world has finally arrived!

          The Personal Project represents a clear expression of what the student has learned during their years in MYP and it is a significant body of work produced over an extended period .It is their chance to follow a passion and create something meaningful, for example to write a piece of music, build a mini bike, conduct a science experiment, write a story, film, edit a video…The possibilities are endless!

         There are three parts involved in the process: the Product, the Process Journal and the Write-up ( which describes the goals of the Project, explains its connection to the Global Context and outlines the steps taken to complete it, plus an analysis of how effectively they pursued and completed their goals).

        The students were given a lot of support material from the school and they benefit from the guidance of an individual teacher who acts as their personal project supervisor.

         Our experience from the previous years proves to us that working with the Personal Project is an extraordinary and very rewarding journey for both, students and teachers. We wish them all good luck with their work and we are looking forward to seeing what the outcomes are!
