Congratulations Grade Six!

Last Friday Grade Six students hosted the 2017 PYP Exhibition at Seisen.  The evening started with some snacks (very generously provided by SPA) and a welcome address in the Cafeteria, where we were shown a short video clip of some of the preparations that had been happening the previous week.

The students then invited parents and guests to the Grade Six building, where they showed off the Exhibition spaces they had created to demonstrate and celebrate the skills they had used, the knowledge and understanding they had gained, and the action they had taken over the course of their eight week independent inquiries.

After having time to browse and interact with the students' exhibits, guests were then invited to listen to some of the students' oral presentations, where they were able to listen to the various talk shows, skits and interviews the students had prepared.
We are very proud of all the hard work the students have put in over the past eight weeks to enable them to share these in-depth inquiries and wonderful finished products.  Thank you to all of the families who were able to come and support us on this special night!
