Year 6 Exhibition Astounds
On August 31 our Year 6 students presented the inaugural Ballarat Grammar PYP Exhibition. The Exhibition drew extraordinary support and interest from our School community with more than 350 in attendance on the Monday night.
What is a PYP Exhibition?
In the final year of the PYP, students carry out an extended, in-depth, collaborative project known as the PYP Exhibition. This involves students working collaboratively to conduct an in-depth inquiry into real life issues or problems. Students collectively synthesise all of the essential elements of the PYP in ways that can be shared with the whole school community.
- The Exhibition provides teachers with a powerful and authentic process for assessing student understanding
- It represents a unique and significant opportunity for students to exhibit the attributes of the IB learner profile developed throughout their engagement with the PYP
- It also provides schools and students with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the transition of learners to the next phase of their education
Our Year 6 students are to be congratulated for presenting such thoughtful and comprehensive evidence of the collaborative in-depth inquiries that have taken place over Term 3 in the Junior School.
