People’s actions can affect society and the environment

In the final year of the Primary Years Programme, the students participate in a culminating project which is the PYP Exhibition. The Exhibition represents a significant event in the life of a PYP School and student which celebrates the transition of learners from primary to secondary education.

 

This term Year Six students will be exploring their chosen issues in preparation for their PYP Exhibition early in Term 3. They will meet weekly with their mentor teachers to discuss their progress on their journey to Exhibition.

 

The Year Six Exhibition will be held on Thursday 27 July - please make note of this date in your diary. The Exhibition will be presented to the school students during the day and to the school community immediately after school finishing at 4.30pm. We look forward to sharing our Exhibition with you.
