This is a student-driven, independent project which is a culmination of the student’s journey through the MYP program. The focus is the process that leads to the creation development of a product which could be anything from the creation of a public awareness campaign, to writing a book, to designing a green school. The project challenges students to produce an extended piece of work (maximum 4,000 words), to engage in personal inquiry, to demonstrate their development of research and time management skills and to reflect on learning.
Each student is allocated a supervisor to support them through the project. The grade for the Personal Project counts as a course grade and credit is awarded for a minimum score of three.
