Awesome Year 12 blogs to come!
So we’ve finally launched blogging with Year 12 and they are up and running. We’ve talked about building a positive digital footprint, about the importance of your online brand and about the need to show off your creative and original side. And so now we have the blogs to do it!
Over the course of last year our current Year 13s built some fantastic digital portfolios which really demonstrate the amazing work they do in CAS, their critical thinking ability in TOK and how they’ve developed those all important Approaches to Learning. This week we’ve been chasing up CAS Activity with Year 13 – Activity has to be target focused and students need to be able to show development in a sustained physical activity – part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle!
It’s great to read their blogs and see that they have indeed reflected on their strengths and weaknesses in their chosen sport – like Nicole’s Volleyball achievements or Marcus’s badminton exploits. Here in the IB office Mr Brown and Ms Barnard are setting a great example by running the Bromo half marathon this weekend – good luck! For Ms Barnard it’s her second half marathon in a week after she ran in Bali last weekend – fantastic achievement!
Speaking of marathons, on the 23rd October the Jakarta marathon kicks off, we have about a dozen Year 12 students who’ve signed up to run either 10K or the half marathon to raise money for Sekolah Bisa! There’s also another 8 or 9 students who’ll be planning some fundraising events in school – watch this space for more information.
Next week we’ve got John Cannings, IB Core expert coming in to spend the afternoon with Year 12 talking TOK, and the IME Conference next Friday.
Busy as usual, but exciting times as always.
