Primary Years Programme (PYP) Learner Profile

PYP Exhibition

The PYP Exhibition represents a significant event in the life of a PYP school and student. The Year 5 students will be immersed in an 8-week collaboratively constructed unit of inquiry. This event is the culmination of the 5-year journey undertaken by the students and is a celebration of not only what they learn but also how they learn in an inquiry-based approach. Students are involved in all of the essential elements of the PYP and share them with the whole school community in an exhibition presentation.

The PYP Exhibition has a number of key purposes:

  • For students to engage in an in-depth, collaborative inquiry
  • To provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate independence and responsibility for their own learning
  • For students to synthesize and apply their learning of previous years and to reflect upon their journey through the PYP
  • To demonstrate how students can take action as a result of their learning
  • To unite the students, teachers, parents and other members of the school community in a collaborative experience that incorporates the essential elements of the PYP

This year the boys' inquiries will be guided by the transdisciplinary theme of 'Who we are' with the central idea: "Beliefs, values, culture, health and the environment have an impact on who we are as individuals.'

The Exhibition will take place on Wednesday 1st of November, 2017.

This is an exciting time for all and we look forward to seeing you there.
