IB MYP (6-9)

IB MYP model colour

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) encourages our students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. As an IB World School since 2012, we have seen that the MYP leads to personal growth and intellectual development that continues even after our students graduate.

The IB aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students, who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learn in real world, complex and unpredictable situations.

The IB MYP is designed to be student centred and flexible enough to meet the needs of all students. The IB MYP provides a framework for teaching and learning based on the content of the Western Australian Curriculum. We are preparing students to be active members of our global society by using critical thinking and research skills, creativity and reflection and by participating in community service.

Community project

Through the final year of the IB MYP (Year 9), the students take on a community project, either individually or in small groups. The project is a significant body of work produced over an extended period of time. It is a work of the students’ own initiative that reflects a commitment to service as action and their experience with the Middle Years Programme. It also demonstrates the skills and understandings that have been developed during the MYP journey.

Those students who chose to display their work will do so at the Community Project Exhibition, in the Performing Arts Centre at the Glen Forrest Campus from 27-30 November 2018. The exhibition will be open to the public and advertised on the College Facebook page leading up to the event.

You’ll find more information on the IB website.
