A Letter from the Secondary Principal
I am writing to you now during our exam period, the culmination of the efforts of all our teachers and students this past semester. It is therefore a good time to reflect on the developments and achievements this semester and look ahead to the future.
As you are aware the big news in secondary is our transition to IB. Over the past few months we have been putting in place the necessary preparations for the continuing process next semester. This includes professional learning programs for all our teachers, restructuring of our assessment practices and creating the curriculum for IB. I can say we are well on track with the program and I am very excited to see the students tackling new styles of learning next semester.
During the transition to IB, some students will adjust quickly to the changes and others will take more time. This means next semester we will be dedicating additional resources to giving the individualized support that each student needs. Based on the results from the MAP and the internal assessments, students will get specific timetables maximize the progress they make. The result is students will take the 8 core IB subjects during the regular timetable but will also receive additional enrichment classes during club time/life skills time and on Wednesdays after or before CAASEL.
In order to keep the school community informed about the changes to the curriculum, we will be hosting several more IB information seminars starting in the new semester. The next topic will be based around concept and inquiry-based learning.
Wishing you all best for the new year,
