MYP Orientation Evening


An important event in the Secondary school took place on the 12th of September: an MYP orientation meeting for parents. Entitled «MYP coffee morning/tea evening», with an opportunity provided to parents to attend in a chosen time slot either at 8.30 or 18.30, it included topical issues for this IB programme as implemented in our school. The parents who attended the meeting were informed about the results of the MYP evaluation visit, which was held on 27–29 March, 2013, updated in the programme developments, which are effective from September 2014, and briefed about the Area of interaction «Community and Service» achievements and plans as they further grow in students’ engagement in «Creativity. Action. Service» (CAS) as a key component of the Diploma Programme. A dynamic combination of interactive presentational styles, visual aids and group work (as the parents were also asked to review the existing school policies — Language Policy and Academic Honesty Policy — for feedback and to standardize assessment in evaluating a goal from a student’s personal project using criterion B) made their participation a useful experience, which was supported with the results of a short follow-up survey at the end of each session. We look forward to the parents’ continued support of the MYP and use this opportunity to advertise our «MYP burning issues» coffee morning» to be held on the 6th of February, 2014.
