Pre-IB Year 10s held their Student-led Conference
On the morning of Friday, 4th May 2018, Pre-IB Year 10 students started cleaning their classrooms and rearranging the furniture to prepare for their first ever Student-led Conference. After a speech by the Principal, students’ parents sat down with the students and were taken through all the work and activities their children had done so far. Students whose parents could not come were accompanied by their teachers instead, so everyone got to display the fruits of their labour to at least one adult.
The materials on display included Extended Project (Mini EE) ，posters, excellent tests or assignments done in certain subjects as well as CAS experiences. Students shared the process of the work, what they had learnt through them, their self-reflections as learners and so on. It was a chance for parents to discover what students really do on the Pre-IB course, monitor their progress in the ATLs (Social, Communication, Self-management, Thinking and Research skills) and evaluate the growth in their children throughout this past year.
When the Student-led Conference came to a close, parents visited subject teachers to talk about their children’s report card results this term. Generally, parents seemed appreciative of the opportunity to find out more about their children’s learning through this special event.
