The D1 class recently had their first orientation session to help them understand the IBDP beyond content and subject combinations. The importance of the transdisciplinary nature of these subjects in real life, developing IB learner profile attributes through collaboration, research, and problem-solving were clearly communicated to our new learners. It was highlighted that the Diploma programme is not content driven but focusses on the development of skills such as research, communication, self-management, and collaboration.
While the SIS community embodies the IB philosophy, this session marked an effective beginning towards a successful journey of insightful sessions to come in the following weeks. We discussed the core elements of the IB that make it one of the most unique programmes worldwide. This session contributes towards our commitment to developing strong IB learners.
While IBDP prepares students for life beyond school, we strive towards developing lifelong learners.
