Welcome back everyone!
Hopefully the holidays brought you lots of new experiences, friends and time with family. Your batteries should you be well and truly recharged for the new academic year ahead!
Welcome to all you new IB1s… We’re really looking forward to getting to know you better at our MAMBO DP RETREAT which will take place from Thursday August 22nd- Saturday August 24th.
We have some exciting new developments to the program this year…
–> Take Action Tuesdays!
All Community Service Activities will take place on one day. No other activities will be scheduled until after 5pm. This means MORE time to get off campus MORE, to make MORE of a difference with a renewed focus and deeper connections with partner schools and organizations.
–> New Student Initiated CAS projects
IB1s will be encouraged to pursue their own projects, rooted in their passions. These CAS projects will include two or all three elements of CAS (Creativity, Action and Service). Excellent models of CAS projects initiated by IB1s last year are MATRIX and POWER TO THE PEN. Looking forward to more evolving this year!
–> Your CAS COORDINATOR can be found in B3 on days 2,4,6,8,10
Same support will be offered, just at different times and in a different place!
–> Community Service Sign Ups will take place online
This means that grades 6-11 can make their decisions thoughtfully, with a focus on individual interests and passions. Plenty of information will be provided prior to sign up to ensure that each student makes the best choice for themselves.
