Last week I was fortunate enough to attend the International Baccalaureate Africa, Middle East and Europe Regional Conference in Barcelona. 3 days of workshops, exhibitions and presentations on all aspects of the IB were attended by over 1500 delegates from around the region. I took part in workshops on topics as diverse as the IB Educator Network to recent changes in IBDP Assessments. It is always stimulating to discuss subjects of common interest with colleagues from different schools and to come away with confirmation that what we are doing is often better than other equally reputable schools; our IBDP is in very good shape.
By now, parents of Year 11 and Year 13 students should have received a Grade Card and appointment sheet for the Parent Consultation Evening being held on Wednesday 19th October from 3.30pm to 6.30pm where academic staff will be available to meet parents and discuss the progress their child is making towards the upcoming external examinations in May/June 2017. I do look forward to meeting as many parents as possible at this important event.
Have a learning-filled week.
