As part of the 51st Earth Day celebration, our PYP Visual Art teacher Ms. Ebru created an optional activity for Primary School learners. This activity had a focus on reusing materials, and looking for natural materials in the environment to create different pieces of art. Students submitted their work online, and spoke about why they felt creating artwork with an Earth Day focus was interesting for them.

SEK International School Qatar held a DP Info Session on Tuesday, 20th of April 2021.
During the IBDP Info session participants were able to gain a deeper understanding of what the IB Diploma Programme entails, what subjects, projects and classes it offers, and how it compares to the IBMYP.
The event was a two hour live stream hosted by the DP Coordinator, Mr. Kim Derudder, and our DP teachers.
- At the start, the live stream covered the general framework of the IBDP programme. Followed by a deeper discussion on the three mandatory DP classes: extended essay (EE), theory of knowledge (TOK) and creativity, activity and service (CAS).
- Once the main topics were presented, parents were able to join virtual rooms, one for each subject, to meet with the teachers and learn about each subject, expectations, content and assessment.
This event was a great way to show how SEK International School Qatar, as Microsoft Showcase School, uses technology to educate, inform and create relations through digital platforms.
The PYP Exhibition is the culminating experience for our PYP Learners. The PYPX is an opportunity for students in G5 to follow their passions utilising their research skills, and create local or global change. Our G5 students this year chose a number of different issues to research, including discrimination, air pollution, animal welfare and well-being. They used a variety of different tools and strategies to research their skills and held interviews, created and analysed surveys, and made observations of the world around them. They used this knowledge, and acted on it, creating posters, stop motion animations, videos, and fitness calendars to inform their audience.
Congratulations G5 on a successful demonstration of your skills, knowledge and conceptual understandings. We know this is just a snapshot of where you are in your learning journey, and look forward to supporting you as you continue to provoke change in the world.
