As second semester assessments and end of year reports come into focus, it is timely to revisit the heart of our curriculum, the big concepts and attributes that we are working toward. These are encapsulated neatly in the IB Learner Profile and Attitudes. The graphic that stays in my mind and sums up our commitment to the IB goes:

At the final Middle School Assembly on Friday 4 December all teachers right across the curriculum will acknowledge students who have shown sustained commitment to these ideals with our annual Book Awards. Book Awards are presented to students who typically show sustained enthusiasm, willingness to collaborate, are curious, have a love of inquiry and are self-motivated. They are principled, balanced and caring. They are students who take some risks and are willing to reflect upon and communicate the processes and findings of their learning. They act with integrity and empathy. These boys are not necessarily the highest achieving student in a curriculum area but have made the most of the opportunities their teachers, their parents and this year has offered.
