IB News

It has been a great start to the year for our IB Diploma Students, albeit a very busy one! Following on from the outstanding results of last year’s IB students (with a top ATAR of 92), the Year 12’s have a renewed sense of focus and a determination to do their best. This year we welcomed Holly and Jackson into Year 11, and they have proven themselves as being a great addition to our IB family!
This term has been a busy one already, with students having the opportunity to engage in three excursions. In week one, the Visual Art students visited the Wollongong City Gallery to see works by artist Tony Ameneiro, and last week they ventured to Hazlehurst regional art gallery where they developed their understanding of artist and curatorial practices. In week three, both the Year 11 and Year 12 students visited the University of Wollongong Library so that they could renew their membership cards, and search for resources for their extended essays.
This week on Thursday evening, we have our Fiji Trip information evening with Rustic Pathways. This trip is part of the service learning component built into the CAS programme, and aims to develop in students the learner profile attributes, and to allow them the opportunity to engage in a project of global significance.
