PYP exhibition update

key-concept-keysForm 5 is the last year of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and, as such, students engage in the PYP exhibition — a collaborative, student-directed, research-based and action-oriented independent inquiry.

Students will lead their PYP exhibition inquiry in the spring term.

The boys have revisited the key concepts of form, function, causation, change, connection, perspective, responsibility and reflection in exhibition periods. These concepts will provide a framework for student questions as they move their inquiry forward. Form 5 students have had opportunities to write their own questions and, during this week’s lessons, we identified and sorted questions from previous years’ exhibition projects by the key concepts.

We’ll host a parent information session about the PYP exhibition on Friday, March 3 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.

PYP exhibition day is Friday, May 12 between 1 and 3 p.m. Form 5 boys will showcase their inquiry projects and action in a UCC community celebration. Form 5 parents should plan to attend.

If you have any questions about the PYP exhibition, please speak to your son’s form teacher or PYP coordinator Dianne Jojic, who can be reached at djojic@ucc.on.ca.
