The school year 2016/17 is coming to an end and therefore most of the Action & Service Projects are finished. The Action & Service display on the first floor shows an overview of the projects of all the MYP classes.
Many thanks and congratulations to all the students, supervisors and homeroom teachers who made all these actions happen. Our thanks also go to parents for supporting the students. Please visit the display (near the entrance of the Art Foyer) and have a look at the A&S achievements of this school year!Grade 6:
To support the transition from PYP to MYP grade 6 is creating a video/slideshow to show what it is like in middle school. They will be giving advice, tips to be successful and get the future MYP students excited about the fun parts of the MYP.
The grade 7s decided their goal for Action & Service this year was to raise awareness and money for the endangered Mountain Gorillas. They took part in having a stall at the MCP Flea Market and gave part of the money to the World Wildlife Fund and the remaining money to MCP. They also held an event in which the students gave a presentation on the Gorillas, organised a Bake Sale and did face painting to raise more money. In total the amount collected was 172 Euros 50 Cent.
Grade 8 devided into two groups who planned A&S projects:
“Creative Food projects that draw their inspiration from books & stories” – that is how a colourful poster announced the Edible Book Fest. This was an Action & Service project by a large group of Grade 8 students, The poster was inspiring, too, and many children, teenager and parents came and brought in wonderful, mouth-watering, crazy and funny creations. Thanks to the responsible Grade 8 students, the whole event was a wonderful experience, and praise goes to our librarian Mrs Clower, for seeing them through the whole process from first ideas to final details.
Another group of 4 students decided to read to young children as a way to help our community. While they did this months ago, we are just now getting around to displaying how they have impacted the school community.
This year the grade 9 students participated in a variety of individual and unique Actin & Service experiences. The students identified needs in the community, set their own goals, developed a plan of action, and reflected on their involvement, growth, and impact on the world around them. Some projects this year were: running an after school soccer program for younger students, setting up rooms for SAT or giving their time to MCP events and fundraisers.
The grade 10 students presented their Personal Projects to the H.I.S. Community. They shared their ideas with parents, staff and secondary students and gave a special presentation to primary students. The Personal Project is the final challenge for all students in the MYP. Some topics this year were Music Composition, Space Travel, Book Making, Disaster Response, Football, Allergies, Photography, Leadership and Nutrition.
Many thanks to Frau Kress for co-ordinating the Service and Action this school year.
