IBDP VISUAL ARTS EXHIBITION

  • Published in Senior

 This week, 6YL students presented their Visual Arts Exhibition as part of their IBDP. Students worked very hard to put up this exhibition after these atypical years in which studio time was very limited due to the circumstances. 

They selected pieces that show evidence of their creativity, technical accomplishment durting the visual arts course and an understanding of the use of materials, ideas and practices to realize their intentions. Students also evidence the decision-making process that underpins selecting a connected and cohesive body of work for an audience in the form of a curatorial rationale that can be found beside their display. 

This exhibition celebrates the hard work and reflective capacity of our students.

On Thursday 23rd September, Form 1 and 1st Year Liceo students arrived to School to pledge and promise allegiance to the Uruguayan flag. The current situation made it impossible to hold only one ceremony, so there were two ceremonies in the Gymnasium. Both ceremonies were recorded and a video will soon be shared with the families.

FORM 5 - PYP PREPARATION

  • Published in Junior

Preparations for the Form 5 PYP Exhibition are already underway. The Exhibition is the culmination of the PYP when students work on enduring understandings that are related not only to academic areas but also to life beyond School.
Students so far have taken some time to reflect on the transdisciplinary theme How the world works and the inquiries that they have been involved with over the past few years. This has resulted in discussions about issues or problems they have noticed at home, in school or in the local area, which will lead to an in‐depth inquiry.
We will keep you informed with more updates in the coming weeks.


 

Esta semana y por lo que resta de mes de setiembre, el equipo de Senior Wellbeing se ha planteado trabajar en forma transversal la identidad digital, bajo el título “Soy lo que posteo - ¿Soy lo que posteo?”. La actividad se enmarca dentro de nuestro mes de “Awareness and Celebrations”: Digital Safety

El título plantea la misma frase como afirmación y pregunta, con el fin de problematizar lo que las redes pueden mostrar o no de mi persona.

“Soy lo que posteo”: fue pensada como frase disparadora para tratar la responsabilidad frente a lo que posteamos; cómo eso habla de nosotros mismos y lo que puede generar en los demás. Asimismo, reflexionar sobre el impacto del “silencio” cuando vemos algo en las redes que no nos parece apropiado o que lesiona a otro/s.   

“¿Soy lo que posteo?”: fue pensada como pregunta disparadora para reflexionar sobre lo que mostramos de nuestras vidas a través de las redes; si es esto auténtico en relación a quienes somos; el manejo de la intimidad y privacidad. 

Los alumnos de Year 1 a Year 4 estarán trabajando en propuestas de reflexión en los respectivos espacios de Form. Los alumnos de Year 5 lo abordarán dentro de las asignatura ToK.

Invitamos a las familias a abordar también la temática en casa, de forma de seguir acompañando a nuestros adolescentes.
