What is the Exhibition?

  • The Exhibition is a celebration of learning for students.

  • It is a culminating project that involves a collaborative inquiry that students are interested in exploring.

  • The Exhibition is meant to reflect what students understand of the inquiry process and other PYP elements such as the attributes of the learner profile that they have been developing over the course of their studies.

  • The Exhibition is an opportunity for students to demonstrate independence and responsibility for their own learning. They will be able to take their learning from the previous units of inquiry and demonstrate how they can take action as a result of their learning.
