For over 40 years, ISA has had the privilege of cultivating a longstanding relationship with the International Baccalaureate (IB). This weekend, the IB is hosting their Global Conference in the Hague, where thousands of educational experts from around the world share their experiences with like-minded peers and colleagues. The theme of this year’s conference is “Embracing innovation, inspiring action”.
We are honoured to have a number of our community members taking part in this important event. Along with six members of our faculty serving as Teacher Facilitators at the conference, we also have student representatives sharing their work and experiences at ISA with the attendees.
Our Upper School Art team has prepared a presentation on their Biomimicry unit. An exhibit is on display for attendees to see the impressive work from our Alumni.
Additionally, Pieter Versloot and Cezare Robles performed at the opening reception on Thursday, 6 October and will perform at the closing ceremony on Saturday, 8 October. As part of their IB Music class, seniors Cezare and Pieter created a short album with four songs. The aim of the project was to create a real-world, collaborative product which would be applicable in the contemporary music industry.
“For our performance, we will play the songs live, with myself on keyboards and Pieter on guitar, and both singing, sticking as close as possible to the original songs we made but adding a more organic, live feel. The EP will eventually be released on streaming platforms such as Spotify.” – Cezare
We are thrilled to be part of the IB global learning community and congratulate all our community participants for representing our school.
