Lower Division Exhibition 2018

Notre Dame Lower Division fifth grade students participate in an extended, in-depth, collaborative project known as the PYP exhibition. Exhibition is a celebration of learning that is the culmination of all the Approaches to Learning Skills that students acquired during their time at the Lower Division. 

This involves students working collaboratively to conduct an in-depth inquiry into real life issues or problems.  Students collectively synthesize all of the essential elements of the PYP in ways that can be shared with the whole school community.

It also provides teachers with a powerful and authentic process for assessing student understanding.

The exhibition represents a unique and significant opportunity for students to exhibit the attributes of the IB learner profile developed throughout their engagement with the PYP.

It also provides schools and students with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the transition of learners to the next phase of their education.
