Self-awareness leads the way

A big part of building one’s career is “planning” and for the plan to be successful there are lot of factors involved.

One important factor is self-awareness. An individual with good self-awareness would be decisive and capable of dealing with their decisions’ outcomes.

How do you build self-awareness?

1. Practice writing personal journals on regular basis.

2. Observe your own pattern of managing time.

3. Observe how you are with people.

4. Observe your emotions and how you respond to them.

5. Observe your desire of ideal life.

As a young individual, you can explore information about yourself and not be fixed about it. You are in the process of evolving and building yourself, so contemplate. Seek advice and assistance from your Career Counsellor.

Student Led Conference

Celebrating the culmination of Unit 1

Our recent MYP Student-Led Conference was an extraordinary showcase of our students’ learning journey and achievements in Unit 1 across all subjects.

Our math enthusiasts wove equations into an enchanting performance, proving that math is not just about numbers but can also be an art form. Literary landscapes came to life as our budding storytellers and poets performed scenes and recited verses, bringing their favorite texts to life. The scientific wonders our young minds uncovered were showcased through experiments and demonstrations, capturing the excitement of discovery in the world of science. History came alive as students transported everyone through time, sharing key moments through dramatizations and vivid storytelling. Artistic expressions were on full display as our artists used various mediums to showcase their understanding of art and design.

In addition to the performances, each student had their own dedicated space where they proudly displayed their portfolios. These classroom stations housed detailed presentations, charts, and visual aids that provided an in-depth look at their Unit 1 learnings and accomplishments across the subjects.
