After a week in Vienna visiting schools and family it is wonderful to be back at school just in time for the excitement of rotations, Fun Fair, rehearsals and the rest of May excitement!
In Vienna, I spent some time at the Danube International School, an IB school in the heart of the city, reviewing various aspects of the program, as well as professional development possibilities with the Head of DIS, Ian Piper. I was also fortunate to meet with the PYP coordinator of Vienna International School, for similar discussions and sharing of experience and best practice in our schools.
In other IB news, I have been invited to present on student action at Kent State University later in May, at an IB research conference. While I am honoured to present to this group of researchers, it will also be exciting to hear the latest research about various aspects of the IB programs.
The school year is drawing towards the close. After so much learning, May brings opportunities for our students to demonstrate the progress they've made, their commitment, enthusiasm, creativity, risk taking, and their love of a good time. The long list of events and dates highlights the approaching excitement.
Let the fun begin - see you at the Fair!
