Today was the IB Campus' second Culture Day. The rich diversity of our community was celebrated through food, dress, presentations, dances and a fashion show showcasing authentic dress. It was a beautiful thing to see our young people so proud of their backgrounds and so willing to learn about each other's lives. Thank you to everyone who helped organize the day. Thank you to the parents! The desserts surpassed last year's feast which is no small thing!

6th grade students had the opportunity to ask local officials from Bensalem and Senator Farry’s office about efforts to increase sustainability in our community. They learned how our township is exploring geothermal energy, ways to reduce pollutants from reaching streams and waterways, and efforts to make our area a nice place to live through the many community outreach programs. Students will use this knowledge when completing a group project about a sustainable city and have to make decisions on energy sources, green spaces, waste management, and more.

One of the hallmarks of the International Baccalaureate's Middle Years Programme is Personal Project. MYP students in their final year explore an area of personal interest over an extended period. It provides them the opportunity to consolidate their learning and develop important skills they’ll need in both further education and life beyond the classroom. It also helps them develop confidence to become principled, lifelong learners. Click the link to check out photos from last night's Personal Project Exhibition:
