The Primary Years Programme Exhibition (PYPx) is a culminating event for Grade 6 students in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). The PYPx is an inquiry-based learning experience that requires students to explore real-world issues and topics of their choice, using their skills and knowledge to take action and make a positive impact in their community. Through the PYPx, students develop their critical thinking, research, communication, and collaboration skills, and demonstrate the attributes of the IB Learner Profile. The PYPx is definitely a valuable learning experience for students and it empowers them to become active and responsible global citizens.

They used their skills to create a prototype design for the renovation of our school’s pavement area. This group’s project showcases the value of hands-on learning and the power of design to solve real-world problems.
The fourth and final group of students to present at our school’s Primary Years Programme Exhibition (PYPx) explored the theme of literature.
