IBDP Personal Project Composition

Every year, I have the privilege to work with students in Grade 10 on their Personal Project. It is a challenging process, which requires stamina and resilience from the students (and the teacher alike).


The aims of the MYP projects are to encourage and enable students to:

  • participate in a sustained, self-directed inquiry within a global context

  • generate creative new insights and develop deeper understandings through in-depth investigation

  • demonstrate the skills, attitudes and knowledge required to complete a project over an extended period of time

  • communicate effectively in a variety of situations

  • demonstrate responsible action through, or as a result of, learning

  • appreciate the process of learning and take pride in their accomplishments. (information taken from the IBO website)


This year, one of my students composed a touching song and she has given me permission to share it.
