ACS Hillingdon students celebrate hard work with Personal Project Presentation

Published Monday 31st of March 2014 03:03:33 PM

Over fifty students from ACS Hillingdon have recently taken part in the Personal Project Presentation, celebrating their final year studying the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP).

The MYP Personal Project is a unit of study showing all the skills and knowledge pupils have developed throughout the programme. Each project is individually created and inspired by the student�s own hobbies or interests.

ACS Hillingdon has been hosting the Personal Projects Presentation for over four years, presenting the personal projects to teachers, family and friends. Increasingly student projects are inspired by technology with many using websites, personal blogs and e-books to present their work.

Students are required to document their Personal Project journey in the form of a process journal, in which they draw upon the skills they have learnt through the five years of the MYP programme. Additionally, the students write a reflective report detailing what they achieved and the new skills they have developed.

Yuki Abe, aged 15, performed a self composed classical piece. Yuki wrote the music for the violin, which he performed, and the piano, which his mother played. He commented:

�I have always been very interested in classical music, so the Personal Projects Presentation provided me with the perfect opportunity to translate my passion into my academic studies. I really enjoyed writing the music and it was great to be able to perform with my mum alongside me.�


Philippa Lees, MYP Personal Project coordinator, commented on the presentation:

�The Personal Projects Presentation was a huge success and really reflected the hard work and effort all the students have been putting in over the past six months. All of the projects they produced have been outstanding, highlighting the creativity and dedication of each student. I am very pleased with the work grade 10 has produced this year, and would like to congratulate everyone involved on their achievements.�
