Service Learning in MYP and DP
During this session, we will look at service learning across the MYP and DP programmes, with a focus on service learning through the curriculum. Curricular service learning is different from the 'service' component of CAS because CAS can not include service initiatives for which students receive a mark. One of the objectives of this session will be for you to walk away with at least one practical idea for integrating service into a curricular unit.

MYP Community and PP Project celebration Planning
This session explores the MYP Personal Project and its role in the programme.  We will explore the organization, leadership and support that schools are offering their students and teachers throughout the project.  We will also spend time in discussion about each school's celebration of the projects, and how they are presented to the school community.  We hope that you will come away with some fresh ideas for your school's projects.  Please come and join us.
