Grade 8 IDU Exhibition is scheduled on 11th December 2018. It will be an exhibition of research done for Summative Assessment task presented through presentation and charts.
- Timings: 08:45 am to 10:30 am
- Venue: Respective Classroom
Grade 8 students will have their HMB @ 10:30 am to 10:50 am (Venue: Bon Appetit) on 11th December
Summative Assessment Task Overview:
- In groups, you will be expected to conduct research into the transmission of a disease and explain what SYSTEMS are at work that causes and prevent disease.
- Your task will require that you work on developing both Science and Humanities skills to make a presentation to your class, adults and other guests about the transmission of an infectious disease.
Details of the Summative Assessment task will be explained to you in your classes by teachers day after tomorrow( 6th December)
The response to the onscreen term Papers of your ward can now be reviewed by you, following the instructions given below:
1. Visit the Url: https://goformative.com/login
2. Login using the student email id of the school (login using Google)
3. Open the assessment displayed on the dashboard

Grade 7 IDU Criterion A 2017-18 Summative Assessment (1)
Dear Students and Parents,
Please refer the new revision timetable
, which will be published by today(i.e) 26th September – at 3:30 pm.
will be followed for Grade 7-8 on the following 5 days before exam (27th Sept to 4th October). Students are required to bring necessary resources as per the timetable.
Rationale: This change is planned so that all subjects get revision slots as per the need of the subject and the last 5 days can be exclusively focused on preparing students for term 1 exams.
Note:The PS, AS, Assembly , HRM slots are removed from timetable for these 5 days.
We are glad to know the interest shown in attending the MYP assessment session through the responses to the form sent earlier.
Please note that if you have already attended session for a particular subject last year or this year, it will make more sense for you to attend it for other subjects as the content is going to be almost same.
The Venue for the sessions are as below, so request you to please be on time at the preferred subject session venue.
Session 1- 8:00- 8:50
- Science at Hippodrome
- Language and Literature at Pulse
Session 2- 9:10- 10:00
- Math at Hippodrome
- Integrated Humanities at Pulse
Note: Individual queries regarding MYP assessments will be catered after 10:00 am by respective coordinators.
Parents are cordially invited to attend the Science Party being conducted by Grade 7 and 8 students at Rendezvous from 10:00 am onward.

The presentation used during MYP orientation session on 19th August has been uploaded on Curricle. You can refer it at http://bit.ly/2ii6zAk.
Please note you are required to bring your own personal badminton racket and spare shuttlecocks(plastic one)-1 for use in the next PHE unit starting on 10th August.
We will be commencing a unit on Rackets games and require your kind cooperation. Please take note of the following points.
1) The school and coaches are not responsible of your equipment.
2) In the event of you not having a racket already. Please kindly purchase according to your budget and need, we don’t need extravagant equipment, it should be just enough for you to grasp the concept.
