In IB MYP, one of the key features is its emphasis on the interdisciplinary teaching and learning. This is the process by which students come to understand ways of knowing from two or more disciplines or subject group and integrate them to create new understanding.
In each year of the programme, MYP schools are responsible for engaging students in at least one collaboratively planned interdisciplinary unit that involves at least two subject groups. In Grade-10, students will appear for the onscreen examination of Interdisciplinary Unit which is an essential component and is marked externally.
To meet this requirement, Interdisciplinary unit study will be conducted in Grade 7, Grade 8 & Grade 9 during Term – 2 of this academic session from 26th November – 12th December 2018.
Kindly note that there will be a change in the regular time-table during this period of execution of the Interdisciplinary unit. Students will attend AS, PS, Arts, PHE, and Language Acquisition slots as per the timetable of a respective section. Besides this, Grade 9 students will also attend the Optional subject and Additional subject classes as per the timetable during this period. Rest of the slots on a given day will be dedicated to the teaching of the interdisciplinary unit.
Since it is a separate subject for which the students will be getting levels and a Grade that will be a part of their report in the final term, it is important that the students attend the school regularly during the aforementioned dates.

We have scheduled MYP Personal Project orientation for Grade 9 parents. The details are as mentioned below:
Date: Saturday, 27th October 2018
Time: 08:30 am to 10:00 am
The Personal Project is an important culminating event of student’s journey in the IB Middle Years Programme Year 5 (Grade 10), a requirement for achieving the MYP Certificate.
While the Personal Project is fundamentally a process of student inquiry, parents play an important role in supporting students through this experience. Please make sure that you attend this session so that you understand the requirements and provide the necessary assistance to your ward.
Techradiance’19 in association with IIT, Bombay had conducted a workshop on Android Apps Development where students from Grades 7 to 12 had participated to learn the basic concepts of app development in our school on 29th and 30th September 2018. The session for students began with learning to install Android Studio and jdk on their respective laptops. They learnt to enable developer options on their Mobile phones and installing virtual devices as well to check the functionality of their apps on mobile devices.
After gaining some confidence, students developed their own app (sending SMS, calling contacts, playing audio and video, registration form etc.) and presented to the facilitators as a part of the competition. Students had come up with creative ideas of app making. Students found it very interesting and were actively involved in working with the Android Studio software. It was quite surprising and interesting to see students missing on their lunch to complete their tasks. Participants without much background knowledge of Java were able to make basic apps of good quality.
A gentle reminder for the SS PTC which is scheduled tomorrow (6th October 2018). Parents who have received telephonic call and mail from school to meet subject teachers are requested to come with the students at the given time. Those who haven’t received an invite can take a prior appointment with the respective teacher and come for the meeting if they wish to. For venue details, refer to the following sheet:
