From the IB Coordinator's Office
I'd like to remind you about the upcoming International Baccalaureate Grade 10
Presentation Evening that is advertised on the school calendar, and give you a little more information about it.
The presentation is on Tuesday, 10/2 at 6 pm in the SVHS Student Union. The meeting will run for about 90 minutes and there will be opportunities throughout to ask questions.
I encourage both 10th Grade parents and students to attend.
The primary purpose of this meeting is to discuss your class choices and explore the complexities of the IB program. I will describe the program in general and explain how we run the program here at SVHS. We will talk about what it means to be either a full IB Diploma candidate or a Certificate candidate and the benefits that participation in the program bring to both our students and our school. I'll endeavour to provide you with
ideas to think over when deciding which IB path you might choose. I will also ask you to sign up for an individual IB counselling session to help explore the program further and to answer individual questions. This counselling meeting is mandatory for any student wishing to become a full-IB Diploma candidate.
When students sign-up for IB subjects, they are deciding on all or part of their program for their last two years of High School. Those choices they make with our assistance are therefore important ones, and we would like to have the opportunity to explore with you how families can go about making those decisions. I look forward to seeing you on October 2nd.
