At BIS we start with the project in autumn and end in spring with an exhibition. Throughout this half-year, students meet with the coordinator twice a month and learn about project management including time planning, responsibilities, scheduling tasks and actions.
Our motto is “We see, we do. We care, we share.” For me as the coordinator it is amazing to see how groups exceeded their goals, improved their communication, social empathy, research, self- management and thinking skills and worked passionately towards making the world a better place.
The Community Project has, to me, become a poignant reminder of how young people can care about and effect change in their communities. I am already looking forward to beginning this cycle again with our grade 8 next school year!
