Service as Action
IB Learners strive to be caring members of the community who demonstrate a personal commitment to service and act to make a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment. Service as action in the MYP is an essential component of the IB continuum including both within and outside subject opportunities, leading toward a set of developmentally appropriate learning outcomes. All our students participate in service experiences through the Take Action Tuesday programme, the ESP Week and possibly within subjects.
Through the IB Learner Profile, subject study, key concepts, global contexts, approaches to learning, the personal project and service learning, the MYP curriculum presents knowledge as an integrated whole, emphasizing acquiring skills and self-awareness, the development of personal values and authentic action. As a result, our MYP here at IST aims to prepare students to be successful in school and to be active, lifelong learners.
Students completing the final year of MYP in 2019 at IST will receive an IST MYP Record of Achievement.
More information about the MYP curriculum can be found in the IST MYP Programme Guide or in the official IB subject brief (note, IST does not participate in the eAssessment programme).
