The Personal Project is the culminating activity for the five-year Middle Years Programme. With it, the MYP students demonstrate what they have learned in the programme via a year-long, researched personal project. All students will focus their personal project through one of the six global contacts and Approaches to Learning Skills. Students celebrate the completion of the project at the May Awards Night.
The Personal Project can take many forms: an original work of art, a written piece of work, a piece of literary fiction, an original science experiment, an invention, etc. In addition to the project, the students must also maintain a process journal and write a Report in which the students reflect on the reasons behind their choice of topic, the links to the chosen global context, the process used to attain their goal, obstacles faced, and dreams accomplished.
