DP Students Visit IB School in Changchun 预科班学生访问长春IB 学校
by Ms. Canan Cermen
DP 1 and DP 2 students had a truly unique and memorable experience collaborating with Changchun American International School (CAIS). This type of collaboration between IB schools is highly encouraged by the IB yet rarely achieved and we have done it!
On this 3-day trip QAIS students were hosted by CAIS students. They worked together on an environmental assessment of the Moon Lake Park (Jing yue tan). QAIS students also participated in teaching at an IB sister school, as well as chess, badminton, American football, soccer and volleyball.
The trip qualified as a “group 4 project”: a DP interdisciplinary collaborativeactivity in which students from different group 4 subjects work together on a scientific or technological topic.
Second, this was a CAS trip. Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) is at the heart of the Diploma Programme. CAS emphasizes helping students to develop their own identities in accordance with IB ethical and learner profile principles.
QAIS students were accompanied by the trip’s organizer, DP Biology teacher and CAS coordinator Ms. Canan Cermen; and DP coordinator Mr. Murat Gokalp.
The students worked hard and they played hard! We hope to collaborate with CAIS again in the future.
