Students From AIS Have Been Celebrating Their Success Stories In The IB Diploma

Year 13 students created some amazing displays recently to showcase the work they have done as part of the IB Core.

The Core is made up of Theory of Knowledge (TOK), the Extended Essay (EE) and Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS). Students must pass all of these to be awarded the IB Diploma.

AIS held its Core Celebration on Friday 6 November in its new IB Centre. The day started with Year 12 students listening to Year 13 prefects about their experiences in the Core. In the afternoon, the IB Centre was transformed with displays of work from TOK, CAS and the EE.

Extended Essays ranged from research into Shakespeare’s plays to understanding radar systems in Mathematics. In TOK, students gave presentations on a range of real-life situations, while for CAS they carried out numerous projects, including some to feed the homeless in Saigon and help flood-hit parts of the country.

Several Year 11 students also dropped by to learn more about the IB Diploma they will start studying next year, and parents visited to learn more about their children’s work.

IB Diploma Coordinator Mr Mark Beales said: “The IB Core is a great opportunity for our oldest students to step back and recognise the incredible work they have accomplished since starting IB. It’s also a good chance for other students to understand what’s needed to succeed at IB.”

IB is the world’s top pre-university course. AIS recently celebrated its joint best-ever IB results, which has resulted in students gaining offers at several world-class universities. For more, visit
