The Community Project focuses on community and service, encouraging students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in the community. The Community Project gives students an opportunity to develop awareness of needs in various communities and address those needs through service learning. As a consolidation of learning, the community project engages in a sustained, in-depth enquiry leading to service as action in the community.
At TIS, all students in the final year of the Middle Year’s Programme (MYP 5) are required to engage in and complete the Personal Project. It is a culminating experience, in which students apply their approaches to learning skills to complete an extended, self-directed piece of work. This required component provides opportunities for creative and truly personal demonstrations of learning.
