The Personal Project


We would like to congratulate all our students who have just received their certificates for completing their Personal Projects.

In the final year of the Middle Years Programme, students had to explore an area of personal interest over an extended period. The idea is to give them the opportunity to consolidate their learning and develop important skills they will need in both further education and life beyond the classroom. It also helps them develop confidence to become principled, lifelong learners.

La Garenne sudents needed to complete three elements to be awarded their final achievement grades:

  • Product or outcome: evidence of tangible or intangible results: what the student was aiming to achieve or create;
  • Process journal: ideas, criteria, developments, challenges, plans, research, possible solutions and progress reports;
  • Report: an account of the project and its impact, to a structure that follows the assessment criteria. The report includes a bibliography and evidence from the process journal that documents students’ development and achievements.

The projects were assessed by La Garenne's supervisors and externally moderated by the International Baccalaureate organisation to ensure they met globally consistent standards of excellence. Well done and continue this hard work now you are in DP1 and studying for your Diplomas!
