As we continue on our MYP Journey the past two weeks have been very busy for both the students and teachers. On Sunday 6th and Monday the 7th October all the teachers were involved in a Developing the MYP workshop allowing us to consider where we are at and, what our ‘next steps’ will be. Our workshop leaders, flying in from Australia and Indonesia, were very impressed and complimentary of our progress to date. It was a very productive two days.
Similarly our IB consultant, who oversees our development, has given us very positive feedback on our curriculum overviews. The following
link will take you to our MYP website. Here you will find an outline of MYP at OIS along with links that are open to parents including an overview (Subject Group Overviews) for each year of the programme, as well as policy links. Please ‘star’ this website and from time to time visit it as we are update pages.
From all the team we wish you are very happy semester break and if you celebrate Diwali, we wish you a very Happy Diwali.

This last month has been a very busy and productive month for our learning community, including for our parents. Thank you to all who managed to attend sessions ranging from Introduction to MYP Assessment, to MYP in Action, and Digital Citizenship. All of these sessions have intended to support you in increasing your understanding of MYP as well as supporting you, as parents, to better understand the digital world of your child/children.
Please find below the power point used as the base in the Introduction to MYP Assessment. Each of the three sessions unpacked a different summative assessment sample that is not included in the power point.
The last two slides answer the three questions that were left at the end of the Grade 6 session.
Many thanks for your continued support.
A warm welcome to our 2019/2020 academic year, to our returning students and families and to all those who are new. This Middle School blog allows you to see ‘snapshots’ of learning happening in the subject areas both within our classroom walls and beyond. In addition, there will be posts sharing information (power points etc.) post Parent workshops.
This week we welcomed our new secondary parents to a session: Introduction to MYP and Managebac support, held in the auditorium. This was an opportunity for all parents attending to familiarize themselves with the IB MYP framework as well as an introduction to how MYP at OIS – JVLR works. To those who attended thank you for your time.
Please find below the power point shared at this parent session.
Please make note of future parent sessions dates:
