In a very unique year, the students successfully completed this unique learning process.
Traditionally at the end of fifth grade, SC students carry out the Primary Years Program (PYP) Exhibition, an instance in which they evidence various learning acquired throughout this initial stage of the International Baccalaureate program. In this way, they conclude their period at Lower School to enter Middle School the following year.
Miss Isabel Martínez, principal of Lower School, referred to this process: "We celebrate what they have learned in this stage and in all their years in the PYP. Every year the exhibition is a challenge, but this year it has been more than You are going to be remembered as the generation that made your exhibition online and in hybrid system .... you have come through despite all the difficulties and for that we are so happy and proud of you".
Mrs. Lorna Prado, director of Santiago College, expressed "Thank you so much for having been able to cope with such a difficult year, a pandemic year, that took us all through so many unknown roads and you were able to get through them. But the most important one was the Exhibition and you gave us such a wonderful surprise ... this is your first big step after a long time with the PYP program, so once again, congratulations".
We are happy to be able to share with you this year a summary of what this process looked like, sounded like and felt like in Gr5. We invite you to visit our 2021 Exhibition site. A huge thanks and a special congratulation to all teachers and mentors for supporting and guiding students in this process.
