Personal Project Exhibition 2021

Fagerhaug International School

May 5th 2021 was an important day for our 10th grade students. The school hosted a formal MYP personal project Exhibition to showcase and celebrate the students hard work with an audience of younger students, teachers, parents and community members.

MYP students in their final year explore an area of personal interest over an extended period. It provides them the opportunity to consolidate their learning and develop important skills they’ll need in both further education and life beyond the classroom. It also helps them develop confidence to become principled, lifelong learners.


Students learn best when their learning experiences have context and are connected to their lives and the world that they have experienced. 

Using global contexts, MYP students explore human identity, global challenges and what it means to be internationally minded.

The 6 global contexts are:

  • Identities and relationships. … 
  • Orientation in space and time. … 
  • Personal and cultural expression. … 
  • Scientific and technical innovation. … 
  • Globalization and sustainability. … 
  • Fairness and development.

This year our students chose to focus their inquiry using the following global contexts:
