Thank you to everyone for coming out on Tuesday to our end of year Big Picture event. Our board chair, Achim Beck gave an overview of some key accomplishments this year including a number of goals from the school’s strategic plan as well as our outstanding Ofsted and NEASC reports. The reformulation of our Mission: Innovation, Collaboration Community is being actualised through all aspects of the school from learning and activities to administrative efforts.
The highlight was the unpacking of Halcyon’s IB and Beyond curriculum as our students discussed our growth, our mentoring programme, the Personal Project, interdisciplinary learning, personal learning, Service as Action, Explorations and our extracurricular activities.
The evening finished with a Q&A and parents were glad to have a better understanding of the many forms of learning taking place at Halcyon. The school’s commitment to developing student voice was also evident; a number of parents said it was the first time they had seen their child present!
