PYP to MYP: Orientation Session Pathways World School, Gurgaon
As another academic year ends, a very important transition phase awaits the students of PYP 5: the transition from being Primary School Students to becoming Middle School Students.
To familiarize the PYP5 Parents and students with this important transition to the Middle Years Programme, and structures and routines practiced at Middle School, a Virtual Orientation Session was held for them on Monday, 26th of April 2021, from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
The PYP5 Parents attended the orientation with their children to get a glimpse of what MYP holds for them in the next Academic Year. Ms. Sonya G. Mehta (School Director), Ms. Monika Bajaj (Middle School Principal), and Ms. Devika Datta Elvin (Grade Coordinator MYP1) took the parents through the similarities and differences between PYP and MYP, and the structures and routines in Middle School.
Various students from MYP 1, Hapsha Rather, Rhea Grewal and Arnav Agarwal joined the session and gave their perspectives on the opportunities they received in Middle School, the sense of well-being in MS and also gave the upcoming batch an insight into 'A day in the life of an MYP1 student'. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session where initial queries of the PYP5 parents were addressed by the Middle School Team.
It was heartening to note that the parents went back feeling 'less nervous' and 'more excited' about the upcoming transition. The students eagerly looked forward to climbing up the ladder and begin their journey as MYP students.
