Students spark off the spirit of enquiry at Apeejay School International

In the Pre-Diploma Exploration programme, young learners attempted to study and decode real-world problems



Making the beginning of the new academic session 2022, Apeejay School International – South Delhi launched the Pre-Diploma Exploration programme for all the students who have joined Diploma programme Year –I.

Themed ‘The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine’, the programme encouraged Diploma learners to understand the prerequisites of exploration. With the help of theme-based projects, both at an individual and group-level, students tried to understand the issues related to the crisis. Some enquiries included studying and analysing the ecological, mental and global impact of the war between these two countries.

Vedha Jangir, a student says, “I am just getting familiar with the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. I switched to Apeejay School International because of my preferred subject choices. In the future, I will pursue a course in culinary arts abroad therefore, I feel that IB will give me greater opportunities to learn and become a global citizen. 

She further added, “The Pre-Diploma Exploration was a helpful exercise because the programme made me settle into a new method of learning. I have been introduced to new vocabulary, themes and projects at school that are inculcating in me the spirit of international-mindedness.”

Another student, Ananya Gupta emphasises how IB learning was her personal choice. “I am very excited to start my academic journey. IB is very different from any other curriculum as it encourages students to opt for subjects which really interest them. The number of combinations and choices offered by the school are immense and that has opened up a new world of possibilities for me. I am looking forward to engaging in activities outside the school curriculum as well because that is one of the major strengths of an IB board. I dream of pursuing Biotechnology as a career. And, to introduce a new side to what sounds like a sombre field, I would want to have my own website and make it into a creative knowledge hub for Biotechnology.”

“What stands out for me in the school is the teacher-student ratio. It is excellent to understand each other’s viewpoints and engage with it comprehensively. Our classes are more like discussions and that’s why I love them,” she added.   

The explorations concluded with a showcase as students exhibited their work and framed an action plan to unite in making the world a peaceful place.

Molvika Khanna, a student says, “The sessions at school are very interesting and interactive. I hope to find my calling in this process soon. My biggest learning as of now is to become more open-minded and vocal about my line of thought.”
