Celebration of Learning

Congratulations to our Grade 12 students

who have completed their Extended Essays or Senior Projects!

This process has taken them from the introduction last May to the final submission this month,

with many hours of work, learning and reflection in between.

Stop by the Library and the DP Lounge in the next few days to see examples of the work. Ask any Grade 12 student about his/her topic and what s/he learned.
