As you are all aware we have the upcoming IB/CIS 5 year evaluation visit. IB is the organisation that offers PYP and CIS is the Council of International Schools. Both organisations have a long list of standards that they expect us to meet and during the 3 day visit in November they will be ensuring that we meet their standards. The visit is taking place from Tuesday 26 November to Thursday 28 November and there will be 2 x IB representatives and 2 x CIS representatives.
We have spent the past 12 months completing the self study which involves us reflecting on our practices. At last count we have collected over 3200 documents which we are in the process of sharing with the visiting team before they arrive. We have also had to write two comprehensive reports (some of which have been shared with the PTA and School Council) which focuses on what we have done since the last visit five years ago, where we are now and where we would like to be in the future.
The visiting teams will be meeting with students, staff, PTA members and the School Council to ensure all stakeholders are represented.
