In their final year at Quest, students
participate in a culminating project, the Primary Years
Programme exhibition. Students are involved with an in-depth
inquiry, exploring multiple perspectives on an issue thatís
close to their hearts, and taking authentic action to make a
difference in our world according to IB Specialist Andrea
Geglia. At left, Chris Weis, student in Paige
Langswager's class, presents "Healthy Eating."
Beginning in April, students are
submerged in Exhibition for the last eight weeks leading up
to Exhibition Day. Among the topics students have
researched: the impact of concussions/head injuries on
students playing sports; the role of the polio vaccine in
preventing polio; how music impacts mood; how animals and
humans interact therapeutically.
"Clean Up the Creek Day"
was held in April where two students in teacher
Brenda Carpenter's class, Nicole Sarlo and Tom Podgers,
enlisted the support of their classmates as well as
working collaboratively with the Village of Hilton for an
action for their Exhibition project to clean up the Village
Park that runs along the perimeter of the school including
the area from the outdoor classroom to the Jennejahn Lodge.
