At the end of the school semester of 2016 some of the IB students from eleventh grade and future IB students from tenth grade gathered in the room A112 for a lunch and an exchange of experiences with the IB program and advice. Around twenty students were present at this third IB lunch meeting, along with two IB teachers: Mrs Kubern and Mrs Nagel.
At first, everyone introduced themselves by sharing their name, their motivation and their expectations concerning the International Baccalaureate. We, as future IB students, were encouraged to ask questions about higher level subjects, exams and papers, classes in English, the CAS program and the Extended Essays. Later on, former IB students who had finished their exams earlier that year payed us a visit to talk about their experiences. It was the very day they received their final results from the IB diploma, so we were the first to share their joy, pride and relief about the successful completion of the program.
The main message that was delivered to us was that IB is definitely worth a try. According to everybody who is or had been part of the IB program, the end result was so beneficial to them that they guaranteed we would not regret our choice to put so much time and effort into our education. This is an extremely rare and unique opportunity and it would be a shame not to take it.
N.B.: IB lunch takes place every semester and will be announced by your IB teachers.
