DP Core 

 

Creativity, Service, Activity (CAS)

CAS complements a challenging academic programme in a holistic way, providing opportunities for self-determination, collaboration, accomplishment and enjoyment. It involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies throughout the DP.

Theory of Knowledge (TOK)

Theory of knowledge (TOK) develops a coherent approach to learning that unifies the academic disciplines. In this course on critical thinking, students inquire into the nature of knowing and deepen their understanding of knowledge as a human construction.

Extended Essay (EE)

EE requires students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the DP subjects they are studying. The world studies EE option allows students to focus on a topic of global significance, which they examine through the lens of at least two DP subjects.

IBDP Students at Brain Museum, NIMHANS, Bengaluru

CJC IBDP Psychology and Biology students, both first and second year visited brain museum on August 13, 2019. The visit focused on inter-disciplinary conceptual understanding of the anatomy of the brain and its functions. Prior to the visit, students were asked to read up the material on anatomy and functions of the brain, functions of the lobes of the brain, sagittal section of human brain and spinal cord. These articles underpinned the students’ understanding of the human brain during the session. The first half of the session comprised of understanding the lobes of the brain and their correlation with the functions through questioning. Students could relate the functions of the lobes with the disorders and diseases affecting the brain and the body. The second half of the session was an interesting hands-on activity. Students were given an opportunity to understand the anatomy of internal organs like brain, lungs, liver etc., by handling these. They could also easy relate to the diagrams that they drew in the classroom. The visit culminated in observing the specimens of the brain of patients having suffered disorders like hydrocephaly, Alzheimer’s etc.

She was also the youngest recipient in the award show held on the 24th of December 2018 in New Delhi, India. 


Kolar  - ESS, Biology and CAS Study Tour

Christ Junior College IBDP organised a study tour to Kolar from 4-7 February 2019. It was organised to meet different curricular goals in Environmental Systems and Societies (ESS), Biology and Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS).

The team camped at the activity centre of Centre for Social Action (CSA) at Kolar, Karnataka. It is a part of CSA’s Child Focussed Community Development Project, Pragati. Currently, the project supports 1817 families from socially, economically backward communities including 3036 children from twenty-two backward villages located in Srinivaspura and Mulbagal taluks of Kolar District within a radius of 8 to 35 kms.  Pragathi Child-Focused Community Development Project started its interventions in these villages to bring changes in the life of women and children. As part of this, the project started activity centre for Children and Self-Help Groups (SHGs) for women empowerment. The SHGs taught the members to have regular saving in the group. Further, it also helped them to avail loans to meet their family and business needs. At present, forty SHGs are functioning in the project area. 

The service-learning programme was an eclectic mix of different kinds of activities that catered to different strands of CAS for the participants. The IBDP cohort of Christ Junior College visited Government Kannada Lower Primary School at Gandhinagar village and raised awareness about the importance of health and sanitation through a mime presentation. In the debriefing session that followed the young children shared what they understood and how they could act on it. The cohort also whitewashed the walls of Government Kannada Lower Primary School at Murakanakunte  village in Mulbagal Taluk and painted murals which contained social messages and, as desired by the school, pictographs that could be used as learning tools.  Students also saw Self-Help Groups in action, interacted with its members and finally participated in the inauguration of a SHG’s cooperative bank at Hoskote.

A farm visit helped ESS and Biology students to better identify plants and crops, seek information on various irrigation processes and water conservation and have discussions on ongoing farming techniques and processes with cost involved.

This field work was in continuation of the hands-on activities for ESS and Biology students for understanding their Internal Assessment criterion related to data collection, execution of sampling techniques and learning environmental gradient. Observations and data collection were recorded through sensors and qualitative methods of various abiotic and biotic factors.

All in all, the trip will be cherished by all for a long time to come.
