The format of this ‘small group’ will be a presentation about the IB Program.  After the presentation there will be opportunities for questions from the floor.

The purpose of this session is to provide information for those who have children heading towards the high school stage of education or those interested in learning about educational options for the future of their younger children.

This session offers parents information about another educational option which has the added benefit of international study opportunities.
