Grade 10 Personal Project Exhibition

As a Christian IB school, we are educating our students to be aware of many important issues that are happening around them and in the real world. We also assist them to find their personal interest and passion, thus leading them to find their calling and bring redemptive restoration in many things. One of the ways to achieve these are through the Personal Project.

The Personal Project (PP) is the capstone of the Middle Years Program (MYP) completed in Grade 10, which culminated in the PP Exhibition. In the PP Exhibition, students displayed their projects in booths according to their personal interest and what they have researched for the past nine months. Our Grade 10 students engaged in a self-directed inquiry and demonstrate the ability to generate new insights and deeper understandings through an in-depth investigation.  The skills, attitudes, and knowledge required to complete this project over an extended period of time will allow students from SPH LV to flourish as life-long learners.

The Personal Project focuses on ‘learning how to learn’ and develops many skills such as communication, collaboration, organization, self-management, reflection, research, informational literacy, media literacy, creative and critical thinking, and transfer of learning. It also fosters intercultural understanding and global engagement—essential qualities for young people today.

This year at SPH Lippo Village, we have seventy-five students completing the Personal Project. There were many inspiring projects, covering a variety of topics: suicide prevention, empowering the disabled community, healthy food, sustainable and environment-friendly technology, music therapy, body shaming campaign, Indonesian cultural diversity, and many more.

One of the projects that caught people’s attention was from Justina Odellya Rudyan, who made a wind turbine design. She also used a recycled material to create the wind turbine. Her goal was to create a functional wind turbine that can help financially struggling families ease the burden of expensive electricity bills, whilst promoting the use of clean renewable energy.

Teachers, other students, and parents came to celebrate students’ projects. They asked questions and gave a personal assessment on every project. Parents’ and teachers’ support also played an important part to make this exhibition happening. Many of the students also acknowledged the support that their teacher mentors and parents gave.

This year’s PP Exhibition has been a great experience for the whole SPH community. We believe that Personal Project was not only beneficial to fulfill academics requirement, but also to create a life-changing experience in students’ lives so that they can also make an impact later on. We are excited to see more inspiring projects next year!
