As per the email sent out last week, the staff at St. Jude’s is conducting a self-study. The self-study is a requirement of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). The self-study is taking place now as it is almost 4 years since our IB evaluation visit. The purpose of the self-study is to ensure that we are maintaining the IB programme standards and practices. We are asking that parents and guardians with students in JK to grade 6 take the time to complete a small survey by Friday, October 21. Your input will form part of the self-study report that is submitted to the IBO and will help direct further action that needs to be taken by staff at our school. The survey link has been posted below! We thank you in advance for your participation!
