PYP Exhibition 2019-20

Central idea: Taking action transforms systems and communities

Welcome to the International School of Hellerup’s PYP Exhibition page for the 2019-2020 school year.

The PYP Exhibition is a culminating event in the journey through the PYP curriculum.  It is a team endeavour and an individual pursuit. Students have been given an opportunity to showcase skills, share understandings, develop Learner Profile attributes, consolidate knowledge, and take action. 

It is inspiring, tiring, and a highlight of the year for all PYP students, teachers and mentors who dare embark on this mighty challenge considering an extra layer of a struggle due to the COVID-19 effects and restrictions!  

On this page, you will find information and material about the PYP Exhibition as well as links to the websites that our students have created to document and share their learning.
