Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
It’s a pleasure to introduce myself as BIS DP coordinator. Bedayia has acquired its authorization as an IB school in the the year 2018 to offer the Diploma Programme. We started our 1st cohort with 20 students in DP1, it’s a real pride to be able to help our students to learn in the challenging and unique IB Diploma Programme that will prepare our students for success at university and beyond.
The Diploma Programme (DP) is a two-year course of study offered to students in grades 11 and 12. It consists of six subject groups: Language and Literature, Language Aquisition, Individuals and Societies, Sciences, Mathematics and Arts. Students choose a subject from groups 1-5 and may choose either an arts subject or another subject from groups 2-4. Students choose three of these subjects to study in depth at a higher level.
In addition to their subject choices, students are required to participate in the core. The core is what really makes the DP unique. Students engage in a piece of formal research that equips them with the skills of scholarship that are so essential to success at university. Theory of knowledge is a course in critical thinking, which ties the curriculum together as students study how knowledge is gained across subjects. And through the Creativity, action, service (CAS) programme, students participate in experiential learning through creative and physical activities and service to others. Taken together, the core and the breadth and depth offered by the student’s subject choices make the DP a unique and effective educational path to creating principled, lifelong learners with the skills, passion and knowledge to understand and shape the world.
It’s truly a privilege to be part of BIS community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.
Wishing you a successful academic year!
Mrs./ Rania Aly
