The "DP Dancers" are PGIA Diploma Program students that have chosen to take High Level Dance as one of their three high level options for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
Every year, DP students around the world are assessed both internally and by external international examiners. Student results are determined by performance against set standards, such that student results truly reflect their abilities relative to their peers globally, not just at their school.
For DP Dance, the students are assessed on performances, dance investigations and choreographies. For the second year in a row, under the direction of Ms. Helen Sidiropoulos, these students have exceeded the world average!
So, here on our tiny little island in the Caribbean Sea, our students' achievements are exceeding those of their peers in places like the U.K., Switzerland and Japan.
Kudos to Ms. Helen and the DP Dancers!
