DiFrancesco Play - Music Room

The play Dear Anna, Dear Peter tells the story of Governor Peter von Scholton and his colored common law wife Anna Heegaard.  The play explores the time of 1848 when he was tried for his role in Emancipation in these islands, through a series of letters they write back and forth to each other.  A lower elementary parent, Ayesha Morris, is playing the role of Anna Heegaard and made this opportunity possible for our school.

We are very excited to welcome 22 students from a school in Denmark to the PGIA on Tuesday.  These students in grades 9-11 will be spending a full day with our kids in their classes.  This school group is on a 10 day adventure to the Virgin Islands to explore Danish and Virgin Island history, as well as the Caribbean.  

The visiting students will arrive at about 9am (I am picking up one group at 8:30amand the next group at 9am) and they will attend all classes with their host. The list of PGIA buddies is attached.  Thank you for being PGIA ambassadors!

Astronomy End Session Presentation

I would like to invite the entire VIMSIA family, along with the community at large, to join the Astronomy EndSession for the final Astronomy Night event of the school year from 7-9pm on Tuesday, June 7 under the Solar Awning.

We will have the planetarium, spectral analysis of gases, and information on constellations and the planets - including a Solar System to scale!

The timing is conveniently scheduled, following the Storytelling EndSession culminating performance from 6-7pm on Tuesday in the Music Room, which allows for a nice transition into the Astronomy Event.  

We look forward to a wonderful evening highlighting the achievements of our students; see you (and your friends) there!!

Sincerely - Andy Palmer, Astronomy End Session Teacher

Middle Years Programme Orientation

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme is PGIA's educational methodology for grades 7 through 10.  It provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world.

This session is required for 6th year students entering 7th grade next year and their parents.  Anyone else is most welcome to attend.  Please join us to learn more about what your child's life will by like in the MYP, and how you can be a partner in your child's MYP years.

Education is not the learning of facts.
It’s rather the training of the mind to think.

pour l'amour de l'art - DP Student Art Show

The IB Diploma Programme visual arts course encourages students to challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries. It is a thought-provoking course in which students develop analytical skills in problem-solving and divergent thinking, while working towards technical proficiency and confidence as art-makers. In addition to exploring and comparing visual arts from different perspectives and in different contexts, students are expected to engage in, experiment with and critically reflect upon a wide range of contemporary practices and media.
— IB Diploma Programme Subject Brief

Please join DP Arts Teacher Ms. Jana Ferguson and her DP HL Seniors to celebrate these students' creativity and hard work in PGIA's first annual Senior Arts Show.
