Personal Project

The Personal Project (PP) is an extended, independent piece of project work completed by each student in the last year of the program, Grade 10. Project topics may be creative or research-based and, ideally, they should reflect a student’s personal interest.

Students begin the PP process in January and finish in early September. The stages of the process are documented by a journal that is assessed. While there is some recognition of the project through the criteria, a student’s record of, research about and reflection on the process is a significant part of the final result. Each student receives a PP Guide and is expected to bring it to meetings with their supervisor

Through the use of a process journal, the supervisor will provide support and guidance through the PP process. Students involved in the Personal Project will also receive allocated time during welfare sessions with the Personal Project Coordinator and the Librarian to be educated about the processes of the Personal Project.

During this time, they will be issued with their student booklet and begin developing the frameworks of their project.

To celebrate the end of the PP process, the College will host a Personal Project showcase during an evening with presentations and performances.
