For this last month of school, we are featuring a student who embody the learning profile featured this school year: INQUIRER .
From the IB Learner Profile booklet, here is the descriptions:

INQUIRER: They develop their natural curiosity. They acquire the skills necessary to conduct inquiry and research and show independence in learning. They actively enjoy learning and this love of learning will be sustained throughout their lives.

Amanda has a very curious nature and always tries to understand lessons beyond what is taught in the classroom. She always tries to include extra information that she feels is important and doesn’t hesitate to do more than what is asked in order to acquire more knowledge.

Amanda wrote:

“To express and show my love of learning, I can become more of an inquirer by not just accepting presented information. I could question theories and facts. I could also think “outside the box”‘ also viewing matters from a different perspective then question if I would feel the same way should I be in a different position. Furthermore, I could become a better inquirer by asking questions from different sources/people, not being satisfied by an answer given by one source only.”

THINKERS: They explore concepts, ideas and issues that have local and global significance. In so doing, they acquire in-depth knowledge and develop understanding across a broad and balanced range of disciplines.

Justin shows knowledge through his proficiency in almost every topic that he is asked about. Whether it be history, biology, and chemistry, he always seems to show excellent understanding. I also know that Justin is trilingual, and he is even trying to pursue fluency in more languages. He even tells us about his sleeping schedule wherein he devotes most of his time to becoming a more worldly and knowledgeable person. He is one of the only people I know that has true passion and love for studying and always tries to learn beyond the classroom. Furthermore, he does not seek to only educate himself but also to educate others. He is always going above and beyond during presentations in order to share as much information with us as possible.

He Knows (almost) everything not only locally but globally

From the IB Learner Profile booklet, here are the descriptions:

BALANCED: They understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others.

Christelle is the epitome of a balanced student. She manages to organise everything, whether it be work, emotion, or activities. She knows how to manage her time wisely, which can be seen as an ideal tip for all students. Even if she has a copious amount of work to do, she knows how to pace herself and this is seen in her extracurricular activities, out-of-school activties, and school work. Despite her priorities of placing studies and family time over others, she still manages to be there for her friends even when she is busy. Furthermore, she manages to take good care of herself as she also places herself above other things when she knows that she needs a break from activities. All in all, she knows how to balance her school life and out-of-school life without delaying anything when deadlines are set.

Christelle is one of the most organised people I know. She always knows when she can do something, and knows how to manage her time so that she can even fit in the extra things in her life. In school she can be seen working actively by herself or among others and still can open her time to anyone else who still needs it. She never crosses over her personal issues with school work, or athletics. If there is anyone out there who really wants to organise their lives, talk to Christelle and observe how she does it. She’s so inspirational.
