Lausanne's Middle School had the opportunity to honor multiple students across Fifth through Eighth Grade with an IB Learner Profile - October Community Leaders of the Month certificate.
Award recipients earned recognition because of their commitment to displaying what it means to be a good community leader through the 10 IB Learner Profile attributes, which empower students to be Open-Minded, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Inquirers, Reflective, Knowledgeable, Risk-Takers, Caring and Balanced.
"The IB Learner Profiles imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them," said Middle School Learning Specialist Julie Cooper. "The Middle Years Programme (MYP) places a big emphasis on the ten attributes that help create a strong community. In the Middle School at Lausanne, we embrace the IB Learner profile as the backbone of a well-rounded student and community member."
Middle schoolers are acknowledged and celebrated for excelling in these ten areas through submissions from their teachers and peers using the learner profile attributes as nomination criteria.
"By awarding students for their excellence in these 10 areas, we hope that they will see the value in each one and therefore the value each student brings to our community," said Ms. Cooper. "Everyone has their strengths and each of those strengths are important to our school, local and global community. We are proud to celebrate our October award winners for going over and beyond for their community and themselves."
