International Baccalaureate Theory of Knowledge presentations

Our students completed their Theory of Knowledge (TOK) Presentation at the end of Term 2. As part of this IB component, each student chooses a knowledge question and delivers a presentation where they explore all relevant aspects of theories and philosophies they have learnt and apply them to a real life situation.

In the Theory of Knowledge course our students are able to showcase their critical thinking skills and familiarise themselves with philosophy and metacognitive concepts that they can then apply to all areas of learning. The topics for their presentations included ethical and religious considerations around the COVID-19 vaccine, the role of artificial intelligence, or the genetic engineering of human embryos.

The TOK presentation is a challenging task and requires students to apply their critical thinking skills in a way that will benefit them greatly across the curriculum and in their further education.
