Tuesday, October 24th at 17:30 Deborah Gutowitz, the Coordinator of the IB and IGCSE program at the Vittoria International School, will be outlining the procedures and the pitfalls to choosing which course and which school is best for you. Research skills as well as, deadlines, admissions tests and general requirements will be discussed.
Choosing what and where to study is one of the first significant life choices that our students make. As the protagonist in the process, it is both exciting and frightening for them. We at Vittoria would like to give our students the support and tools they need to make good choices and prepare strong applications.
The presentation is open to the Parents and Students from the Vittoria Liceo Europea (4th and 5th year) and Vittoria International School (IB) only.
The Vittoria International School has been chosen as a Pilot School, and the only school in Italy, for the IB exploration of moving final exams from hand written to Online Assessment. An IB Consultant spent two days with us, interviewing the Coordinator , teachers and technical staff in order to analyze possible advantages and disadvantage to moving the IB Assessment online. This is the first part of the evaluation procedure which may take several years to implement. The timeline is not clearly defined yet, but we are happy to be an active part of the process at its earliest stages.

Tuesday, June 6th at 20:30 we will be holding the end of school year party at the Teatro Ragazzi e Giovani in Turin.
The event has been organized by the Prof.ssa Nicosia, who during the school year coordinated the Artistic Expression and Communication Laboratory -theater, scenography, and script – “Don’t Stop looking at the sky” will be performed.
The story is loosely based on “Copenhagen” by Michael Frayn, which narrates the lives of a group of adolescents who find themselves catapulted into a terrible current event: The explosion of a bomb. From this premise an “explosive” performance is born, thanks to which you will be able to travel between war, conflict, equivocations, prejudice, and the atomic bomb and at the same time live the fear but also the ingenuity and hope of the young protagonists.
Entrance free of charge. The monies collected will be donated to Sermig.
