If a student isn’t doing the full IB, do they consult with Ms. Lane and Ms. Howlett?
Donna Naufal Moffatt
35:02
IB Course Students will consult with Ms. Lane.
Donna Naufal Moffatt
35:29
This will become more evident through the presentation.

of pupil is taking math functions MCR3UB in gr 10, what IB math makes sense in gr 11?
Kathleen Munro Collins - Gr. 9 Academic Advisor
36:00
The presentation will go over the pathways
Donna Naufal Moffatt
36:48
It would best to discuss the best pathway on an individual basis with the academic counsellor. It is truly student and destination dependent.
Charlotte Mee
01:02:44
Please confirm, you have to take one subject from each of the groups 1-5. You cannot take two sciences?
Donna Naufal Moffatt
01:03:27
You must take one from each group. Group 6 is the only group where you can substitute an Art for a science.
Donna Naufal Moffatt
01:03:49
Or you can substitute for Group 2 or 3 or 4.
Mj Quraishi
01:09:00
better to work back from university of choice requirements?
Donna Naufal Moffatt
01:10:13
Researching university entry requirements is certainly helpful.
Charlotte Mee
01:14:39
Is there a minimum number of hours required for creativity and activity?
Mj Quraishi
01:15:27
if students goal is a science program at university, does the ext essay also have to be in science?
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
01:15:53
Hello Charlotte, it is 150 total Creativity, Activity and Service hours and the service hours that work towards the 40 ministry hours and 60 Ashbury hours, also counts towards the 150. Our rich co-curricular program allows students to reach these hours.
Charlotte Mee
01:17:41
Thank you
Donna Naufal Moffatt
01:18:41
Extended essay should be connected to one of your HL courses…perhaps your area of study.
Elaine Qiu
01:20:21
If the student are not doing the Full IB Dipolma, are they still have chance to take HL or SL course?
Shannon Howlett- IB Coordinator
01:22:00
Yes students can choose either SL or HL as Course students
Donna Naufal Moffatt
01:22:06
Absolutely-students can take HL or SL courses.
Erin Engelhardt
01:22:20
When will course selection forms be open in MySchoolApp?
Elaine Qiu
01:22:20
Thank you.
Kathleen Munro Collins - Gr. 9 Academic Advisor
01:22:37
Course selections open on Feb 1st online
Catherine Doan
01:22:39
Do clubs like Yearbook or Blazer Magazine count towards Creativity hours in the IB program? Do you need both creativity and Activity hours?
Tania Jordan
01:23:34
Is it difficult for someone who plays competitive sports (5 days a week) to take the full IB Diploma?
Shannon Howlett- IB Coordinator
01:24:18
All co-curricular involvement counts as CAS experiences
Catherine Doan
01:24:38
Thank you
Shannon Howlett- IB Coordinator
01:26:51
The IB used to mandate 150 hours for CAS completion. This is no longer required but serves as a guideline. Instead the CAS program bar of completion is 7 meaningful Learning Outcomes that they strive to meet, reflect upon etc.
Nihal Sherif
01:28:04
My son took Gr 11 Computer Science this year and so won’t be able to take the IB course. He’d like to do his Extended Essay in that area. Is there some flexibility to allow that? I don’t think he can stream back into Computer Science IB at this point.
Shannon Howlett- IB Coordinator
01:29:51
Hi Nihal, I would be happy to meet with you to discuss options if you’d like.
Nihal Sherif
01:30:10
That would be great. Thank you.
Shannon Howlett- IB Coordinator

Donna Naufal Moffatt - Director of University Counselling

IB is accessible to all students entering in Grade 11.
Nihal Sherif
01:42:12
I think I read that Ashbury students can take up to 3 non-Ashbury high school credits?
Mj Quraishi
01:43:01
how can we look up the PowerPoint, chat and the links provided in chat after this session is over?
Donna Naufal Moffatt - Director of University Counselling
01:43:19
Before signing up for any credit outside of Ashbury, it is important to discuss that option with your academic counsellor to see if this is a good option for you.
Kathleen Munro Collins - Gr. 9 Academic Advisor
01:43:43
You can view the links on the Student Portal https://ashbury.ca/student/
Sherry Fan
01:44:09

Cissy Kuang

Shannon Howlett- IB Coordinator
01:45:12
No we do not offer Math AI at the HL level
Andrea Kelly-Assistant Head of Sr School
01:45:41
Hi Cissy, for summer courses, best to speak with your academic counsellor for advice.
Mj Quraishi

Donna Naufal Moffatt - Director of University Counselling
