Legacy Day Highlights
Posted on 05/02/2022

Tuesday, April 19th, marked the culmination of the Middle Years Programme (MYP) Community project aka Legacy Day. Over the last two and a half months, the entire ROMS 8th grade class has engaged in the project at Royal Oak Middle School through their flex classes. Students worked in small group trios, as outlined in the guidelines set forth by the International Baccalaureate's MYP, on projects that they were passionate about and with the aim of conducting an activity or advocating for a community group in service of others.

Students came ready to present their projects throughout the day to their sixth and seventh grade peers. The work ROMS students completed was impressive with topics ranging from saving animals who are abused by neglect and fighting, random acts of kindness campaigns, advocacy for recycling and veterans awareness. Students also engaged in advocacy for women's rights and LBGTQIA rights, city and school beautification, pollution awareness, advocacy for female products in school restrooms, and advocacy for charitable organizations. One group even made a short film!

The 8th grade students at ROMS have left their marks on the community with great and impactful ideas and actions that support the tenets of the MYP which is at the forefront of what we do here at ROMS. Onward!
