The International Baccalaureate Diploma

In addition to the HSC, the International Baccalaureate Diploma presents a well regarded programme with an international focus, giving students a different experience with different opportunities.

What’s involved in the IB Diploma?

Theory of Knowledge (TOK) – The TOK is a matrix in which the distinct forms of knowledge specific to the subjects which comprise the IB curriculum can be evaluated critically, compared, contrasted, and integrated.

Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) – to be eligible for the IB Diploma, students must spend four hours per week during the two years of the course engaged in CAS.

Extended Essay (EE) – an in-depth study (4000 words) of a focused topic within a subject, the Extended Essay allows students to engage in independent research and pursue a topic they are passionate about.
