METIS Compendium 2013 – 2014
We are pleased to have published our latest version of METIS. This bumper edition includes samples of our students’ research work from 2013 and 2014 and represents the sophisticated learning that is a part of our culture. Featured research articles for each of the IB areas of study are included. Public recognition achieved by this research is also celebrated. METIS is also available through the state library, so students with articles in METIS should be especially pleased with being published in this way.METIS was the wisest of the Greek gods and mortals. She was the wife of Zeus and the mother of Athena, goddess of the arts and wisdom. Whilst METIS is entrenched in Greek mythology, the word METIS may also be used to indicate intelligence and ability, ingenious and sophisticated thinking, sharpness of mind, inventiveness, alertness and multiple dexterities. These are the very characteristics that echo the IB ethos and are reflected by the students in the works presented here.
For us, METIS represents the endeavour of learning and the value of complex thought. A copy of METIS 2013-2014 has been provided to all students to take home to share with family and friends.
This, like previous editions of METIS which are available in our library, prove to be a valuable resource for students throughout their IB studies and into the future.
