September 15, 2018, the IB students of Khazar University Dunya School celebrated the
International Coastal Cleanup Day as part of their CAS project. The litter is currently at its highest level since records began and pollution is blight on our shores. So, in order to keep the shore of the Caspian Sea tidy, Khazar University Dunya IB School students took part in a beach cleanup last Saturday.
The participation in the event helped our students to understand the environmental issues of their own country. While joining the activity, they want to raise awareness among people to appreciate the importance of keeping the beaches of the Caspian Sea clean.
Khazar University Dunya School MYP and DP students showcased their talents on Friday, June 8 in front of their teachers and parents. Many students feel it is difficult to express their talents in school. Exams and group assignments do not always capture students’ unique skills or accurately measure the ability to apply skills to real-world problems. Arranging talent shows or different presentations will develop the students’ communication skills. So, we believe that the participation in the talent show organized by the IB students will help them to show their talent which allows them to develop their self-confidence.
We had 3 winners of the show judged by Ms. Zarif, Ms. Turkan, Mr. Giovanni and Mr. Kemran. The first place certificate went to grade 5 student Maryam Ibrahimova with her singing performance. The second place winner was IBDP1 student Shakir Abdullayev with his electric guitar performance. And the third place was shared by 2 dance performances of grade 5 students Nazrin Abbasbayli, Natavan Rzayeva, Said Jafarov, Javid Yusifli and Mirsaid Ahadzada.
PYP 4 students had their Graduation party on June 6, 2018.
The global climate movement is growing. As individuals, communities, and nations, we must work together to protect the only world we've got.

By planting trees and flowers, the students of Grades 5 and 6 at Dunya IB School help to accomplish this objective. Participating in “green project’’, Dunya School students want to remind us that Earth Day is our chance to think about ways that we can protect the Earth.

On October 12, 2016, pupils from Khazar University’s affiliate Dunya School participated in the V International “Trash to Art” Exhibition at Gala State Historical and Ethnographic Preserve. The exhibition displayed 25 works of art from 8 countries that had been made from household garbage and objects that were no longer needed. The main objective of the exhibition was to teach people the importance of keeping the environment clean and break them of the habit of putting unnecessary things into the trash can without thinking. The “Trash to Art” Exhibition has been carried out since 2010 as part of the “Clean Gala” pilot project initiated by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and “Clean City” Joint Stock Company. A “Trash to Art” museum has also been operating in Gala since 2015.
