New web server and address for the OCC

The OCC has recently moved to a new web server. The new server is significantly faster than its predecessor and can perform more effectively in periods of high demand, enabling more users to access the site at any one time.The OCC has also changed its web address to http://occ.ibo.org and this will be used on all future correspondence with schools. The old address (http://online.ibo.org) will continue to function until December 2005.

IB Tsunami appeal

The IBO is responding to the catastrophe in Asia by launching the IB Tsunami appeal to raise funds to support community reconstruction projects undertaken by IB world schools in the affected areas.
We have the opportunity to use our schools’ local knowledge and their experience of community service (through CAS and other activities) to identify and support suitable projects. Some schools have already taken their own initiatives in responding to the disaster.
The IB Fund, which was established with tax-exempt status last year, will be used as the vehicle for making donations. We have an ambitious target of $US 2 million. Already large numbers of schools and individuals associated with the IBO have been asking how they can help.
Further information about the IB Tsunami appeal, including practical details of how to make donations, will appear on this web site before the end of Friday 7 January 2005.

Please check other news on the IBO website. Have a nice day!
