Primary Years Programme

The IB PYP for students aged 3 to 11 years is an international programme designed to foster the development of the whole student encompassing social, physical emotional and cultural needs as well as academic welfare.

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.

The PYP is driven by concept acquisition and is inquiry-based. The body of knowledge studied has both local and global significance.

The essential skills developed are: the ability to conduct research, communicate effectively, function successfully in different social contexts, manage health and life and to think critically and creatively. Positive attitudes such as tolerance, respect and responsibility are fostered. Opportunities for meaningful action and social service are provided.

Six trans-disciplinary themes provide the framework for units of inquiry at each grade level and these form the school’s Programme of Inquiry.
