The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), for students aged 3 to 12, is unique because of its academic and personal rigour. It challenges students to excel in their studies and in their personal growth. The PYP aims to inspire a quest for learning throughout life that is marked by enthusiasm and empathy.
The PYP is taught in over 109 countries (over 5000 schools) with the framework being uniquely adaptable to state and national standards. The Australian Curriculum is taught using the PYP framework to deliver the curriculum in a relevant, rigorous and engaging way.
At the core of all IB Programmes is the Learner Profile. The aim of the programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognising their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
