Our students are taught to understand themselves as learners and encouraged to take responsibility for their academic progress. Learning is visible, collaborative and personally owned by each student.

Their learning is informed by timely feedback, ongoing assessment and self-reflection. Student choice, flexible grouping options and the provision of a range of challenges build confidence and develop courage.

IB Primary Years Programme (PYP)

What is IB?

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.
