Back to school


Welcome back to school!

We have started our new academic year with a learner profile tuning in. Students and teachers have been inquiring about all 10 profile traits and we will be creating our classroom essential agreements upon these common understandings.

PYP Evaluation- Self-study Update

We are currently in a phase of evaluation with the IB, who provide authorization to use the PYP as our curriculum. I would like to use this opportunity to keep you updated on the process. By far the most significant part of this process is the Self-study questionnaire, where we reflect on the practices and standards which the IB expect us to utilize to guide our progamme and consider if we are doing them in an effective manner, or plan ways to meet them more effectively. Our process started already during Term 2/3 last academic year when we formed six committees to tackle all 70+ standards, practices, and requirements. We have now started to collect our understandings into a report that is ready to be shared with others.  As per our Mission statement, it is important to us that all stakeholders in the learning community are provided with an opportunity to take part. We are going to be inviting you to Parent Forums where we can study these in more detail and provide feedback.
