International Baccalaureate – Primary Years Programme

 

The Faith Lutheran College Early Learning Centre and Junior School is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is pursuing authorisation as an IB World School.

The IB philosophy, which we share, is —a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The PYP program encourages students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

We are excited to deliver learning in a way that develops international minded, generous, principled individuals.

The International Baccalaureate Organisation outlines 10 reasons the IB PYP is ideal for students to become active, lifelong learners:

  1. Students are encouraged to inquire – fostering curiosity to ask questions and find answers.
  2. Real world issues are explored as students create meaning for themselves in our complex world
  3. Confident communicators emerge as students learn to communicate in a variety of ways, and in more than one language.
  4. Collaboration underpins student’s learning as they work with teachers and peers to plan, present and assess their own learning.
  5. Students learn how to be open-minded and respectful as they develop a deeper understanding of their own and other cultures – we call this international-mindedness.
  6. Critical and creative thinking is fostered as students develop knowledge and skills, and explore things from different perspectives.
  7. Students take action. Students make appropriate choices and take responsibility for their actions as they grow and believe in their personal success.
  8. Creative learning enables students to explore their imagination and respond to unexpected challenges and opportunities with agility.
  9. We work together. We celebrate “our common humanity and the belief that education can help build a better and more peaceful world”.
  10. Students develop into caring and responsible citizens who learn to express their opinions and explore solutions. Each individual can make a difference in their lives, and the lives of others.
