Our curriculum is framed around six themes that are studied across the various subject areas. These are:
● who we are
● where we are in place and time
● how we express ourselves
● how the world works
● how we organise ourselves
● sharing the planet.
These transdisciplinary themes are addressed through six units of inquiry at each grade level and this forms the school Programme of Inquiry.CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD GRADE-WISE CURRICULUM
IB LEARNER PROFILE
Within the PYP it is believed student learning is best done when it is authentic - relevant to the "real world" and Trans-disciplinary - where the learning is not confined within the boundaries of traditional subject areas but is supported and enriched by them.Our holistic curriculum aims to build student profile which will help them to engage activity in the community in line with the IB mission statement.
Inquirers: We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. We know how to learn independently and with others. We learn with enthusiasm and sustain our love of learning throughout life.
Knowledgeable: We develop and use conceptual understanding, exploring knowledge across a range of disciplines. We engage with issues and ideas that have local and global significance.
Thinkers: We use critical and creative thinking skills to analyse and take responsible action on complex problems. We exercise initiative in making reasoned, ethical decisions.
Communicators: We express ourselves confidently and creatively in more than one language and in many ways. We collaborate effectively, listening carefully to the perspectives of other individuals and groups.
Principled: We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.
Open-minded: We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.
Caring: We show empathy, compassion and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.
Risk-takers: We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.
Balanced: We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives—intellectual, physical, spiritual and emotional—to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We recognize our interdependence with other people and with the world in which we live.
Reflective: We thoughtfully consider the world and our own ideas and experience. We work to understand our strengths and weaknesses in order to support our learning and personal development.
International Mindedness is the awareness, tolerance, love, concern, caring and sharing of all things and living beings on Earth. International Mindedness is making children sensitive towards people, animals and the environment. It crosses all cultural, regional, race and religious barriers and helps to make children truly global.
International mindedness is amplified through many school wide activities like celebrating World Water Day, Earth Day, Festivals around the world and Independence Day of different countries . Students also engage in integrated activities that promote international mindedness through the units of inquiry throughout the year .
