The role of schools in building community links

Schools have an important part to play in helping young people to feel safe in, and a part of, their immediate community. That’s not just their ‘school community’, but also the wider community in which they live and, in the future, may work.

Schools need to build bridges – and to get students to appreciate that there is life and a diverse community beyond the school gates

Schools need to be looking beyond their gates if they are to encourage students (and their families) to understand the local environment in which they are living and learning. That relates every bit to families and children that were born in the area, as well as those that weren’t.

Through community involvement, participation in special events and inviting people in from the locality to talk to children and share their knowledge, young people get a bigger and broader sense of who they are, where they are and how they fit in.

Schools should be working together with their community if students are to grow their understanding of the world – and feel a part of it

Through community enrichment, AISPP children are taught to act as responsible adults, to feel a greater sense of belonging and, by taking part in different cultural events, are encouraged to practise their language and general communication skills.

“A good example of a community initiative designed to open students’ eyes to what is happening around them”

Recently, Sarah Rhodes of Plastics Free Cambodia came in to talk to AISPP (years 3-6 students) about her work, and how students could make a difference in ridding Cambodia of the growing problems it has associated with widespread use (and disposal) of single-use plastics.

Already a hot topic, a lot of disposed plastics are ending up in the ocean causing horrendous problems for marine and plant life. Students learned that 1/10th of plastics in the ocean comes from the Mekong River. Phnom Penh alone has huge issues with landfill and waste management.

Through this initiative and others, AISPP students are being encouraged to think critically, to question what is happening around them, and to develop a sense of purpose and ownership. It’s those experiences that make community involvement in a child’s education so valuable and meaningful.

AISPP, an Australian Co-ed IB International K-12 school (Phnom Penh), is fast becoming one of the Kingdom of Cambodia’s leading education providers. Providing a modern Australian private and independent education, its 21st Century philosophy, state-of-the-art facilities and world-class teaching standards, make it ideally placed to prepare children for the global challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of them.

How can an IB education benefit your child?

Enrolling your child at an international school that provides the IB (International Baccalaureate) programme of learning can help them to grow in independence and to develop the skills and mindset that they need to succeed in our increasingly globalized world.

The IB Curriculum is global, liberal and challenging – and available at AISPP

Whether you’re a globally mobile family, or just a local, ambitious parent that wants your child to benefit from an education and qualifications that are recognised across the world, the IB programme is the ideal framework for them to grow and to succeed.

An international education and relevant learning pathway

The IB framework, broken down into 4 distinct programmes (EYFS/Primary Years, Middle Years, Diploma and the Career-related Programme) is regarded by many as the most rich, interdisciplinary and relevant learning pathway currently available.

In order to teach IB programmes, schools must first be authorized. Every school authorized to offer IB is known as an IB World School.

A winning combination providing unparalleled learning opportunities

AISPP believes that the combination of the IB framework and the Australian Curriculum provide an unparalleled level of learning opportunities for students to take advantage of, fully preparing them for global success.

At the moment, AISPP provides an IB education in the EYFS/Primary and Middle Years, but aspires to introduce the Diploma Programme and IBCP (Career-related Programme) in the Upper Years to its offering, very soon.

But what is it about the IB that makes it stand out as an education pathway?

The IB framework is not just about making youngsters better learners, it makes them better people!

It introduces them to the skills, knowledge and wider insight into what it’s like to live and learn in our ever-evolving, international world. It encourages children to work independently, to question things, to act responsibly and to start to think about how they can shape the future of a better world – for everyone.

Respected by leading global universities and colleges around the world, it’s an education that you can take with you, irrespective of where you live, work or end up in life.
