While the coronavirus may force us to keep a safe distance from others, it will not force us to keep our voices down. The only thing that will change the world is a bold and unified blueprint for a new way forward. We are very proud to present some of our PYP Year 4 students’ impressive efforts in support of Earth Day 2020’s climate change focus. Their final products showcase their detailed understanding of this global issue.
The enormous challenge, but also the vast opportunities, of action on climate change, have highlighted the issue as the most pressing concern for the 50th anniversary. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
IB Students Are High Performers!
The IB Learning Framework is increasingly being offered in combination with other national curricula across all ages. In our case at AISPP, we provide the Australian National Curriculum, intertwined with IB Learning Programmes. It encourages personal and academic achievement at the highest level, challenging students to excel in their studies. It also encourages personal, social and emotional development, encouraging young people to grow into well rounded, knowledgeable and internationally-minded citizens.
The latest research confirms that IB students often perform better, with many going onto secure places at top universities across the globe. IB World School students develop strong academic, social and emotional characteristics. They are also likely to perform well academically – often better than students on other programmes.
IB Is Proven To Work, With Many Benefits
Across all IB Learning Programmes, students develop approaches to learning skills and the attributes of the IB Learner Profile. This describes a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond academic success alone. They encourage students to be inquirers, knowledgeable, big thinkers, great communicators and principled, open-minded, risk-takers, that are caring, balanced and reflective.
Our Students Support Their Community
Established IB programmes (now in their 50th year) also encourage students to be active in their communities and to enhance their learning by supporting initiatives in their locality. This responsibility instills confidence, tolerance, respect, raises awareness and increases knowledge.
