is offered to all students from Reception to Year 7. The PYP is an international, transdisciplinary programme designed to foster the development of the whole child. At the heart of the PYP’s philosophy is a commitment to structured inquiry as the leading vehicle for learning. Six transdisciplinary themes provide the framework for the exploration of knowledge. Teachers and students are guided by these themes as they design curriculum units for exploration and study. In the process of exploring these themes, the students develop an understanding of important concepts, acquire essential skills and knowledge, develop particular attitudes and learn to take socially responsible action.
