IB Schools Australasia (formerly AAIBS) was established specifically to assist schools in Australasia, providing a network of professional support, information and service.
The Association also organises annual professional learning events, advertises employment opportunities within our member schools and produces a newsletter and a variety of support materials.
The purposes of IB Schools Australasia are:
The income and property of IB Schools Australasia (formerly AAIBS) shall be applied solely in furtherance of its purposes and no portion shall be distributed directly or indirectly except as compensation for services rendered or expenses incurred on behalf of the Association.
Throughout our history we have been proud to support schools in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea.
We were recently approached by the IB to support some candidate schools in the South West Pacific.
With our constitution stating:
“Australasian” shall mean Australia and adjacent islands of the South West Pacific
We are pleased to confirm that should the need arise we look forward to supporting all adjacent islands of the South West Pacific including:
American Samoa, Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Guam, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, New Caledonia, Niue, Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, and Wallis and Futuna Islands.

As an Association of International Baccalaureate® World Schools, IB Schools Australasia has been formerly recognised by the IB and we work closely with the IB to advocate on behalf of our member schools. Associations can be an indispensable resource for both those schools new to the IB as well as those well-established schools.
All Authorized, Candidate and Partner schools in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Fiji are eligible to join IB Schools Australasia.
