Primary Years Programme (PYP)
The philosophy underlying the Primary Years Programme (PYP) emphasises global education, intercultural communication and international mindedness to support life-long learners. The transdisciplinary curriculum guides students to develop conceptual understandings, knowledge and skills of learning. Students work within units of inquiry developed around a central idea, using big ideas to structure a set of key questions using active student-centered guided inquiry. Each unit of inquiry reflects the Australian Curriculum Achievement Standards, embedding the different learning areas.
