13 SEPTEMBER 2019 - MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF PRIMARY
This week the haze-levels were such that we had to limit our outdoor activities and spend our breaks and lunch times indoors. Although we did have to adapt, it did not significantly hinder the learning that we had planned for the week. It is, of course, a situation that we would ideally like to avoid, but this is obviously not under our control. We hope for the haze levels to go down soon so we can resume normal operations again. If you have any questions about our haze-procedures, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

This Friday, I was asked to speak to the lecturers of the School of Education at Taylor's University on the characteristics of international curricula. The programmes of study that are used by international schools that have not been designed for a particular region or country. The biggest players in that area are the International Bachelorette (the IB), offering the PYP (for Primary), the MYP (for Middle Years, KS2) and The IB (for college years leading up to university) and the curricula from Fieldwork Education, the IEYC (For Early years), the IPC (for Primary) and the IMYC (for middle years).

The IPC (International Primary Curriculum) is of course most known to our community as we have started to implement this curriculum since January 2018 onwards. The international curricula all have a number of things in common.

First off, on top of knowledge and understanding, there is a real emphasis on teaching skills. This from a perspective that a strong skill set offers the best chance of being successful in this ever-changing world we are living in. International Curricula also focus on helping students to grow a mind-set that is helpful for studying as well as performing as a professional. Thinking in this regards compliments the Taylor's RECIPE and Taylor's outcomes.

Thirdly, International Curricula subscribe to the notion that children who understand their learning approaches and learn how they learn best, will come up with better results.I also talked to the lecturers about the important part of enquiry, research, and presentation. Lastly, International Curricula are designed in a way that the local context can always be taken into account.
