About

The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP Curriculum) is an inquiry based, trans-disciplinary framework, that encourages students deepen their learning. Through PYP international school programme, students develop conceptual understanding of knowledge and skills - a way to actively participate in their education as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts.

Candidate school

Global Indian International School is a candidate school* for the PYP program. It is being offered at our Campus since April 2019. We are pursuing authorisation as an IB World School which shares a common philosophy of commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education, that we believe is important for our students in the primary years programme.

Highlights

IB - PYP Student-Centred Approach

Student-Centred Approach

We have designed our IB PYP curriculum activities keeping our students at the centre of the learning process. The idea is to encourage them to be involved through active participation and engage in an inquiry-based IB PYP program approach, even as teachers act as facilitators and observers in this entire process of knowledge gathering.

Transdisciplinary Approach

The PYP primary years program and its transdisciplinary method allows students to discover answers to key questions such as “who am I, where do I belong, what is the importance of the environment around me”. This method weaves a story which moves from subject to subject to teach the students the essence of each topic. The framework of IB program PYP directs students to apply the acquired knowledge to think, reflect, analyse, problem solve and evaluate.

Collaborative Learning

IB primary years programme is designed to engage students in projects and assignments, which teach them to work in groups, to collaborate and to share information with each other in order to enhance their knowledge. The PYP education programme focuses on the development of students as life-long learners. Learning happens in a fun and interactive manner and students learn the importance of teamwork and discussions to solve problems.
