EQUALS
PYP
The IB Primary Years Programme, for students aged 3 to 14 at JCSRS
focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the
classroom and in the world outside. It is a framework guided by six
transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge
and skills derived from six subjects areas, as well as transdisciplinary skills,
with a powerful emphasis on inquiry- based learning.
