The arrival of October opens the doors to the IB Programme in then Pre-School stage. As many of you already know, the IB Programme enables our little ones to face a significant challenge: to begin to develop the attributes of the IB learner profile. But what does this really mean? IB profiles represent a way of being, thinking and acting that promotes both self-awareness and personal well-being as well as care for other human beings and the Planet. The goal is to develop an international mindset that fosters improvement for the entire local and global community, making the world a better and peaceful place.
The attributes of the IB profile are 10: Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Good Communicators, Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-taker, Balanced and Reflective. Each time we recognise an act, behaviour or effort that displays these attributes, we award our students by placing a stamp on their hand and on their IB Star chart. Once the chart is completed, the student receives an IB Star Voucher that allows him or her to choose a reward.
In other words, we support our students with continuous modelling and positive reinforcement in the development of universal, timeless and lifelong values.
