Our Junior School provides a welcoming, nurturing environment from Kindergarten to Grade 5 in which young minds are actively engaged and motivated to learn. In the Primary Years Programme (PYP), a balance is sought between the acquisition of essential knowledge and skills, the development of conceptual understanding, the demonstration of positive attitudes, and the importance of taking responsible action. Our focus is on the growth of the whole child, encompassing not only the academic needs of the students but also their social, emotional, physical and cultural development.
The inquiry-based nature of the PYP encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning through inquiry, making predictions and testing beliefs and assumptions. They seek out information and collaborate with others in interpreting their findings; they elaborate on ideas and delve deeper into problems, and in so doing, create and evaluate solutions.
With access to dedicated specialty classrooms for STEM, Visual & Performing Arts, and French, every day is unique. In addition to the daily curriculum, co-curricular offerings provide students with an enriched learning environment, such as Coding, Story Writing and Baking Clubs.
Our IB PYP Physical & Health Education programme develops motor skills, coordination and motivation all while inspiring a love of movement, teamwork and wellbeing. In addition to regular classes, starting in Grade 3, students can also take advantage of our Titan Athletics programming to experience the benefits of physical fitness, teamwork and the satisfaction derived from competition.
