Learning Is Always Fun
ISK Elementary School follows the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).
The IPC is our International Primary Curriculum for students aged 5 - 11 years old. It is used by over 1000 schools in over 90 countries worldwide.
It is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum, with a clear process of learning and specific learning goals for every subject. It also develops international mindedness and encourages personal learning.
The learning goals are the foundation on which the International Primary Curriculum is built. The IPC provides students with subject goals, personal learning goals, and uniquely, international learning goals, and these are defined for each age phase:
Personal goals underpin the individual qualities and dispositions we believe students will find essential in the 21st century. There are 8 IPC Personal Goals - enquiry, resilience, morality, communication, thoughtfulness, cooperation, respect and adaptability. Opportunities to experience and practice these are built into the learning tasks within each unit of work.
International Learning Goals
International learning goals are unique to our curriculum and help young students begin the move towards an increasingly sophisticated national, international and intercultural perspective. Each thematic IPC unit includes an international aspect, to help develop a sense of ‘international mindedness’.
Subject goals cover the knowledge, skills and understanding of students relating to the subjects they are learning. There are subject learning goals for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, ICT & Computing, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, Art and Society.
