Workshop for PYP Parents30 Nov 2018
On November 21, the workshop “Introduction to the Primary Years Programme (PYP)” was held for the parents of our PYP pupils. The main idea of the workshop was to familiarize parents with the IB PYP educational philosophy, teaching methodology and learning approaches. The session was organized in an interactive and collaborative way so parents had a great chance to actively participate in the discussions and different tasks. It was useful for the school to get parent feedback regarding their understanding of the PYP curriculum framework. Here is what some of the parents had to say about the workshop: "Now I realize that at PYP, students can share their ideas and learn through different ways", "I appreciate this high level of interaction between students and teachers". These kinds of events will be held once a semester and will ensure that all parents gain a deeper understanding of the PYP.
