The PYP Parent Educational Workshop
The aim of the PYP Parent workshop was to continue to involve parents as active members of our school community and increase their understanding of IB PYP teaching and learning processes.
The workshop focus was to make sure parents learn that assessment procedures and methods of recording, reporting are aligned with the IB PYP philosophy and objectives of the programme. It is central to the PYP goal of thoughtfully and effectively guiding students through the five essential elements of learning: the acquisition of knowledge, the understanding of concepts, the mastering of skills, the development of attitudes and the decision to take action. Parents and teachers interacted in group activities in order to provide their understanding of the PYP assessment principals.
