Our facilities designed to fuel holistic development.
This learning goals focus on the facts and information children might learn, the skills (those practical abilities children need to be able to do) and the understandings (the deeper awareness of key concepts which develops over time). There are subject Learning Goals for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, ICT & Computing, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, Art and Society.
We help to develop these qualities that will enable children to be at ease with the continually changing context of their lives. Opportunities to experience and practice these are built into the learning tasks within each unit of work, and referenced at the end of every task to signpost opportunities for teachers to further develop them. There are 8 IPC Personal Goals – enquiry, resilience, morality, communication, thoughtfulness, cooperation, respect and adaptability.
The IPC is unique in defining International Learning Goals that help young children begin the move towards an increasingly sophisticated national, international, global and intercultural perspective and develop a sense of ‘international mindedness’. Each IPC unit has embedded within it, across the different subjects, learning-focused activities that help children start developing a global awareness and gain an increasing sense of themselves, their community and the world around them.
Pineapple Primary Years Curriculum is an inspiring International Primary Curriculum (IPC) that is specifically designed for primary aged students that helps improve learning in three ways: academically, personally and internationally.
During the primary stage of education, children are developing an understanding of themselves as learners.
They are also developing skills, knowledge and understandings that will follow them through their schooling careers.
