It was an excellent chance to witness how responsibly our students engaged in an inquiry learning experience that was driven by their curiosity and interests.
Their independence and motivation to address the issues they found during their research were truly impressive. Their actions demonstrated the qualities of a global citizen, and we were proud of their initiative.
The students worked diligently on the action component because they understood the power of action over words and that individual and collective initiatives, along with an action plan, lay the foundation for significant changes. They understood that action is an application of learning and an opportunity for them to engage in service.
They also discovered that taking action can bring a shift in mindset, showcasing accountability or regard for oneself, others, or the environment, ultimately resulting in a dedication to engaging in further opportunities for action.
The artistic aspect was a huge success as we observed great talent among our students and their well-rounded abilities as young learners. They made artistic interpretations of their conceptual understandings showing their ability to transfer concepts from one symbolic language to another, and they also displayed the acquisition of the Approaches to learning.
The journey of the PYP exhibition was made possible by the crucial role played by teachers in guiding, supporting, and mentoring students.
We express our gratitude to all people involved for their unwavering commitment and willingness to assist grade five students in achieving their goals and developing into responsible IB students.
When people think about leadership, what often comes to mind are the concepts of power, decision making, delegating and innovation. Seldom does one think about care, empathy, kindness, and generosity – however these traits that highlight the emotional skills for successful and effective leadership, including by students at Northbridge International School Cambodia, are just as important.
What are the Primary Arts all about? Is it just a load of fun and messing around? It is fun, which is why we love it but there is so much more to the programme than some people might think.
Take a visit to our early learning spaces at Northbridge International School Cambodia, both inside and out, and you will observe a wealth of play activities happening. Students are interacting in playing on their own (solo play), playing with the same thing or in the same space (mirrored play) or sharing together (collaborative play).
