How does WISS inspire students to become lifelong learners?

Learning in the Primary Years Programme (PYP) at WISS is based on the PYP framework and supports a play-based curriculum for early learning. Through inquiry and play, children actively create meaning from their interactions with people and their environments. These meanings are revisited and revised in light of new experiences and further learning. Our approach allows children to develop critical thinking, research, collaboration, communication, and self-management skills in a creative environment.

Facilities and indoor/outdoor spaces are flexible and promote creativity, discovery, and inquiry. Students also play a role in helping to co-construct learning environments, as well as participate in establishing essential agreements for conduct. WISS believes strongly in students having voice, choice, and ownership of their learning. This includes being involved in designing, organizing and evaluating our learning spaces.

Throughout the PYP, students are developing agency and are encouraged and supported to take action that is meaningful to them personally, and to their learning. From helping to organize a flexible snack time and having choice in their play centers in Early Years, to participating in Student Ambassadors and Action Cubs in Primary, students are actively engaged in meaningful, relevant, real-life problem-solving.

Children are curious and capable learners with a sense of agency, rich in potential, bringing valid skills, preferences and understandings of learning. WISS ensures that our youngest learners have the perfect environment, tools, and curriculum to develop a love for learning from the very start of their education!
