Murrumbeena Primary School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, authorised to teach the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). It is an internationally recognised programme and provides the framework for implementing the Victorian Curriculum.
The PYP focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer and life-long learner, both in the classroom and in the wider world. The Programme develops ‘internationally minded, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.’ (IBO Mission Statement). The PYP also involves the traditions of learning languages, humanities, mathematics, sciences and the arts. In order to promote this development, there is an emphasis on recognising and developing the attributes of the IB Learner Profile.

MPS Indigenous Education Overview
The main aim of the PYP
Is to teach kids to think internationally
To think in a way that is truly global
Protecting the Earth would be very noble
The learner profiles we strive to become
Thinkers and communicators are just some
The key concepts require thinking
Approaches to learning, they are linking
The unit summary is the central idea
The lines of inquiry make it even more clear
Agency means students have a voice
To engage in action , it is their choice
To bring to life their humanity
Research and learning through inquiry.
