Glenferrie Primary School was accepted as an International Baccalaureate candidate school in 2017, and is working towards becoming an IB Primary Years Program school.
The IB program is an educational framework that aims to develop internationally minded people who, recognising their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to
develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and
lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
An IB education is informed by these values:
* centres on learners
*develops effective approaches to teaching and learning
* works with global contexts
* explores significant content
The IB Primary Years Program represents a combination of wide-ranging research and experience - excellent practice derived from a variety of national system and independent schools, and from IB World Schools offering a coherent programme of international education.
