After three years of careful planning, staff training and self examination by Springfield Staff and an external review by the International Baccalaureate Organization (I.B.). Springfield Preparatory And Nursery School, has been awarded the status of World School offering a Primary Years Programme (P.Y.P.)to children from Nursery School to Grade Six.
The I.B. programme, which has been increasingly adopted by public and private junior and senior high schools and is recognized as being Ideal preparation for colleges and universities in many countries, focuses on preparing students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning .
“It is never too early to make a good start in preparing children to take their place in a rapidly changing and increasingly international world” says Principal: Janet Murphy.”Springfield offers a challenging program which demands the best from both teachers and students and which is periodically evaluated by the I.B. organization to ensure that it continues to meet the expected standards and objectives.
A programme of Inquiry provides a balance between learning about and learning through six intra-disciplinary themes which children pursue each year in increasing levels of depth and complexity as they develop knowledge and new skills.
Since the ideas are related to their world beyond the school, the students see the relevance and connect.
The I.B. Learner Profile invokes ten qualities which inspire children to become knowledgeable, principled inquirers and critical thinkers, who are open minded and reflective, and possess an International perspective, which prepares them to step up to the plate in an increasingly complex multicultural environment.”
“It’s how we would all have liked to have been challenged “ concludes Murphy
