IB Learner Profile

Around the school and in the classrooms you will see a set of words describing personality attributes. These words represent what is called the IB learner profile. This profile represents an International Baccalaureate graduating student. It is a common set of values, developed in all three IB programmes (PYP, MYP, DP) that transcend international boundaries and help develop internationally minded people. IB learners strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective.

Students as well as staff are encouraged to recognise and support these attributes with everyone in our community. An easy example would be commending a child for being caring when looking after a new student, or for a quiet child being a risk-taker when speaking during a whole school assembly. It is the responsibility of all members of the school community to model these attributes. 

I am curious and enjoy learning. I try to learn and discover new things.

I learn about many things and remember what I have learnt. I use what I know to solve problems.

I think carefully and show initiative. I make good decisions and I am a problem solver.

I share my ideas and feelings in many ways and in more than one language. I listen well.

I tell the truth and I am fair. I share and play well with others. I do what is right.

I listen to other people and respect their ideas and beliefs.   

I care about people, plants. animals and the Earth. I help others and I look after the environment.

I have confidence to try new things. I stand up for what I believe in.

I look after my mind and my body. I try to stay healthy and happy.

I think about my work and actions. I know when I have done well and when I need to improve and change.
