As we learn more about the IB primary year programme it becomes more and more evident how substantial components of the program are deeply rooted in our GSP community.
The IB Learner profile describes learner attributes that are considered essential to develop into productive learners and well rounded citizens.
One of the learner profiles is "Caring: I care about people, plants, animals and the earth. I help others and care for people and the world."
While we will formally introduce the learner profiles to students and families over time, we are also looking for opportunities to make that connection now.
When I saw our students rally for the Bukesa orphanage this week I witnessed "caring in action". With short notice our 4th grade students were able to collect supplies for Frau West to take to the orphanage. So last week Frau West left with 2 extra bags of soccer balls, cleats, and jerseys.I am sure that children at the Bukesa orphanage will put them to good use!
I am so proud to be part of our GSP community and all the things we can accomplish together!!
