Primary School Events
1. Primary PD
On October 11 & 12, 2021, the PYP team participated in a 2-day virtual workshop on Approaches to Learning (ATL). The ATLs consist of five interrelated skills: self-management, social, communication, thinking, and research skills. These skills are fundamental to developing our students’ ability to be self-regulated learners and support students’ sense of agency. The ATLs also complement the Learner Profile attributes.
