IB programme at Premier International
Feb 26, 2015-
Premier International School, Khumaltar, recently acquired a license to run the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). The programme, the first of its kind in Nepal, is for children between the age groups 3 to 12.
The programme was first introduced in 1997. Since then, it has spread to 104 countries and has over 1,200 participating schools. IB PYP incorporates local and global issues in its curriculum, and strongly believes in developing a student’s academic, social and emotional wellbeing.
Earlier this week, the school held an official programme to commemorate this initiation.
During the programme, Minister of Energy Radha Gyawali said that a major change was needed in our current education system and that introducing international curriculums like IB in Nepal was an important step in providing international exposure and opportunities to young minds.
Prime Minister Sushil Koirala and Education Minister Chitralekha Yadav also sent congratulatory messages to the school for introducing IB from the primary level. The
school’s director, Pawitra Limbu, said that they were looking to expand this programme beyond the primary level.
