At KICS we value the contribution every child brings to our school which makes our school a happy and harmonious place to learn and work. Learning is our core purpose and we champion learning within a safe school environment where people are helpful, considerate and respectful of each other. Positive relationships and attitudes are very important to create a cohesive community between our children, parents and staff.
In the Primary section we are lifelong learners and a culture exists in which learning together becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all. We are preparing children to be active participants in an inquiry based learning process, to develop their thinking skills and to be independent learners. The framework for our curriculum is the Primary Years Programme (PYP) from the International Baccalaureate KICS has been an IB PYP authorised school since March 2007.
Our Primary Years Programme is a curriculum framework of purposeful structured inquiry that promotes meaning and understanding and challenges students to engage with nationally and globally significant ideas. It is designed from LK- Year 6 and focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. We encourage the children to ask questions that they care about in order to seek answers they want to know. Our role is to guide the children in finding answers themselves and encourage new questions along the way
Early Years classrooms support children’s problem solving skills and nurtures their creativity, as well as providing rich opportunities for their developing imagination. We make sure that the children get the most out of the learning environment as well as focus on the development of strong literacy and numeracy skills.
We welcome parents as partners so that, together, we can promote high standards of learning, behaviour and attitudes to enable every child to be the best that they can be. We also welcome your involvement in all aspects of the school life.
I feel privileged to be the Head of Primary of a school which is truly unique and which has such a strong involvement with its community. I hope that our website provides you with a flavour of what our school has to offer you and your child. If you would like to find out more, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
I look forward to a happy and successful relationship with you over the coming years.
Ms. Maria Gebrial, Head of Primary
