*Candidate School* for the MYP.

Gulberg Branch of TNS Beaconhouse is a candidate school and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy-a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

IB MYP: What is it?

An education that is grounded in the more progressive educational thinking of the time but also in the belief that the world could be made better through an education that focused on concepts, ideas and issues that crossed disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries.

 

The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) is a natural progression for the project-based approach at TNS Beaconhouse. IB MYP provides a framework of academic challenges for students from 11 to 16 years of age. These academic challenges rooting from the progressive educational thinking encourages the students to embrace and understand the connections between theory and practice focusing on ‘learning by doing’ hence providing them with opportunities to develop their potential, to explore their own learning preferences, to take appropriate risks, and to reflect on, and develop, a strong sense of personal identity in local and global contexts.

Subject Groups & Curriculum:

IB MYP programme consists of eight subject groups integrated through five areas of interaction that provide a structure for learning within and across the subjects.

Students are required to study the National Language (Urdu), a second language (French), Humanities, Sciences, Mathematics, Arts, Physical Education and Design &Technology supported by the Approaches to Learning (ATL skills) throughout the 5 years of the programme. The presence of the Concepts and Global context in the curriculum help the students connect their learning to real world bridging the gap between theory and practice; inquiring issues and ideas emerging from personal, local and global significance.

Our MYP programme is further enhanced and supported by our belief in our vision of ‘Learning without boundaries’ and holistic education; combining experiences from in-class learning, field trips and an array of clubs offered as part of the extended curriculum.

In the final year of the programme, students also engage in a personal project that allows them to demonstrate the understandings and skills they have developed throughout the programme.

Assessment:

Assessment in MYP is criterion-related, therefore students around the world are measured against pre-specified criteria for each subject group. Teachers may modify these criteria to be age-appropriate in the earlier years of the programme. Teachers set assessment tasks that are assessed internally in the school. External checks (either moderation or monitoring of assessment by IB examiners) are carried out on this internal assessment to ensure a worldwide consistency of standards. For schools that require official IB certification for their students, moderation is carried out every year.

Service and Action: Community Service

SA as a requirement and a fundamental component of the IB MYP programme, allows the students to use the city and community as their classroom where they can interact with public and private spaces and the living things that inhibit those spaces including humans and animal alike. This interaction with the spaces, environments and the community allows opportunities to the students to connect and contribute to the real world that exists outside the traditional classroom hence, empowering them as caring global citizens.

Students at TNS as per the IB philosophy and requirement, take action by applying what they are learning in their classrooms (Learning by doing) to bring positive change to someone’s life, an environment or the community as a whole.

  1. S&A allows the students to
  2. Become more aware of their strengths and areas for growth
  3. Undertake challenges that develop new skills
  4. Discuss, evaluate and plan activities
  5. Persevere in action
  6. work collaboratively with others
  7. Develop international-mindedness through global engagement, multilingualism and intercultural understanding
  8. Consider the ethical implications of their actions.
