Churchie has been authorised by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organisation as an IB World School for the delivery of the Diploma Programme and the Primary Years Programme.
The Primary Years Programme is currently being offered to students in the Prep School from Reception to Year 6. The Diploma Programme will commence in 2018 as an academic pathway alongside the existing Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
The International Baccalaureate was introduced in 1968 with an original purpose of facilitating the international mobility of students, by providing students with a curriculum and qualification recognised by universities around the world. In this sense, the IB augments Churchie’s focus on internationalisation, providing students with increased opportunities to be connected with the global community and pursue international study and career options.
In addition to an international focus, there are many other synergies between Churchie’s existing curriculum approach and the IB. These include research-based approaches to teaching, professional educators of the highest standard, and student learning at the core.
