PYP Parent Workshop

Over 40 primary school parents attended the PYP Workshops this week at our Thu Thiem and Thao Dien campuses. The workshops discussed ‘Teaching for conceptual understanding,’ and challenged the concept used in many schools that teaching and learning is solely based on knowledge. We talked and discussed the importance of BOTH knowledge and understanding, as a way (for us all – students, teachers, parents) to make sense of the world in which we live. Parents had a great time getting to know each other, while deepening their understanding about the IB Primary Years Programme. Overall, they expressed their enjoyment, curiosity and eagerness in better understanding the AIS approach. This workshop is the first in a series and we look forward to seeing many parents at the next one.
