Our Teachers' busy 3 day Professional Development on IB. What a dedicated team of educators, always striving to improve their knowledge on new educational concepts.

WHY? What will the teachers be doing?
MWPS Teachers will be learning all about the International Baccalaureate.
We are very excited to be spending 3 days (Sunday, Monday & Tuesday) learning all about the
International Baccalaureate and how best to implement it in our school and improve the education we
offer your children.
The 2 presenters are from International Baccalaureate schools in Malaysia and China. We are very
fortunate to have such experienced, passionate leaders in education facilitate our 3 days . They have
been teaching in IB schools for many years.
Why are we becoming an IB school?
We truly think IB will enhance your child’s education.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people
who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
An IB education encourages students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong
learners.
The IB focuses on developing the kind of student who, in the struggle to establish a personal set of
values and a code of ethics, will be laying the foundation upon which international-mindedness will
develop and flourish.

Road Safety

Your children are very important to us and we want them to arrive safely at school.

Please make sure you are supervising your children cross the roads before and after school, or have them use the supervised school crossings located in Ninth Street & Tenth Street. There have been several near misses with children running onto the road to make their way to school.

Please if you are driving through the school zones be extra vigilant that there are small children around.

The Mildura Rural City Council have advised that they will be checking, so please be aware of the local laws signage and regulations for parking.
