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.

Students Attending School is Vital

It’s vital that students go to school every day - even in the early years of primary school

Schooling is compulsory for children and young people aged from 6-17 years

It is your responsibility to ensure your child attends school every day. School participation will help your child develop important skills, knowledge and values to further their learning and participation in the community.

Attending school every day also helps your child develop crucial social and emotional skills such as, good communication, resilience and the ability to work in teams.

Children and young people who regularly attend school and complete Year 12 have better health outcomes, better employment outcomes, and higher incomes across their lives.

Attendance patterns are established early - a child regularly missing days in kindergarten or in the early years of school will often continue to miss classes in the later years, and receive lower test scores than their classmates.

Daily school attendance is important for all children and young people to succeed in education and to ensure they don't fall behind both socially and developmentally. Children and young people who regularly attend school and complete Year 12 or an equivalent qualification have better health outcomes, better employment outcomes, and higher incomes across their lives. It is important that children develop habits of regular attendance at an early age.

Conversely, limited school participation is associated with a greater chance of dropping out of school, disruptive and delinquent behaviour and may lead to a cycle of rebellion against authority. These outcomes have later implications for employment, a range of health risk behaviours (drug and alcohol abuse), homelessness, poverty, welfare dependence, and involvement in the justice system.
