Action and Agency

As a PYP school, we support students to develop the Approaches to Learning skills and the Learner Profile attributes they need to be responsible, self-motivated learners.  We provide students with opportunities to voice their own opinions, make choices,  and take ownership for their learning.

Action is at the centre of agency.  True action is authentic, meaningful, mindful, responsible, and responsive.  Examples of action include a change in attitude, participating in a group or activity, initiating a new project, changing a behaviour, advocating for a cause, and educating others.
