PYP emphasises cognitive, social and personal development and teaches high level thinking skills that enable students to learn to critically analyse information. The programme is designed to foster the development of the whole child, encompassing her social, physical, emotional and cultural needs as well as her academic development.
Suzanne Brewin is the Head of the Junior School at Diocesan School for Girls. She sees her role as ensuring all girls view themselves as successful learners, from the time they begin their education in the Foundation Centre until they graduate to the Junior High School and beyond.
"We encourage all students to lead balanced lives and to find the joy in all that they do both inside and outside the classroom."
