Primary Years Program



It is with pride that we welcome you to our School.


The young life of our School, having commenced in 1997, has so far proved exciting and challenging with teachers, staff, parents and families all taking up the challenge to provide educational facilities and school programs that strive to extend the learning outcomes of our children in the primary years, whilst promoting our children as 'Seabrook Kids are Friendly Kids' and fostering our ethos 'Learning with Confidence'.

What is the Primary Years Programme (PYP)?

It is a transdisciplinary programme of international education designed to foster the development of the whole child. All children at Seabrook participate in this programme.


The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the total growth of the developing child, touching hearts as well as minds and encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic development.


The PYP draws on research and best practice from a range of national systems with a wealth of knowledge and experience from international schools to create a relevant, engaging, challenging and significant educational framework for all children.


The PYP is one of three programmes offered by the International Baccalaureate (IB).
