IB Primary Years Programme
At Cypress Park Primary World School, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme is for students from Kindergarten to Grade Three. Its primary focus is on inquiry and concept-based learning; the students are actively involved and engaged in their learning while developing important research and communication skills.
Cypress Park Primary
Located inside our school building;
Cypress Park Preschool is available for children ages 30 months to 5 years of age. The program offered introduces children to the concepts of art, science, language and the value of play for learning.
Cypress Park Kids Club provides a dynamic, fun-filled and educational after-school program for children. Our well-trained and qualified staff make use of the Cypress Park school playground, gym and all our own equipment to provide a safe and fun environment for children to participate in, with inside/outside play, active games, and arts and crafts. Transportation from West Bay Elementary is available.
French & Music
All students within the IB programme are involved in a French and Music curriculum that consists of 90 minutes of instruction each week. At Cypress Park we develop students’ French language through songs, poetry, games, dialogues and plays. Our focus is on oral language while also developing an appreciation of the French cultures in Canada and around the world.
Cypress Park has an iPad cart filled with a full class set and our computer center is equipped with eight computers.
Our classrooms have a proxima and laptop computer to further facilitate the research required in our units of inquiry.
Our community connection to the Obakki foundation has led us to fundraise successfully for the development of a well and school supplies in Riak Dor. We have continued our connection this year by fundraising for a second well in a nearby village.
We have a sister school in East Vancouver and each school year several clothing drives and fundraising events are planned to help meet the needs of their learning community.
