What we want our students to feel, value and demonstrate

The IB PYP Attitudes are a vital focus in the development of personal attitudes towards people, the environment, and learning.

At the Australian School of Abu Dhabi, our students should demonstrate:

Appreciation: Appreciating the wonder and beauty of the world and its people.

Commitment: Being committed to their own learning, persevering and showing self-discipline and responsibility.

Confidence: Feeling confident in their ability as learners, having the courage to take risks, applying what they have learned and making appropriate decisions and choices.

Cooperation: Cooperating, collaborating, and leading or following as the situation demands.

Creativity: Being creative and imaginative in their thinking and in their approach to problems and dilemmas.

Curiosity: Being curious about the nature of learning, about the world, its people and cultures.

Empathy: Imagining them in another person’s situation in order to understand his or her reasoning and emotions so as to be open-minded and reflective about the perspectives of others.

Enthusiasm: Enjoying learning and willingly putting the effort into the process, thinking independently and acting independently, making their own judgments based on reasoned argument, and being able to defend their judgments.

Integrity: Being honest and demonstrating a considered sense of fairness, respecting themselves, others and the world around them, being tolerance of and sensitive about differences and diversity in the world and being responsive to the needs of others.
