Welcome From Elementary Principal

Sam Cook - Elementary Principal

Welcome to ABA Elementary.

ABA is a wonderfully welcoming, warm and diverse community of students, educators and parents, united in working together towards the school's mission to provide "an international education of the highest quality to enable students to be confident, responsible, caring, life-long learners."

In the Elementary School, we value each young person in our care as a unique individual, each with particular strengths, passions, ideas, areas of potential and challenges. Our task is to nurture each child towards achieving their potential in all aspects of their development. Along with a firm foundation in the academics, we strive to equip each child with skills and attitudes that will enable them to thrive in, and contribute to an uncertain, fast-changing world.

The International Baccalaureate's Primary Years Programme provides an excellent framework within which we can reach our goals for every student's success. Its focus on authentic, student-centred, inquiry-based learning allows our children work collaboratively to ask and answer questions, contribute and explore meaningful ideas and develop a deeper understanding of the larger concepts underpinning all areas of learning.

Whatever your reason for visiting this website today, I hope you will get a glimpse of what makes ABA a truly special school.
