Director of Studies
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Tesla is officially a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme! This means the school is on its way to becoming a fully authorised PYP school. The entire process from a school first deciding to offer the PYP programme, applying for Candidacy and working towards full authorization usually takes between 2 and 3 years. At Tesla we look forward to continuing this exciting journey as we feel inquiry and the programme’s concept driven curriculum will best prepare our students for a successful future in an ever-changing world.
As a community of life-long learners and educators, the PYP’s concept driven, inquiry-based approach provides students with the tools and strategies to become successful global citizens. Its focus is on developing balanced, knowledgeable and well-rounded students and prepares them for future life.
The focus of the PYP framework is aligned with Tesla’s mission and vision: Shaping the future through education, and developing confident and capable global citizens. Our primary and senior management teams have been working tirelessly on how best to implement the Primary Years Programme from Years 1 to Year 4 and next year our New Year 5.
IB World Schools share a common philosophy-a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Programme (IBCP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org.
Mission Statement from the IB
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peacefulworld through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences can also be right.
All the best to you and thank you.
As announced above, Tesla is officially a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. Students can learn in a comfortable and dynamic environment. The combination of literacy and the arts help to develop students’ unique potential.
After 9 weeks of the Understand Yourself project, students were allowed to participate in a Film Session to help them explore their emotions through the animated movie Emotion. Good role models in the film can have a positive effect on students, helping them realize that life needs joy and love for family and friends.
Grade 2 students have started to get acquainted with the subject of ICT- Robotic Application. With the theme of Fantastic Zoo, the 2nd graders are working on the robot Big Mouth – a robot with large teeth that can close and open like crocodiles, whales. Grade 2 achievement will be finalized and updated to parents later.
Grade 3 continues to learn ICT with a game to find the correct answers in Mr. Carlos’ class.
During the first three weeks of the new school year, parents everywhere complain about the unreasonable new program of the Ministry of Education.
At Tesla, parents can confidently entrust us with the mission of educating our students. Children get acquainted with letters at an early age.
Through activities, students have stimulated memory to words, not only in Vietnamese but also in English. Therefore, helping students get acquainted with the learning environment to prepare for grade 1.
