Learner Profile of The Month: Balanced

The aim of the IB PYP and DP Programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world (International Baccalaureate Organization 2013). Last month, we wrote about the IB Learner Profile attribute of being Communicators. With school holidays fast approaching, it is timely that we focus on another IB Learner Profile attribute – Balanced. As adults, we’re always trying to achieve a strong work-life balance, and for our children finding that school-life balance is just as important. You can help foster balance at home by recognising when your son or daughter might be agonising over their studies and encourage them to take a five-minute break outside to regroup. Balance is crucial for their mental and physical wellbeing, and you will no doubt see better results across all aspects of their lives. Exercise certainly isn’t an excuse to skip out on valuable study time when it is needed, but it is another component to the learning experience, to develop well-rounded individuals.
