Milgate PS is an authorised International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years Programme.

Being an IB World School ensures a consistent, school-wide international teaching approach that is inquiry based and aims to develop the intellectual, emotional and physical potential of every child, in a secure and stimulating environment. We are the only school in Manningham to offer this unique teaching approach.

Congratulations to everyone especially our teachers, Karlie Gooding (PYP coordinator), students, staff, school council and parents as it has been an exciting learning journey and will continue on into the future.


Andrew Macdonald | IB Chief Schools Officer

“On behalf of the International Baccalaureate (IB), it is my privilege to inform you that Milgate Primary School is to become an authorized IB World School, Primary Years Programme (PYP). Congratulations on your considerable accomplishment.

A certificate of authorization is being sent to your school.

As an IB World School, you are part of a global community of schools committed to developing knowledgeable, caring young people who will be ready to negotiate their futures successfully and make contributions resulting in a more harmonious and peaceful world. We commend your school’s educators, administrators, students and families for their active roles in choosing to offer the PYP. The positive results of this choice will become evident in your community as classes of PYP students graduate and undertake activities that enhance social, cultural and economic environments locally, nationally and, perhaps, internationally.

The IB is committed to the professional development of teachers and looks forward to welcoming your school’s PYP faculty members into the IB community of educators, where they will find collaborators and a dynamic global network of professionals committed to best practices in teaching students and in sharing those practices with each other. We invite you and your faculty to make your own contributions as an active member of this community.

Best wishes as you embark on your journey with the PYP. We look forward to working closely with you to realize our shared vision of a better and more peaceful world, achieved through intercultural understanding and respect.”
