NUN Primary School Approach

NUN Schools essential educational philosophy states the awareness of the inborn characteristic of each child and the ideal to raise a NUN personality over this unique foundation.

When our school was being set up, we considered the fact that, with the NUN personality, our students should have the belief to be the people to think rationally, to take responsibility on the axis of the will, to pioneer action of goodness on the axis of emotions and to develop on the axis of action.  They should witness the hard struggle of raising “Rationalizing Hearts” as much as having “Rationalizing Hearts” and take responsibility as the NUN student should not be facing today, this geography and this community. They would be taking an oath to become brave hearts that recognize both their core self and also universal values, that respect and are respected, that own the isolated values and that inquire into the orders adopting the wrongs.

As we were looking for the answer to the question, ‘which mission would support these values in our vision’, we examined the International Baccalaureate PYP (Primary Years Programme), MYP (Middle Years Programme) and the DP (Diploma Programme). We decided that this value-based system emphasizing both the question “What?” and also “How?” was the best system to conform with the NUN philosophy and took it as our tool for our aim. The reason is that the IB mission expresses that “The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

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.”

The IB aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students with character who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating our common humanity and are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations.
