SUNNYBROOK SCHOOL

Sunnybrook School is a fam­ily run school that was founded in 1952 by Dr. Irene Davy’s mother. “I love com­ing to school in the morn­ing; each day is so full of prom­ise for our stu­dents,” says Dr. Davy.

Dr. Davy in­tro­duced the In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate Pri­mary Years Pro­gramme (IB PYP) to Sunnybrook in 1999, and quickly be­came very in­volved with the IB Board. “I am so for­tu­nate to work with col­leagues in IB, to de­velop cur­ricu­lum and train teach­ers around the world. Dur­ing my time on the IB Board, I was able to learn from in­spir­ing ed­u­ca­tors and also have an im­pact on the de­vel­op­ment of pro­grams. The IB PYP gives our school an ef­fec­tive frame­work for cre­at­ing op­ti­mal learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences for our stu­dents.”

De­vel­op­ing the skills and dis­po­si­tions of a glob­ally com­pe­tent in­di­vid­ual is a goal for Dr. Davy and her fac­ulty. This ap­proach be­gins in JK, teach­ing and mod­el­ling think­ing skills to de­velop con­fi­dent, in­de­pen­dent thinkers and learn­ers.

“Our youngest stu­dents con­tinue to sur­prise me with their cu­rios­ity, en­gage­ment and ea­ger­ness - they are so ex­cited to learn about their world. We want to nur­ture that spark of cu­rios­ity so they keep it through­out their school years and be­yond.”
