The Headquarters for the International Education Agency (IEA) has moved
location from a small building on the Port Moresby International School
site to the old Ela Beach International School site at the corner of Ela Beach Road and Hunter Street in downtown Port Moresby.
The International Education Agency provides high quality private
education, meeting the needs of individual learners in a caring environment.
The IEA provides clear direction through its mission statement
and strategic plans and is committed to participatory decision making
processes at all levels of organisation. Parents, the community, principals
and teachers have significant roles to play in the ongoing consultation
process which underlies all decision making. Because of its diversity
and commitment to meeting individual needs, decision making about the
implementation of plans, as far as practicable, devolves toward those
who must implement the decisions.
The IEA values principles of social justice and equity. There is a strong
concern for the welfare of all who participate in assisting the IEA
to achieve its mission.
The IEA provides a broad and balanced curriculum designed to promote
intellectual, creative, personal, physical and recreational skills and
understandings. The curriculum fosters an appreciation of the natural
and social environments and encourages a sense of responsibility towards
these.Within this curriculum schools have considerable freedom in the
development of teaching and learning programs designed to meet the needs
of individual students.
The IEA strongly affirms that learning in schools must be child centred
and focused upon the achievement of each individual students potential.
Teaching programs should reflect an understanding of the stages of development
through which children pass, and should ensure that each childs
new learning is founded firmly in learning which has occurred before.Students
in IEA schools are provided with opportunities to develop an ability
and readiness to cope with change, including ease of transition for
students moving to other countries.
Students are helped to develop strong self concepts so as to promote
responsible independence and moral autonomy. They learn to appreciate
the value systems implicit in national cultures, and to recognise the
need for tolerance and understanding.
The maintenance of close communication with the childs home is
a major objective for the school. This acknowledges the important role
played by parents, families and the broader community in the total education
of the child. Parents must be involved in the identification and monitoring
of the needs of their children.
The IEA recognises the vital importance of teacher inservice programs
in schools, and therefore is committed to the provision of opportunities
for each teachers professional growth and development.
Because it is attuned to the goals and aspirations of the government
and people of Papua New Guinea, the IEA is mindful of its duty to contribute
to the Nations development through the education of Papua New
Guinean and expatriate students, and through the development of Papua
New Guinean teachers.
All IEA schools need to provide experiences leading to an appreciation
and understanding of the culture of PNG as well as the individuals
culture, and should strive to prepare students for life in a multi-cultural
