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.

IEA Mission

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 student’s potential. Teaching programs should reflect an understanding of the stages of development through which children pass, and should ensure that each child’s 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 child’s 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 teacher’s 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 Nation’s 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 individual’s culture, and should strive to prepare students for life in a multi-cultural society.
