The IB connects a worldwide community of learners who celebrate a common humanity and share a belief that education can help to build a better and more peaceful world. Schools offering the IB bring a shared commitment to the IB’s mission through the learning community.
Education is a social or collective endeavour and a benefit to the community as a whole, as well as to the individuals within it. Everyone in the learning community has agency; they see themselves as contributors to its ongoing strength and success, and take action to bring about change.
To foster international-mindedness, the learning community extends to the whole IB community and views the world as the broadest context for learning. It is inclusive of everyone involved in the life of the school: students and their families, all school staff members and other important adults in the students’ lives. By situating learning within local and global communities, outcomes are considered from individual and collective perspectives, highlighting the interdependence of everyone and everything.
Together the learning community:
The learner profile provides many opportunities to explore attributes that underpin these outcomes, supporting everyone to be principled, caring and reflective community members.

Library Project Kosova
We Are enthusiastic to be part of the Library Project Kosova together with our Albanian learning students aged 3 to 7 years old. This wonderful initiative brings modern captivating titles translated in Albanian to students around Kosovo. The project circulates titles across schools in Kosovo and provides training and guidance on reading comprehension and strategies for the teacher to use during her Albanian literature classes.
Ms. Maliqi and her students are looking forward to being part of the project and learning together while reading the first book, “Torta me petulla” by the famous Swedish author Sven Nordqvist.

This morning Ms. Larissa Bunn – Deputy Head of Office -UNICEF, Kosovo visited ILG to speak with the Third Graders about UNICEF as a learning community. Third Graders asked questions about the interconneted of organizations such as UNICEF with the communities around the world. They also shared their views how they can learn to build an understanding of the world beyond the school and home walls.
Ms. L Brunn also donated two books to ILG School. Students of Grade Three built a firm understanding that learning happens all the time, anywhere and that we learn from one another all the time. Learning never stops and evey place in the community is a learning spot.
