Community and Service

ISPP acknowledges its place within the Phnom Penh community, both for the many distinct needs of that community and for the richness of experiences we gain from our engagement within it. We are a community - centred school. We encourage all students of all ages, staff and their families to take responsibility for and respond to the many needs within our community through learning and action. In doing so, ISPP aims to foster a life-long commitment to the values and benefits of service beyond school and to contribute to a better, more peaceful world.

In the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme Standards and Practices, it is important for students to have the opportunity to act on what they are learning.  Through the IB, we have clear expectations of what these actions should be like in the PYP. Taking action is an important conclusion to the learning that incorporates students making connections to what they have learned, applying a variety of real life skills, demonstrating an enduring understanding through concepts and reflecting on the attributes of the learner profile and attitudes.

Community and Service Mission Statement

Through community service initiatives, International School of Phnom Penh aims to develop caring, principled and responsible young global citizens. Community service projects at ISPP build relationships between the school community and local communities in need. By engaging in active service our young people are empowered to become informed, purposeful and active citizens who effect meaningful change.
