Our Campuses

We have approximately 1200 students enrolled – Early Childhood to Grade 6. Boro Campus is the Lower Primary section, 3 year olds to Grade 2 and the Koro Campus is the Upper Primary section and starts at Grade 3 to Grade 6. The two campuses form the KoroBoro International School.

KoroBoro International School is a member of the International Education Agency.  The IEA operates over twenty schools throughout Papua New Guinea.  KoroBoro is the largest of these schools and operates across two campuses:

  • Boroko East ELV – Grade 2
  • Korobosea Grade 3 – Grade 6

KoroBoro is governed by the KoroBoro Board of Governors, commonly known as the School Board. The School Principal is responsible to the School Board for all aspects of the school’s operations, including the organisation, operation, physical facilities, and educational programmes and staffing of the school. In this, the School Principal is supported and advised by the school’s senior leadership team.

The management and administration of a complex international school like KoroBoro, demands the recognition that the whole leadership team needs to be involved and the team's ideas taken into account, as an advisory body to the School Principal.   Although accountability cannot be delegated, responsibility for certain aspects of the school's operations is delegated directly by the School Principal to members of the senior leadership team, always recognising that final accountability lies with the School Principal.

Another important partnership that KoroBoro enjoys is with Port Moresby International School (POMIS). This is an IEA Secondary School that provides for students in Grade 7 to 12.  The majority of KoroBoro students move to POMIS after completion Grade 6.

KoroBoro International School has a long tradition of providing quality international education. For well over 50 years. Our ex-students have gone on to take significant positions in government, business and the public service. 

At KoroBoro we have high expectations of all our students.  Parents are invited into partnership with the school to ensure that our students are supported in embracing the many opportunities provided at KoroBoro.

In 2017, Boroko East International School and Korobosea International School merged to form the KoroBoro International School with one (1) Principal leading the whole school, with two (2) Deputy Principals at each campus.

Our approach is child-centred. This means that teachers plan a curriculum that is relevant and meaningful to the students' own lives and interests and provides them with the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning. We believe students learn by `doing' - that is by actively investigating, inquiring, taking part in practical work, learning by experimentation and discovery, being constantly challenged to think productively and creatively. We endeavour to ensure students enjoy learning and can positively 'evaluate their own talents and skills while learning to become socially and personally confident and secure.

As a school, we provide a secure and caring atmosphere in which the students can feel safe. We provide a focus and support for our community of parents. As a staff, we work together collaboratively as a team, both teaching and non-teaching staff.

Whilst the School remains separate geographically from each Campus, we are all part of one large learning community, which provides exciting opportunities, academic rigour and best of all making new friends.
