IPEKA MAKASSAR Christian School was established in 1998 in Makassar, South Sulawesi. It has been integrated with Iman Pengharapan dan Kasih (IPEKA) Foundation in terms of curriculum and management. Education system in IPEKA and also in IPEKA MAKASSAR is based on Christian Worldview supporting students to experience God’s image restoration (salvation in Jesus Christ), so that they will find their life meaning and be ready to carry out God-given cultural mandate in their life (2 Tim 3:15-17).
In IPEKA MAKASSAR Kindergarten which has adopted Play Based Learning Curriculum , using Project Approach, the students are accustomed to express their own ideas and create their own work based on those creative ideas. The curriculum we implement is IPEKA Christian Education (ICE-C) developed by teachers in line with Competence Standard from Education National Standard Board and IPEKA Christian School’s Philosophy. In IPEKA school, teachers play the role of parents (in loco parentis) while the students spend their time in the school environment. Teachers are very influential in the life and future of the students under their care.
In the learning process, every teacher is a pastor for their students in the areas of knowledge, competence, attitude, morality and spiritual life. The role of a teacher as a pastor is started from their role-modelling to their students, so that out of the relation a living curriculum grows.
