The Peninsula International School Australia, which is set to be the first school in Malaysia to offer Australia’s Victorian Curriculum for primary and secondary students, has been holding periodic roadshows for interested parents.
The roadshows that have been held so far have taken place at Setia City Mall, which is close to where the soon-to-be-ready Peninsula campus is situated.
Peninsula’s first campus is set to open in January 2018 with a second campus to open in Menglembu, outside of Ipoh, Perak a year later.
Registration of interest at the Setia Alam campus began in March.
So far two roadshows, in the form of coffee mornings/afternoons, have been held at Jamaica Blue Coffee in Setia City Mall.
The first on Feb 24 was attended by 27 parents. Peninsula’s founding principal, Clive Rogers, was on hand to introduce the school and speak about the Australian curriculum and its advantages.
The second roadshow, on Feb 28, had a total of 17 parents attending the talk presented by Gary van den Elsen, Director of International Operations from Peninsula Grammar in Australia.
According to Catherine de Jonge, Peninsula’s Director of Admissions and Marketing, the school is planning more such presentations soon for interested parents.
Catherine also said that Stuart Johnston, Principal and Blair Cooper, Director of VCE Studies of Peninsula Grammar were recently in Malaysia at the Peninsula’s enquiries office for discussions with her, Clive, Peninsula’s Senior Operations Manager, Jonathan Chong and HCK Education Division CEO, Lee Kok Cheng.
Peninsula’s curriculum is delivered through partnership with Peninsula Grammar (TPS), a prestigious school in Melbourne, Australia.
Currently, the Victorian Curriculum based primary and secondary education for students from Year 1 (Age 7) to Year 12 (Age 18) is offered at over 25 schools worldwide.
