The first international school that offers the Victorian Curriculum in Malaysia, Peninsula International School Australia (Peninsula) make its debut at the recently concluded 9thPrivate & International School Fair (PISF) in Mid Valley Exhibition Centre on 17 and 18 June 2017.
Parents and guardians who visited Peninsula’s booth were warmly greeted by the founding team, led by Clive Rogers. The team was joined by representatives from Peninsula Grammar, Peninsula’s partner school, Director of Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Blair Cooper, Lucy Gowdie, Head of Secondary School and Louise Nicholls-Easley, Head of Primary School at the two-day event.
Visitors to the fair were given a special treat and had the opportunity to have a glimpse into the Victorian curriculum at a talk, titled “The VCE Story: To Australia and beyond” hosted by Cooper last Sunday. Amongst the topics presented were the structure of VCE and assessment of VCE studies. Cooper also shared some information on The Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), prerequisites of tertiary studies as well as the recognition of the VCE programme.
“As the Founding Principal, I felt greatly rewarded by our first interaction with parents at the 9th Private & International School Fair 2017 held at Mid Valley. Our partners from the Peninsular Grammar, Melbourne who were on hand to support and help at this event were also very excited by the number of parents asking questions about the school and discovering the outstanding opportunities our learning environments offer to students who want to learn and be part of the ‘Peninsular Experience’, said Clive Rogers.
“With the school opening in January 2018 I do encourage parents and students to visit our school and admissions office to explore the magnificent setting of grounds, buildings and investigate the great things our students will be studying using the Victoria Curriculum as a foundation for 21st Century learning and as a direct pathway to Universities in Australia, United Kingdom, United States and of course Malaysia,” added Rogers.
