Barely 1 year into its operations, our international school has already inspired the confidence of the Australian High Commission and the Korean Human Resource Development Institute for Health and Welfare. Both organisations were impressed by different aspects of the school during their visit.
Education Manager from the Australian High Commission, Ms Melissa Tan, was on a courtesy visit seeing as Peninsula International School Australia (PISA) is the first in Malaysia to offer the prestigious and strictly monitored Victorian Curriculum from Australia. During her visit, she managed to have a chat with Mr Clive Rogers, Founding Principal of PISA, and was shown all the school facilities which were already fully operational.
Ms Melissa Tan was truly impressed with the facilities of the school and quality of education provided by the academic staff. In fact, she expressed interest in having collaborations with the school to organise activities for the Australian society in Malaysia.
PISA currently has a few Korean students among its international student community, capturing the attention of the Korean Human Resource Development Institute for Health and Welfare (KOHI). The Institute expressed a deep interest in PISA’s infectious disease surveillance and response system, so much so that they flew all the way from Korea to visit the school.
The entourage consisted of 24 delegates – officials from KOHI and Korean Ministry of Education officials in charge of student infectious disease surveillance and response. Their visit to the school proved fruitful indeed, as they intend to model after PISA’s system. In fact, KOHI is currently operating educational programmes for Korean government officials and civilians in the Health and Welfare field, which covers approximately 500,000 people every year.
