International schools are built on providing students with learning and cultural opportunities that embrace the term Global. One such recent experience that was built on this aspect of international mindedness was a music exchange programme with a renowned Taiwanese school.
On May 6, Jimei Elementary School from Taipei, Taiwan, was invited to have an exchange of ideas on music with our students at Peninsula International School Australia (PISA) in Setia Alam. These talented students between the aged between 7 and 13 showcased their musical talent through two fantastic orchestra performances on stage. A few of our Year 9, 10 and 11 students also put up two performances in our auditorium.
This programme is aimed at encouraging our students to grow as well as apply their knowledge and skills in a wide variety of settings and situations. Students of both Jimei Elementary School and PISA gained intangible benefits from this international exchange.
This international exchange initiative is in line with PISA’s school philosophy to promote character building and internationalism. In the process, we firmly believe that they will not only gain new friends from across the world but it also goes a long way to expand their worldview and experiences during their studies with us.
Moving forward, PISA will organise more of such programmes to enrich our students’ experiences. The school will consciously build a bridge for the students between Malaysia and the rest of the world so that they can be fully skilled as effective global citizens.
