There have been a lot of opportunities and activities on offer this year for our students. Therefore, this week we hosted a special assembly to highlight some of the various trips and ECA's that have taken place recently. Here are some highlights from the assembly.
Our Year 5 & 6 students did a fantastic job for their production of Matilda last week. We have a video of their performance on Friday to share with you all.
Yesterday, we officially named our halls in the main building. Mrs Kaloo had a few words to say to commemorate the occasion.
Over the course of last weekend our Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Silver Award students took part in their adventurous journey. They headed off to Pangkor island for what was a challenging and rewarding experience kayaking and camping round the island. Here are a few highlights.
Last weekend our Duke of Edinburgh(DofE) Silver Award students took part in their Qualifying Journey at Ampang Pecah Training Centre in Kuala Kubu Baru.
They cooked their own lunch then kayaked out onto the lake. This was great preparation for their Adventurous Journey, which will take place next weekend in Pangkor.
This morning we had a lively start to the day with Mr Oskar's Secondary Assembly. Given we are close to the end of the academic year this song was a fitting choice.
Both performances are now sold out so no tickets are available.
Congratulations to our Year 11 students who have now completed their IGCSE exams and sadly have had their last day in school. We have a few photos from their time in school to share with you all.
Here is the official FOBISIA Primary Games video

By now, many of you will be aware that Malaysia has woken up to a new era, with history and records being made during yesterday's election. It is an exciting time, although, as with any change, it is tinged with anxiety about the unknown. That said, we want to wish all Malaysians the very best as we venture forth into this new tomorrow and assure all our expatriate families that Malaysia will continue to be a safe and peaceful home away from home for you all.
As you are all aware today was declared a holiday, but in the early hours this morning Friday 11th May was also declared a public holiday. Therefore, the School will remain closed tomorrow and only officially reopen on Monday 14th May.
However, the IGCSE exams will continue as planned and we already have a team of teachers and support staff ready to assist in making sure these exams continue without interruption. Please ensure that all IGCSE exam candidates are in the School early, just in case there are traffic delays this afternoon and tomorrow.
Last weekend students from both our campuses ventured off out into the jungle. Taman Negara to be more precise, they braved the great outdoors for their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award adventurous journey. They trekked, learned to cook and camped in the jungle and managed to survive the dreaded leeches! Overall it was a very rewarding experience.
Congratulations to year 8 student Hayden Menon. Hayden won the ATF Boys Under-14 championship held in Kuala Terengganu last week. He beat a Slovakian player in the final by straight sets 6-2, 6-2 in 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Well done Hayden!
Earlier this week our students certainly got in the spirit of Performing Visual Arts Day. Alongside some great musical performances we also has our fashion show.

They should now be well prepared now for the jungle!
