Safeguarding Policy

Child abuse and neglect are a violation of a child’s human rights and are obstacles to the child’s education as well as to their physical, social and emotional development. This type of abuse and neglect are of concern throughout the world. The Australian International School Malaysia endorses the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (Articles 19 and 34), of which our host country, Malaysia, is a signatory.


Leadership And Intercultural

Recognising culture and developing respect

Interacting and empathising with others
