Liam King, Principal
Welcome back to the new school year! I hope that you all had a relaxing and enjoyable break. It was great to see the students engaging in their learning and the year has started well with a lot of excitement and energy.
On 14 February 2000 the Australian International School Malaysia opened its doors for the first time and next Friday we will mark 20 years of offering an outstanding Australian education in Malaysia. To celebrate this significant milestone we invite all families to join us at our Foundation Day Assembly that will be held in the Auditorium at 9:00am.
This year is shaping as an exciting year as we enjoy 20 years of education, but it is also a great opportunity to look back so that, as a school, we continue to move forward. In the last two weeks I have presented at the Junior School, Middle and Senior School Information sessions to outline our theme for the year which is ‘Our School, Our Future’. This theme allows us to look back and celebrate the history of AISM but at the same time look forwards to determine the type of school we want to be in the future. It is a time to reflect on the positive aspects of AISM but at the same time identify opportunities for growth and development.
This year we have already been very busy; we celebrated Australia Day through a whole school assembly and our students performed at the Australian High Commission as part of their Australia Day event. We have enjoyed the Lion Dance performing as part of Chinese New Year and today we welcomed back our Distinguished Achievers as well as inducting our new student leaders for 2020.
Thank you to all the parents and students who have made the time to introduce themselves and I look forward to continuing to meet you all throughout the term.
