A CLEAN-SWEEP FOR ISP AT THE NOVEL KNOCKOUT
On Tuesday 12th May 2015 nine of Malaysia’s top International Schools competed for the annual ultimate reading showdown – ‘Novel Knockout’.
ISP entered 2 Primary teams and 1 in the Secondary section. These students, with a genuine love of reading, gave up much of their own time to read, re-read and read again the 8 chosen books, devise their own questions, answer each other’s questions, teacher questions – generally know each text inside out!
The results were astonishing: ISP took home a First and Second place in the Primary section and a First in the Secondary section. Our teams simply couldn’t have done any better. In order to achieve these results the Primary schools beat off the competition of 15 other teams and the Secondary students finished ahead of 12 other teams. Simply amazing. Well done to our fabulous students!
It is a privilege and a great honour to be the first Principal to lead this prestigious and unique school into an exciting and successful future. As Principal, my mission is to work with the community to provide high quality education, set high and achievable expectations, and create a safe school where every child is treated as an individual. Together, we strive to achieve our shared vision of establishing The International School @ ParkCity as ‘Malaysia’s premier international school by offering excellence in the academic sphere, on the sporting field, in the arts and beyond’.
The International School @ ParkCity is unique in its setting and convenient location. We offer an appropriate and challenging programme of study, broadly based upon the National Curriculum for England, whilst incorporating the flexibility to effectively respond to global change. More details of the curriculum that we follow can be found on the Curriculum tab of the website.
Our robust academic programme is supported by a strong pastoral system, which nurtures and enables each student to achieve their maximum potential. In addition to the wide range of after-school activities, we have a House system that encourages healthy competition between students at all levels.
The International School @ ParkCity is a place where internationally-minded and culturally aware students are encouraged to pursue both academic excellence and personal development, thus enabling them to take a leading role in tomorrow’s ever-changing global community. We ensure that all children are fully aware of their social responsibility by including global awareness issues as a prominent part of the programme of study. Through the partnership of child, parent, school and community, we do and will make a real difference.
I hope that this website allows you to enter our world and raise the levels of excitement of what we have to offer. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly admissions staff at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about the school or how to enrol your child.
