Global Learning Peninsula Grammar’s partner school opens in Malaysia
In forging a new path with its commitment to a truly global education, Peninsula Grammar celebrated the opening of its partner school Peninsula International School Australia (PISA), Malaysia earlier this month. The school, located in Setia Alam, Selangor, is designed to provide students with a world-class learning experience, replicating the unique curriculum designs of Peninsula Grammar.
Principal, Mr. Stuart Johnston, attended the opening ceremony and in his speech captured the importance of this new relationship. He noted that the building of an identity does not simply arrive when a new school opens, it is fostered through the development of a community with a shared vision and passion for authentic learning. He remarked on the facilities, stating that the world-class pool, FIFA-approved soccer field and rooftop basketball courts are indicative of the PISA commitment to the success of every student.
In recognising that the 21st century learner requires opportunities to learn in diverse and unique cultures, it is hoped that the bond between the schools will see student exchanges and intercultural expeditions take place in the coming years. In implementing the Victorian Curriculum, PISA will be the first school in Malaysia to offer the Victorian Certificate of Education next year. It is an exciting time for both schools.
Peninsula Grammar is renowned for its willingness to explore new paths and discover new opportunities, to ensure every student will, through the choices afforded to them, Learn. Grow. Flourish.
Peninsula Grammar is also holding an information session on Monday, June 18, for its Year 10 to 12 Inspiring Me program, which includes information on its excellent VCE Curriculum.
