WELCOME our fellow friends from Chandra Kusuma International School, Medan, Indonesia.They arrived on Wednesday, 8 October 2014 for a 3 days 2 nights educational study tour, accompanied by our Year 10 students. SELAMAT DATANG!
Kingsley International School has initiated international student educational tours to provide our students with hands-on experiential learning, sharing of history, culture and traditions with our host school. These exchanges are intended to broaden our student’s understanding and tolerance of other cultures as well as improving their language skills and further enhancing their social skills.
Kingsley embarked on this educational exchange with its first cohort of students visiting the Chandra Kusuma International School in Medan, Indonesia in April 2014 while a return visit is currently underway with Kingsley International School hosting our visitors from Medan.
Students going out on these educational exchanges make presentations in the host school and embark on a series of learning activities together with their counterparts in the host school. Upon returning from such educational tours they are expected to produce and share with their peers a Reflective Report that demonstrates the critical thinking and awareness that has started to develop in them.
In the near future, such international visits may extend to school partners in different countries to provide our students a holistic and balanced education. Our aim is to bring the world of education to our students doorsteps, thus we endeavor to plan programmes that encompass a wide range of inter-disciplinary learning objectives aligned to our core values.
It's Summer everyone! Holiday is here and what a way to end our academic year of 2013/2014 with a mini performance session by our young ones in Early Years.
Our student Mandy has actively participated in many ballet competitions internationally. Recently, she won a gold medal in CSTD classical ballet competition open category and a bronze medal in the 17th Dance Society of Malaysia Ballet Competition.
Our Year 4 students went on an excursion trip to Seremban Agro Park. It was an eye opener for all of them as they explored the Minangkabau heritage houses, and braved the fruit orchard to pluck star fruits. They also dropped by the Yakult factory to learn about the production processes and the science technology behind it.
For the first time, twelve of our Year 9 and Year 10 students visited Chandra Kusuma International School in Medan, Indonesia. It was an eye opener for all of them as they made new friends and experienced a new culture in Medan. They also spent a night in Bukit Lawang (On The Rocks Chalets) and some were lucky to catch a glimpse of the orang-utans and a peacock during jungle trekking. The trip went on very well as our students portrayed exemplary behaviour and were cooperative throughout the entire trip.
Our Year 1 and Year 2 students had a fantastic time being creative with clay. They visited the Clay Expression Studio in Subang Jaya, as part of Their Key Stage 1 Term 2 field trip requirement. They made their very own 'teddy themed' pencil holders (Year 1) and animal mugs (Year 2). Here are some of the photographs of this exciting trip.
