Qual­ity, af­ford­able in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BRIGHT KIDS -

PAR­ENTS who are keen on en­rolling their chil­dren in in­ter­na­tional schools to­day are spoilt for choice. How­ever, be­fore choos­ing the right school for their child, there are a num­ber of fac­tors that they should con­sider — price, syl­labus, lo­ca­tion as well as the fa­cil­i­ties of the in­sti­tu­tion. Ni­lai In­ter­na­tional School (NIS) opened its doors in 2010 and though it is among one of the more af­ford­able in­ter­na­tional schools in Malaysia, it is not lack­ing in fa­cil­i­ties. NIS pro­vides all the teach­ing and learn­ing ameni­ties of a world-class in­ter­na­tional school, with its pur­pose-built cam­pus on 6.01ha cam­pus. Lo­cated in the green sub­urb of Pu­tra Ni­lai, it is wholly owned by Ni­lai Ed­u­ca­tion Sdn Bhd, which also op­er­ates Ni­lai Univer­sity. Both in­sti­tu­tions sit side-by­side in a quiet cul-de-sac in this pic­turesque town. Eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble by a num­ber of high­ways, NIS is just 35 min­utes from the Kuala Lumpur city cen­tre and a mere 15 min­utes from Serem­ban and the Kuala Lumpur In­ter­na­tional Air­port. School bus ser­vices are avail­able from a num­ber of des­ig­nated spots, mak­ing the com­mute to NIS rel­a­tively stress free. The cam­pus fea­tures round-the­clock se­cu­rity and it also has board­ing fa­cil­i­ties. Each class­room fea­tures a state-of-the-art smart board, which en­cour­ages an in­ter­ac­tive learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Its li­brary is well-stocked with books for all age groups to en­cour­age the read­ing habit among stu­dents. Ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties are highly en­cour­aged with a range of sport­ing fa­cil­i­ties avail­able on cam­pus, in­clud­ing out­door courts, a foot­ball field and a swim­ming pool. The teach­ing staff mem­bers com­prise both ex­pa­tri­ates and Malaysians who have been hand­picked by the ad­min­is­tra­tors to de­liver the in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions (CIE) syl­labus. In­takes for NIS are in Jan­uary, April and Septem­ber for Pri­mary 1 to Sec­ondary (O-Lev­els). The Early Years Foun­da­tion stage for chil­dren aged be­tween three and five is sched­uled to start soon.
