Mak­ing the right choice

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Private & International School Guide -

BASED on a lat­est study by the In­ter­na­tional School Con­sul­tancy, there are more than 1,000 in­ter­na­tional schools in South-East Asia and 140 of those schools are in Malaysia. The num­ber is ex­pected to grow over the next few years.

The de­mand for an in­ter­na­tional school ed­u­ca­tion has been in­creas­ing since the Malaysian Gov­ern­ment lifted the quota for lo­cal stu­dent en­rol­ment in in­ter­na­tional schools.

There is a wide range of in­ter­na­tional schools in Malaysia and th­ese schools dif­fer in terms of the cur­ricu­lum of­fered, teach­ing staff and stu­dent com­po­si­tion as well as board­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

There­fore, par­ents who are con­sid­er­ing an in­ter­na­tional school ed­u­ca­tion for their chil­dren should re­search the avail­able op­tions.

Since 2012, Mint Com­mu­ni­ca­tions has been help­ing par­ents find the right in­ter­na­tional school for their chil­dren through or­gan­is­ing a series of fairs in Kuala Lumpur, Pe­nang and Jo­hor.

The Pri­vate & In­ter­na­tional School Fair also made its de­but in Kuch­ing, Kota Kin­a­balu and Sin­ga­pore this year. The fairs have proven to be suc­cess­ful through the in­creas­ing in­ter­est from par­ents and ex­hibitors each year.

“We are de­lighted to or­gan­ise the Pri­vate & In­ter­na­tional School Fair in Kuala Lumpur. The fair is an ex­cel­lent event for par­ents to con­nect with lead­ing in­ter­na­tional schools from all over the coun­try,” says Mint 10th Pri­vate & In­ter­na­tional School Fair Date Time Venue

The 10th Pri­vate & In­ter­na­tional School Fair in Kuala Lumpur takes place this Satur­day and Sun­day at the Mid Val­ley Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre, Kuala Lumpur.

At the fair, par­ents can pur­chase the 2017/2018 edi­tion of the Ed­u­ca­tion Des­ti­na­tion Malaysia, which is an in-depth and com­pre­hen­sive guide to in­ter­na­tional schools in the coun­try.

This guide­book con­tains de­tailed in­for­ma­tion on schools, use­ful ar­ti­cles and in­sight­ful ad­vice to help par­ents make im­por­tant de­ci­sions about their chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion.

The fair will also fea­ture the Learn­ing is Fun ac­tiv­ity for chil­dren aged 12 and be­low. While their par­ents en­gage with ex­hibitors, chil­dren can par­tic­i­pate in the fun and ex­cit­ing ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties.
