A once in a lifetime opportunity for teenagers in Ipoh to experience the unique teaching methods of an international programme
Fairview International School Ipoh, the only international baccalaureate (IB) world school which offers the primary years programme in Perak, is offering RM1.2 million worth of scholarships to Perak’s UPSR top performers (academic and non academic).
The scholarship which will run for a three year period, aims to house ten students a year from Perak Chinese schools at Fairview International School’s Ipoh campus. Here they will complete the five year long middle years programme. The eligible students should be recommended to Fairview by the members of Perak State Principals Association,” said Daniel Chian, Chairman of the Fairview Group.
The Fairview Group started the operation of its fifth campus in Ipoh in August 2014. Although the Ipoh campus was just awarded the IB World School status, word is spreading out fast on the effectiveness of the approaches to teaching and learning. During the Perak SJKC school principals’ conference in Kampar on July 21st 2017 where University College Fairview was invited to speak on 21st century education, the Group proudly announced the good news on offering ten full scholarships for UPSR students at its Ipoh campus.
Fairview International School is the first IB World School in Malaysia to offer the continuum of International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes; the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP).
“Our network allows us to share these best practices with all our schools through video conferencing, face to face sessions and various other means,” said Chian.
“Our academic programme backed by the UK national curriculum is driven by concepts, inquiry, the learner profile, flipped classroom, technology integrated learning, approaches to learning, expeditions, co-curricular activities, action and service and charity programmes. These are successfully achieved through the IB curriculum framework with the smooth transition from transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary and disciplinary approaches through the 3 programmes culminating in the PYP Exhibition to MYP Personal Project to DP Theory of Knowledge and Extended Essay respectively.
Interested parties should apply immediately as this offer is only applicable for the school’s academic year intake in the coming January 2018. Since there are tests and interviews involved, the latest date to submit the application forms is 1st December 2017.
