Johor Bahru, 28 November 2014 – Sunway, the Master Community Developer, announced its upcoming Sunway Iskandar plans with the introduction of the Sunway International School (SIS) Sunway Iskandar.
“With 40 years of expertise in the property industry, Sunway is continuously working towards developing liveable townships and sustainable quality living in a community,” said Tan Wee Bee, Sunway’s Executive Director for Property & Construction, Southern Region and Singapore.
He continued, “With SIS Sunway Iskandar, we are confident that residents at Iskandar will have the privilege of world class education which will in turn shape the holistic lifestyle of the community.”
Scheduled for its first intake in 2017, SIS Sunway Iskandar will be the only school in Iskandar, Johor to offer the Canadian (Ontario) curriculum – rated as one of the world’s best school systems. The School is also a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).
Pre-enrolment for the new campus will begin in January 2015 onwards for pre-school right up to pre-university. SIS Sunway Iskandar will also provide the International Baccalaureate (IB) education framework for its pre-university students.
“We are proud to be able to contribute to the Iskandar community through the provision of international education. The state-of-the-art campus is designed to nurture minds and build characters, especially with our curriculum which focuses on educational technologies and emphasizes soft-skill developments,” said Dr. Elizabeth Lee, Senior Executive Director of Sunway Education Group.
During the event, both Sunway Property and Sunway Education Group collectively announced its special bursary programme, presenting attractive benefits to early birds of the property and School. Children of any Sunway Iskandar buyers will be entitled to a bursary programme upon qualifying all the terms and conditions.
SIS Sunway Iskandar will also offer a special bursary of RM 10,000 to all student enrolment. The bursaries are valid for 24 months from the date of the School’s opening and applicants are eligible to both special bursaries upon qualifying all the terms and conditions.
With English as the medium, SIS Sunway Iskandar will be fully taught by Canadian certified teachers and IB certified educators. SIS is also the first international school to implement a full laptop-programme.
Strategically located in the heart of Medini, the education institution will seamlessly connect with major highways enabling greater connectivity into Johor Bahru, Iskandar and Singapore. The completion of the Coastal Highway Southern Link (CHSL) in 2017 will further provide direct access to the new campus as it will only take five minutes for residents and visitors to arrive in Sunway Iskandar.
SIS Sunway Iskandar is a candidate school for the IB Diploma Programme pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy – a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
**Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), the Middle Years Programme (IBMYP), the Diploma Programme (IBDP) or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org
