10th March

Dear Parents,

Traffic Movement

Traffic flow during peak drop off and pick up times at building No. 23 has not been smooth lately due to limited space.  Therefore, we have cleared the parking area to make it easier for parents to park and pick up or drop your children off. Please adhere to this traffic flow diagram at all times (noting the advised left turn out of the gate for your own safety):

To ease traffic flow, secondary school students should be picked up or dropped off at building No. 13 during and shortly before or after normal school hours. At any other time, please use No.23.

First Term Break 12 – 20 March

The first term break starts on Friday, 12 March until Sunday, 20 March.  Sri Araians, go have a good break, and come back fresh to start a new term. …


International Competition and Assessments for Schools (ICAS)

6th March

Pupils are once again invited to participate in the annual International Competition and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) examination program run by the University of New South Wales.

ICAS is an examination program that has been available to students throughout Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, the Pacific region and South Africa for the last 30 years.

The exams provide an opportunity for all students to gain a measure of their own achievement in an external assessment situation.

Furthermore, it provides both schools and teachers with comprehensive reporting results and gives parents helpful information regarding their child’s performance.
All students receive a certificate and an individual report indicating which questions were answered correctly as well as the average marks for the region.

In previous years, Sri Ara students have attained many ICAS distinctions, placing the recipients in the top 10% of students in Malaysia.

We would love …

6th March

As mentioned in an earlier post, the second Parents-Teachers group meeting took place on the 3rd March.

Thanks to those parents who made an effort to turn up.

There were enough attendees to elect a committee (although we still want MORE PARENTS to attend because it’s YOUR group, people) but we’re definitely moving in the right direction.

The full minutes of the meeting – assiduously collated by Puan Fatimah (for which, thanks are due) – will be published in due course.

In the meantime, please be aware that a newsletter will be on the way to all parents later this week (i.e. between 7-11 March).

This will contain a short précis of the meeting covering the major points that parents need to be aware of.

We need your feedback on some of these issues to ensure that the decisions we take are agreed by the majority. …
