Chinese New Year Holidays
Chinese New Year is just around the corner, Monday and Tuesday, 23 & 24 January. As is the usual practice, the school will be closed for a week from Monday to Friday, 23 to 27 January. We will …
In light of events that occurred both locally and internationally whereby security was breached with serious consequences as in the kindergarten in Muar. The Ministry of Education has suggested security be increased and flow of people be restricted.
As a consequence, we will be restricting access to everyone. There will be no access to school premises to anyone including parents from 8.30 am to 3.00 pm Mondays to Thursdays; and 8.30 am to 2.50 pm on Fridays from the beginning of next term i.e. January 2012.
We hope that you will prepare your children to adjust to this by then. Once again, this is for your own child/children’s good and we would like everybody to comply.
It was 5 years ago when we moved to Johor Bahru from Kuala Lumpur. My daughter started her schooling at the Garden International School in KL. The Garden school has a long history with a good reputation and has more than 1,200 pupils. My daughter was very happy to go to school every day and as parents we were satisfied with their organization.
When we choose Sri Ara International School as her new school at her Year 5, we had a good impression about the school environment and staff but we had some disappointment for the differences of class size and facilities.
However, despite our worries, she started to change for the better in a very short period.

This is my daughter’s 6th year and the 3rd year for my son at Sri Ara International School. When we start sending my daughter to this school, there were not many choices for non Malaysian children in Johor Bahru.

Some parents decided to shift their children to new school from here as their facilities are all new & modern, they looks organized and most parents believe that more children in class enhances their ability of education and communication skill.
What I hear from some of those parents and children recently… They are missing so much of the things that they enjoyed in Sri Ara, a school that has something very special to offer…
This ‘something’ is the thing that binds us to this school.
When you first visit Sri Ara, …
Ara School has given both my sons an excellent education in small classes with individual attention to my kids needs, opportunities to try new things in a safe environment and a community of parents who believe in the schools mission.
There is no doubt my son got a good education at Sri Ara. In addition to opportunities to excel, he also gets a chance to participate in a range of activities he doesn’t have to be the best in order to be valued.
What I cherish at Sri Ara is that it’s an excellent place for children to learn to work together and help each other regardless of any age group or where you are from. It’s a beautiful environment which we will always cherish and remember.
