Dear Parents & Students

Charity Drive

We are proud to announce that the students collected about RM612.60 from the ‘Mufti’ held last week.  This included donations by some of our parents.

The main event for the charity drive for the Japan disaster fund will be the Food & Funfair and Jumble Sale, this Saturday 9 April.  It will be a replacement day for the school so attendance is compulsory.  Students will have to be in school by 8 am and go home at 3 pm.

We urgently need parents and students to help with this event. More specifically:

We need donations of clothes, books, toys or anything else you have lying around that we can sell. It won’t be much of a sale if there is nothing to buy or sell. Cash donations would be more than welcome too of course!

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. …

Assessment / Exam, News. Comments Off on 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 …
