Elementary Swim Trial at M'KIS
Elementary swim season is getting underway. We had a great elementary swim trial earlier this week. Well done to all elementary students who came down and showed us their M'KIS Tiger Spirit.
Our elementary swim team is open to students from grade 2 through to grade 5. It's a great way for our young athletes to get into the competitive spirit as we compete against other international schools. Our coaches are ready to go and can't wait for the first official practice of the season.
Thank you, Mr. Vincent Ventura
M'KIS was lucky to have Mr. Vincent Ventura from LitLife PD here to run some amazing professional development with our faculty. Brilliant, knowledgeable, witty, dynamic, and eye-opening were just some of the words that our faculty used to describe Mr. Ventura and what they learned over the past few days. Thank you, Mr. Ventura, we hope to see you again very soon.
Back to School Parent Night - Middle and High School
Our middle and high school parents were invited for an experiential evening at M'KIS. Parents got to follow their child's schedule, find their classes, and meet their teachers.
Thank you to all of the parents who joined us for this informative and fun evening.
Congratulations - F1 In Schools
Congratulations to the M'KIS team (Team Arrow) on their participation at the F1 in Schools Malaysia competition last Saturday, May 19th, held at Garden International School Malaysia. There were 24 teams competing from 10 different international schools.
“F1 in Schools” is an international STEM competition, in which groups of students have to design and manufacture a miniature car, powered by CO2 cartridges. They are timed from the moment they are launched to when they pass the finish line by a computer.
Their best race time was 1.085 seconds and they were ranked 5th. Not too bad considering this was their first time in the competition. Their car was aerodynamic and well designed, all of which helped attain a quick time. The team has vowed to improve their reaction time (0.181seconds), and hope to beat their own record next year.
In addition to the race itself, teams had to produce a printed Portfolio explaining how the car was designed and tested, prepare a verbal presentation explaining the entire design process, as well as produce a pit display showcasing their works and advertising the team.
This was a long journey for Team Arrow. But it was worth it.

It fills us with a sense of pride when one of our students gets selected to represent Malaysia. Zoe, a grade 12 student, was recently selected to represent Malaysia in the Youth Touch Rugby World Cup in Malaysia. The team played against some of the top rugby playing nations in the world including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States.
“It was an honor to be selected to represent Malaysia and to play against the best in the world.”
Zoe was introduced to touch rugby in grade 9 by her friends and our long-standing touch rugby coach, Mr. Roderick. After only one season, the rugby bug had bitten and Zoe was hooked for life. Since then, Zoe has been part of a legacy that has won two division one ISAC titles, and a bronze medal in SEASAC division one. Zoe’s hope for this year is to build on these achievements and help lead another M’KIS team to touch rugby success.
Well done, Zoe. The M'KIS Community is very proud of you and we are certain that you will succeed in whatever you put your mind to. Keep pushing forward and crossing that tri-line.
Back to School 2018
On August 7, 2018, we welcome all our students back to school. This was an exciting day for both our students and our faculty. The school has undergone some amazing renovations over the summer and it's great to see everyone's responses to them.
Have a great year M'KIS.
