Update 250320: Measures for reducing risk of COVID-19
As I am sure you are aware the Government has announced that the MCO (Movement Control Order) has been extended until 14th April 2020. Therefore, we will keep the school closed to everyone until this date. Please note that during this time, it is not permissible for parents to visit the school for any reason. We must adhere to the government’s measures.
Our main concern during this period is that you and your children see as little disruption to learning as possible and therefore will continue with online lessons as we have been doing so far. Obviously, this extension will cover the period of the APIS holidays from the 6th April to 17th April 2020 (inclusive) and our intention is to keep to these dates.
We continue to develop our approach to distance learning initiatives and we are amazed by the energy, enthusiasm and dedication of our students and teachers. We are also very grateful for the support parents are providing everyday so our children continue to learn. Please continue to check your email regularly for an update on how your child can access and use our distance learning materials.
We realise this is an unsettling period and we are here to provide support and advice to you and your child. We will continue to inform you of any news when we receive it. We will also be providing regular updates on our website and social media accounts.
Please continue to follow advice about COVID-19 and monitor your family’s health at home. If you or any family members have any respiratory symptoms (cough, cold, fever, sore throat), we ask that they seek medical advice. Please keep us informed if your child show or is diagnosed with COVID-19 so that we know why they are unable to attend online learning.
As you know the situation continues to change on a daily basis, and we will continue to monitor further developments very closely and keep in regular contact with you. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in our efforts to keep our students and the school environment safe.

Dear Parents and Students,
Following my earlier email to you this morning, I confirm the cancellation of Cambridge IGCSE exams for the May/June 2020 series. Cambridge International sent a circular to Asia Pacific International School today. Cambridge have commented that all grades and certificates will be given to candidates at the end of the course. They will work with schools to assess students’ achievements to support their next steps into A Levels and University courses. There will be further announcements from Cambridge International on Thursday 26th March 2020 (UK time). This information may not reach Malaysia until Friday.
I understand that this is a difficult and uncertain time, especially after you have worked so hard to prepare for the exams. I will reiterate that grades and certificates will be produced, exactly how has yet to be communicated by Cambridge. Please continue attending your online lessons, as completing the syllabus and school assessments may form part of this process. Please try to remain calm, we will make sure your hard work is rewarded.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, we will communicate more when we receive further clarification from Cambridge International.

Well done CHAMPIONS!
We are also hugely appreciative towards our accompanying teachers, Ms. Darwina and Mr. Yoga for giving their support and time to ensure that our students get the most amazing opportunities and experiences.
Thank you and massive well done to the team!
All of our students went on an adventure in Term 3.
Pre school learned all about the Fire Brigade, with a visit to the Bomba Station, and then had a lovely river Cruise in Putrajaya.
Year 1 got adventurous at Young Explorer – practing ther motor-skills and team work.
Year 5 also worked on those skills, but a little more ‘Extreme’ at EnerZ Indoor Extreme Park!’.
Year 2 got creative with cookies and candles. Year 3 went to learn about healthy eating at the Yakult factory and then saw the Ostriches, and Year 4 got Scientific at Petrosains.
Trips like these expand the horizon’s of our students and help them develop important skills outside the classroom. The students also had a GREAT time!
The last week of June saw 65 Year 6 and 7 students go on a great adventure to Ipoh on a 2 night, 3 day camp.
We started with some team building and an active ‘Amazing Race’, where the teams competed testing their communication, dexterity and problem solving skills.
The next day we set off on a 2 hour trek to a local Orang Asli village, walking through beautiful forest with amazing scenery. At the village we were treated to a locally cooked meal, and sat in the traditional house to enjoy our food. We then learned about blow pipes, weaving and snaring, before playing in a waterfall before returning home.
The final day saw the students take on their greatest challenge – some white water rafting in Gopeng. All the students had a wonderful time, and learned so much about independence and surviving on their own. The food and hospitality of Fuze Ecoteer, our hosts for the camp, was fantastic. A wonderful time was had by all!
APIS Year 6 have finished the year in style, with a series of events that have expanded the horizons of our young people, and celebrated their successes. A huge congratulations to our graduating class who start the Secondary phase of their education in September.
We celebrated a milestone in our students education at Tropicana Golf and Country Club by holding a graduation dinner for our Year 6 students. It was a spectacular evening – starting with the presentation of certificates, before a fantastic dinner.
The celebration continued with a heartwarming speech from our Prefect Leader, before a showcase of all our students talents. We had some wonderful piano and guitar performances, and uplifting dancing. There was also a selection of story telling, before Marzouk and Lulu took the stage to provide us a hilarious standup routine that had the whole audience in giggles.
We heard from our deputy prefect leader before the students joined together for a grand finale – High School Musical Style! Our prefect leaders – Vighna and Dhevina both spoke with great confidence and warmth about their Primary Years, thanking their teachers for everything they have done in the last 6 years to grow them emotionally and academically.
We were joined by Home Room teachers who had taken the students from Year 2, right up to Year 6 – and we were all touched to receive a gift at the end acknowledging their passion and creativity in nurturing these young minds.
A big thank you to the entire organising committee who produced a phenomenal gala event for our students and their families. Click here to view more photos
