From the Leader’s Desk
Kingsley International School is a bully-free school. Our culture of care and trust is why our students, parents and teachers believe in the Kingsley way. The School’s bully-free policies are preventive and restorative as harsh discipline does not benefit children. Our primary concern is to safeguard a reassuring environment for every child, where no one is singled out or ignored. Through role-play, discussions, and daily interactions, kids are taught the importance of reflection and respect in an environment of trust right from the start. Anti-bullying awareness is also one of the three pillars of the Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum.
In Kingsley, we globalise our students’ character through healthy habits and positive learning. The Student Development Programme complements academic study to broaden our student’s world-view while cultivating healthy attitudes and good attributes. These experiences help kids develop and demonstrate leadership, initiative, discipline, reflection, communication skills, respect, and empathy. At the end of their education at Kingsley, kids go on to become more holistic, self-motivated and mindful individuals who are confident of their place in the world.

Kingsley provides an exciting and interesting problem-based blended learning, hands on activities, projects, learning journeys and is a keen promoter of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Students participate actively in CSR programs such as Orang Asli (ethnic group) Foundation, BORNEO Orang Utan Foundation, National Cancer Council (MAKNA) Foundation in Malaysia.
