"The fair provides an excellent avenue for parents who are looking for international schools and for schools to reach out to a larger base of parents. The fair is therefore the perfect opportunity for parents who are considering international education for their children to find out more about their options."
Education Destination Malaysia: Guide to International & Private Schools is the official publication of the Private & International School Fairs in Malaysia organised by Mint Communications.
Since the quota for Malaysian students in international schools was lifted in 2012, Malaysian parents are beginning to explore the option of sending their children to international schools.
Therefore, there was a need to have a fair that focused solely on bringing together private and international schools in one location in order for parents to find out more about educational options in these schools. Furthermore, there is a growing expatriate community in Malaysia who want quality education for their children.
These fairs aim to provide the ideal platform for schools to meet with parents, and for parents to find a suitable school for their children in three strategic locations: Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor.
A major advantage of visiting the fair is that parents will be able to meet with representatives, including principals and teachers, from these schools, and compare curriculum, fees, and facilities among others, and find a suitable school for their children, at one central and convenient location.
They will be able to meet representatives from many schools in one location during the fair. When parents find a suitable school during the fair, they can then pay the school a visit. This will save time and effort.
Our recent fair in KL, held on 5-6 November 2016 at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre attracted over 14,000 visitors. The fair also saw the return of the Learning is Fun segment which consists of interesting workshops and activities for children.
The fairs in Johor and Penang were held on 8 Oct and 16 Oct at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, Johor (Iskandar Puteri) and g Hotel Gurney, Penang respectively.
Visitors will also be able to get a copy of the Education Destination Malaysia: Guide to International & Private Schools during these fairs.
