Date: 26 May 2022
Time: 5:30pm – 8:30pm
Venue: Royal Selangor Club (Kiara)
This event, sponsored by Australian International School Malaysia (AISM) will see the Principal, Mr Simon Brooks, talk about ‘The Purpose and Promise of Education’.
The Purpose and Promise of Education
What is the point of school? How do we define the meaning of a quality education? Traditionally, the value of school has been measured in terms of academic results, often in terms of standardised tests that allow for the easy ranking of students across many different settings. Are these results the true markers of quality? Is this really why we send our children to school?
What if schools took the development of students’ intellectual character as their highest calling?
In this provocative talk, Simon Brooks, Principal of AISM, will explore the question of what it means to deliver a quality education, presenting a new vision of what this might look like. He will also address other big questions such as: Why is this important? How might we get there and how do we realise this vision? And what does all of this have to do with me?
