From the Chairman of the Council of Governors

"Change is a necessary evil and as we move into the next chapter in Fairview, it is always a privilege to pen a few thoughts for the year ahead. Apart from just physical changes in infrastructure in all of our campuses making them more student-friendly, wireless with high-speed broadband services and providing the much-required facilities befitting an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, the academic faculty has seen major transformation.

Continuous professional development, the backbone of any learning organisation, has seen the introduction of consistent and sustainable initiatives in a calculated move to ensure that teachers are thoroughly skilled and informed of the latest in educational initiatives. With four campuses authorised for the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP) of the IB, and the only schools in Malaysia to contain the two programmes under one roof, it is our duty to only offer nothing but the best in professional development for our teachers.

Our teachers have over the years attended numerous workshops overseas and visited other renowned IB world schools to share learning experiences. Weekly school workshops are made convenient by technology. Video conferencing among centres has played a part in promoting a sense of family among campuses but more importantly and making teaching and learning more meaningful through shared knowledge. While preserving the individuality of each campus, video conferencing has contributed immensely to a learning community.

Fairview continues its laborious yet rewarding journey of bringing the best of 21st-century education to the masses through the establishment of new campuses in Ipoh, Kuantan, Port Dickson and a new state of the art campus in Johor Bahru.

Fairview is a trusted name in education for all regardless of caste, creed, race or colour and as Fairview heralds its 35th birthday, I can only vouch for better years ahead."

Mr Daniel Chian, Chairman.
