Alice Smith Celebrates 70 Great Years!

Alice Smith Celebrates 70 Great Years!

The Alice Smith School is one of the oldest and most prestigious British international schools in Asia offering the National Curriculum for England. The school was started by Mrs Alice Smith at her home in Jalan Eaton, Kuala Lumpur, in 1946. At the end of the Second World War, Mrs Smith started teaching her own daughter and soon attracted a loyal following of other expatriate children. When she left Malaya for Australia in 1950, the parents of children attending the school formally incorporated the Alice Smith Schools Association. In this remarkable not-for-profit association, the student body comprised the founding nations of Britain, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia. Today, each one of our 1,600 students from over 50 nations benefits from the legacy left by Mrs Smith in 1946. Thousands of students, staff and parents have been part of our success story.

“Alice Smith has done so much for me. I was able to play in orchestras especially the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, climbed the second highest mountain in Africa, and even received a scholarship to play the flute in America. Alice Smith was more than a school to me,” shared Ellery Nadarajah, Head Boy 2012-2013. Ellery is currently pursuing Medicine at University College London, UK.

The school looks forward to commemorating its 70th Anniversary Celebrations in 2016, with a series of events. To kick-start with a bang, the school will be hosting a 70th Anniversary Alumni Get-together in London on 16th January 2016. This is a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends as well as making new contacts. Said Roger Schultz, Head of School, “The 70th year milestone is a great time to celebrate our past, present and future. We are extremely proud of all our alumni!”
