Five students from the Australian International School Malaysia (AISM) were recently chosen to take part in The Asia-Pacific Forum for Science from 19 to 24 July in Taipei, Taiwan. The forum saw the participation of students from 13 countries in Asia. To be selected for one of the six Malaysian Team positions, AISM students were interviewed by a panel of academics from Malaysian Universities and the National Association for the Gifted Malaysia (NAGCM) and won five out of six seats in the Malaysian contingent. It was indeed a great honour and achievement for the School and is indicative of the confidence and ability of our students to perform both academically and in a global context.

AISM students Ashley Boudeville, Alexander Kam, Airyl Shazli, Qi Lin Kong, and Samuel Wong, supported by AISM teacher Mrs Alison Brand and staff from NAGCM attended the six-day event which provided students with opportunities to brainstorm ideas, work collaboratively and creatively, meet new friends and share cultures. They participated in an exciting range of forums, hands-on projects, presentations and cultural events.

“Being part of the forum was an unforgettable experience. It was not only a wonderful opportunity to work with the students from other countries, but also to build friendships with people from all over the world. This event has triggered my desire and ambition to work internationally with others in the future, to create a better place and a brighter future for the next generation. It was truly a phenomenal week in Taiwan!”, said Qi Lin Kong, a Year 7 student.
