Every fortnight at the Australian International School Malaysia (AISM), students welcome refugee children from the Chin Student Organisation (CSO) to join their classes and a Chin-centered Co Curricular Activity (CCA). AISM introduced the Chin Immersion Program 9 years ago to instill service learning values in students by giving back to the community. The program gives the Chin students a glimpse of how an international school is like. At AISM, Chin students learnt their way around the school, use classroom timetables, and visit mainstream classes. They participated in lessons such as swimming and inquiry project, enabling them to experience a more holistic education. Some Chin students who went through the programme have gone on to do really well academically and even won scholarships from universities. Indeed, a small act of kindness can go a long way. AISM students and community will continue to pledge their support towards the refugee community in Malaysia.
