During Jane's time as a KLASS parent, she chaired the PTA for a number of years, and was a governor too. It was an absolutely fascinating time in the development of the school to be on the board of governors, a period of rapid change as we worked on the concept and realisation of the secondary school.
Together with a friend, also called Jane, she run a social enterprise in Bristol, England working with young people with learning disabilities, to improve the appalling job prospects they face on leaving education. They both have a child with Down Syndrome and we are aware that educational opportunities are so much better nowadays, with young people reaching the end of education with good skill sets.
So they started Step and Stone, a bakery, creating high quality award winning lavosh flatbread, as a vehicle to help solve the problem. Through this endeavour they developed a rigorous training programme, covering key skill areas needed by the disadvantaged for the workplace. KLASSics was there to hear more.... read more

On 2nd July 2020, we saw the tragic loss of our beloved colleague, with the sudden passing of Shamirah Nurhaida Low. Mostly known to her colleagues and the school community lovingly as Mira, she joined The Alice Smith School almost a decade ago on 21st December 2010.
Mira made significant contributions to our school through her utmost dedication and commitment, never forgetting to put joy into everything she does. She will be remembered as an energetic and caring colleague, always offering a big smile to students and parents whom she met at work. She was also a supporter of philanthropy, volunteering her time for the school’s foundation charitable work.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. Roger Schultz, our Head of School, shares his memories of Mira.....read more

Congrats to our students for making it to the semi-finals of the GSL (Global Social Leaders) this year! Our successful teams have focused on two issues that are close to their hearts - recycling and fast fashion. Watch their video to see more!
Covid-19 has unleashed an unprecedented global health emergency and caused significant economic turmoil. During times of crisis, it’s important that we reach out and care for one another’s wellbeing and safety. Since the Malaysian government enforced the Movement Control Order on 18th March, to the best of our ability, we have been conducting the essential business of the school remotely. Home learning programmes for our students commenced since 17th March and the school will remain closed until the end of April for Easter. We have already put in place a business continuity plan to navigate the school during this unprecedented time and we shall continue to support our alumni in all possible ways.
To help you maintain normality during these challenging times and keep up our social connections, do join #KLASSBlog for some useful resources shared by our counsellor. Stay safe!
