Award-winning Australian author Alice Pung visited with our Year 11 & 12 English students yesterday to share her story about growing up as an ‘other’ in Australia and the state of multiculturalism in Australia and Singapore. She also spoke about the ripple effects of history on a first-generation immigrant family.

Her work has been published internationally and featured in high school and university curricula around Australia. Alice was shortlisted as The Sydney Morning Herald Best Young Australian Novelist in 2015 for her young adult novel, Laurinda. She is in Singapore as part of the Words Go Round, the outreach program of the Singapore Writers Festival for schools and the community organised by the National Arts Council.

Australian International School, Singapore

The Australian International School is the only southern-hemisphere school in Singapore that offers an Australian curriculum-based global education for students from the age of 2 months to 18 years.

This truly international education begins with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB PYP) from Preschool to Year 5, Australia Curriculum for Years 6 to 8, Cambridge IGCSE in Years 9 and 10, and the Higher School Certificate (HSC) or International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) for Years 11 and 12.

Australian International School has a vision to be known internationally as an institution which represents educational excellence in all aspects of its operation. Our school philosophy commits us fully to the notion of a holistic, rounded education, which cherishes the arts and sports as well as academics as essential dimensions of each student’s education. We are equally committed to teaching our students to have a moral commitment to making our world a better place as reflective, caring, knowledgeable and principled people. At AIS, each child is special, each is important.
