Prince of Wales Island International School, Penang, Malaysia

Public Holiday on Monday 4th September

POWIIS will observe the Prime Minister’s declaration of a public holiday on Monday 4th September following Malaysia’s success at the SEA games. The school will now open for the new term on TUESDAY 5th September. Reception arrangements for new students will take place on that day.

Boarders with travel arrangements in place will be welcomed as expected on Sunday 3rd September. It is essential that any wishing to defer their arrival contact respective Heads of Halls, to confirm, to ensure all expected students are fully accounted for on Sunday.

We are very much looking forward to getting underway with the new school year, and regret the disruption this has caused whilst sharing in the Prime Minister’s pleasure at the country’s success.
