About Us

The Australian International Schools Association (AISA) was formally instituted at a meeting of Principals and Heads of School held in Kuala Lumpur on April 27, 2012. The member schools are keen to promote cooperation and interaction between our teachers and students, sponsor professional development activities, collaborate in the recruitment of high quality staff and jointly promote the advantages of an Australian education in the Asian/Middle East region.

Each of the ten schools in our association has its own unique way of adapting Australian curriculum and teaching methodologies to the needs of their local community but in the spirit of international education we all seek to promote universal human values.


AISA Games 2017

This year's AISA Games were held at the Pejaten Secondary campus, AIS Indonesia, Jakarta. After a welcoming speech by Brenton Hall (AIS Indonesia Principal) a talented group of teaching assistants from the Kemang campus entertained over 200 students and teachers from AISA schools around the region with a traditional dance performance.

An event like this is an enormous logistical challenge but once again the enthusiasm, teamwork and good will of AIS teachers and admin staff was on full display. Well done everybody!
