Elementary School Principal


Mrs Eileen Quigley

It is a privilege to welcome you to St Joseph’s Institution International School Malaysia. As the Founding Principal of the Elementary School, I am honoured to have led the school through the opening phase in 2016. It has been a delight to see the school come alive to the sounds of children and teachers learning, living and laughing together.

At SJIIM we are passionate in our belief that each student will have a holistic, values driven education where they will realise their full potential. The Elementary School will provide a vibrant, warm and welcoming environment for children from 3 years old in our nursery to 11 year olds in Year 6.  

The Early Years curriculum for students aged 3-5 follows the English Early Years programme. This will nurture and develop the whole child, preparing them for the next stage of their learning journey. Students in Y1-Y6 will follow the stimulating and challenging International Primary Curriculum that is also based on the English National Curriculum as well as Singapore Math. Our rich language programme which includes daily Mandarin lessons, will prepare children for life in the 21st century global society.  

Outstanding teachers are key to the success of our new school. SJIIM have appointed committed professionals who will work tirelessly to ensure the academic, social, emotional and spiritual growth of the children in their care. They will deliver a stimulating and enriching International Primary Curriculum which will prepare the children for an ever changing world.  

SJIIM students will flourish and develop along with the school and will help us to shape it, acquiring skills and values which will stay with them for the rest of their lives. They will be encouraged, challenged and inspired to become creative, inquisitive and engaged learners with a firm sense of community and a determination to be the very best they can be. I look forward to working with parents, children and a wide range of partners to embed the Lasallian values and establish SJIIM as an outstanding school in Malaysia.
