Colette Irvine

Colette Irvine Position: Year 5 Team

I grew up in the small town of Dunblane in Scotland before moving to Dundee where I attended Dundee University and gained a B.Ed (Hons) in Primary Education.

During my ten years teaching in Scotland I had the opportunity to work across a variety of Year groups and take part in research projects relating to phonics development and implementing a growth mindset approach in education.

I have a passion for travelling and after visiting Malaysia 6 years ago, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to move to Kuala Lumpur in 2016. For the past 4 years I have worked in an International school in Kuala Lumpur. During this time I worked as Year Leader and Preschool Coordinator.

I am passionate about education and believe children should be provided with opportunities that enable them to acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and demonstrate their understanding in multiple ways.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, exercising and reading.
