Elementary School Life

Parent Communication

A great partnership between home and school is essential for success at ISKL. In order to promote effective two-way communication, the Early Childhood program and Elementary School employs various methods of communication using technology and parent conferences.

School Day

Elementary school hours are from 8:00 am to 2:45 pm. For Prep Reception and Prep Junior, the school hours are from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

Busing Services

ISKL runs a safe and efficient bus service for the convenience of students and parents. All routes are monitored by a ride-along bus assistant, who will drop off students at their home or nearest designated location.

An adult must accompany an Elementary School student to the bus pick up location and collect the student at the drop off point. Students not met by the designated adult will return to school to await pick by their parent. You can contact the school busing office at +603 4259-5740 or click here for more information.


Students are expected to wear the appropriate school uniform. Only light blue or white shirts and white or blue bottoms sold at the ISKL Panther Store are allowed. Students are also required to wear a PE uniform, athletic shoes, and a hat for outdoor physical education classes.

Identity Cards

ISKL students are issued ID cards must accompany students whenever on campus. ID cards are required for checking out books from the library and accessing computers/printers in the computer labs.

Dining Facilities

The school canteen is open from 7:45 am to 2:45 pm. Hot and cold beverages, as well as snacks (baked goods and fresh fruit) are available throughout the day.

Students in Prep Senior and Grades 1-5 have an all-you-can-eat buffet lunch menu, including western and local dishes. ISKL employs a dietician who provides advice regarding nutritional balance and healthy preparation practices. Students may also bring their own food from home.

Each child is issued a reusable POS swipe card (ID card) onto which money is credited. The card may then be used to purchase items from the cafeteria and the bookstore.

Red Hats

Every Grade 5 student has the opportunity to serve on the Red Hat Leadership Team. The Red Hats make the morning announcements, assist at school assemblies and coordinate many community service projects. Red Hats are role models for other students as they follow the Melawati Way.


PALs are welcoming ambassadors for new students, and serve as an important part of our transition team. PALs introduce new students to ISKL, their class and the school routines. They guide them through the hallways, canteen, playground, library and bus areas of the school. There are PALs at each grade level who set the example for welcoming new students.
