Canadian International School opens in Phnom Penh
A lush garden, a colourful shaded playground, bright and open classrooms, state-of-the-art smart boards and a full-sized pool — the Canadian International School (CIS) of Phnom Penh is the perfect place for your little ones to learn and play. Situated within the gates of the exclusive Bassac Garden City, CIS is currently accepting students for its preschool and kindergarten classes. “Young learning is very important,” principal Donna Trafford, a 40-year educational system veteran, says. “It can determine who your child becomes.” With its internationally recognised Canadian curriculum, and a full roster of Canadian teachers, local and expatriate parents alike can be sure that their children will be receiving a top-notch early education. CIS also offers after-school classes in French and Mandarin, swimming lessons and other extracurricular activities. With plans to open an elementary and high school by 2014, CIS promises to become a leader in private education in Cambodia.
