Prince of Wales Island International School (POWIIS)
The first in Penang to utilise multipurpose electronic ID cards, POWIIS was established in 2011 with ideals firmly rooted in the British education system. Emphasising academic endeavour and an environment where children are treated as individuals, its pastoral system ensures personal tutors are responsible for each student’s overall wellbeing.
Its specialised facilities complement the diverse extra-curricular offerings and experienced teachers provide 24-hour supervision and support at its boarding facilities. POWIIS graduates have been known to attend prestigious universities like Imperial College London and Berklee College of Music. An alumnus of Kings College London herself, Elysia Ong is CEO of POWIIS.
