Sri Emas International School selected for exciting new Cambridge University Students’ Union digital project
Forward-thinking Malaysian school Sri Emas International School has been selected to appear in a forthcoming digital publication entitled Cambridge Strategies, which will showcase top educational institutions and employers from around the world, and provide insights into today’s ever-changing professional and academic landscapes.
Going live in early 2016 and published by Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) and its official publisher, St James’s House, Cambridge Strategies will include an eBook, website, app and marketing campaign aimed at high-calibre students.
“Cambridge Strategies is a groundbreaking global campaign that will deliver thought-provoking content in an interactive and user-friendly format,” says Richard Freed, Chief Executive of St James’s House. “The website will not only identify leaders in education and an extensive range of professional opportunities, but will also provide a digital platform for discussing some of the most pressing issues within education and employment – such as the increasing need for digital skills.”
The inclusion of Sri Emas International School will provide the project with invaluable insight. A pioneering educational institution from Malaysia where students aged 11 to 16 acquire real-life skills, the school combines high-quality education with a fresh approach to learning. This includes such innovations as their first game - ChemCaper: Act I – Petticles in Peril (which is available via the App Store and Google Play) – in which players are immersed in a Role-Playing Game (RPG) based on the Year 7 IGCSE chemistry syllabus – and an emphasis on entrepreneurial thinking, whether through lessons in finance or by developing start-up projects with the school’s support.
A truly international project, Cambridge Strategies will engage with an informed and influential audience of global talent, including the University of Cambridge’s 22,000 students, members of the Cambridge Alumni Association, more than 50,000 educational institutions from over 190 countries and the senior management of companies on all the major global indices.
“It’s a real privilege to work with CUSU and profiled organisations such as Sri Emas International School,” says Richard Freed. “Sri Emas International School has a great deal to offer, and we are very pleased to announce their input in this unique digital publication.”
