The Art of Composing Haikus

Year 9 students of Rafflesia International School, Puchong practiced writing Haikus – Japanese poems consisting of three short lines that do not rhyme, with five syllables in the first and third lines and seven syllables in the middle line. Traditional haikus touch upon nature and is a snapshot of a moment in time.

 

Leading the Way in Technological Education

Today, Rafflesia International School, Puchong, and Rafflesia International School, Kajang, entered a momentous collaboration with UBTECH Robotics Corporation, the world’s leading company in humanoid and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology.

 

At the historic ceremony, the Principals of both schools, Miss Chandra and Mr Andrew, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Mr JC Ng, country manager for UBTECH, to become one of the pioneer schools in Malaysia to provide this innovative technology programme to students. UBTECH has worked with a range of global companies – such as Apple, Tencent, Amazon and Disney to design robots for commercial and business use.

AI and Robotic Education Programme now in Rafflesia Schools

The carefully structured AI programme will be an important part of the school curriculum and will enable students to develop essential coding and programming skills with meaningful links to learning in other subjects such as Maths and Science. With a strong focus upon higher order thinking skills, the programme will enable learners to make complex calculations, formulate links in learning and analyse data from their exciting discoveries.

 

In doing so, it is part of our mission to ensure that students are fully prepared with the skills that they need to thrive as international citizens in our rapidly changing world.
