Australia’s first private school online marketplace, School Places, has come to Malaysia. School Places is a free platform that matches Malaysian parents and international families with vacancies in private or international schools in Malaysia or in Australia, based on configurable criteria such as year level and suburb or postcode. This simplifies the school search process for newly arrived families or those who are on their way to relocating to Malaysia – the site can even be used to search for scholarships.
