Greetings from an Australian who has moved into Kuching to help establish a new International School, which is part of the family of schools named after St. Joseph. I have had some experience in Australian Boarding Schools with Malaysian students. So, I have limited understanding of what is ahead of me!

We will follow the Cambridge curriculum in English, Maths and Science, and we will be implementing Internationally recognized methods in the Teaching-Learning process. We hope to establish relationships with other Secondary and Tertiary facilities in the South East Asian and Pacific regions.

I look forward to working with the Family of St. Joseph’s Schools in the coming school year and beyond. Our Marist Brothers Founder, St. Marcellin, wanted all students worldwide to have a decent, loving and caring education to help produce “Good Christians and good citizens.”

May we all continue to fulfill his dream.

Br. Paul Hough, FMS,


St Joseph’s International School Kuching
