Ryan ball,  head of Design Technology at Garden International School. His three words to describe GIS are; busy, fun and community.

“I am the head of design technology at Garden International School. I’ve been at GIS this is my third year”.

What are the main strengths of the school?
In D&T we’re really fortunate to have fantastic facilities to work with. We also give our students real-life opportunities with a founding school for youth made Malaysia which is a partnership working with local industry both companies, design companies to try and really contextualize work for students so they can really understand what design technology is for them and hopefully they can see future career paths that they can go into with design technology as a background.

Do you enjoy working at the school?
GIS is a fantastic place to be. In all my years of teaching this the one I’ve really enjoyed the most and the one that I think I’ve developed most is the professional is it really is having shoulders above lots and lots of other schools it’s a great place to work.

Would you recommend Garden International School as a place to work?
I definitely recommend GIS as a place to work with my friends. This is the third country that I’ve worked in and fifth school all the colleagues are really supportive the students are fantastic and HEY Malaysian is a pretty nice place to live as well.

What three words would you use to describe the school?
The three words I’d use to describe GIS are busy, fun and community.

What does “We are GIS” mean to you?
We are GIS means to me, be a proud family we celebrate the success of everybody we also help each other out when times a little bit harder so a big community and a big partnership.
