In this opportunity, I would like to dedicate this award to all our educators and staff of Genius Aulad, IDRISSI International School and Sekolah Tinta ㅡ our subsidiaries, for their hard work and dedication,” said Julie Wong, the Chief Executive Officer of GAINS Education Group.
COVID-19 resulted in school shuts; temporarily and permanently. These challenges, however, did not deter the passionate group of educators and staff under GAINS to continue embarking on the new landscape of education and recording its year-to-year growth. Despite the effects of the pandemic continuing to be felt across the world, GAINS remains focused on the recovery and growth which includes education exports to Qatar and its future plans for edtech.
Julie added, “We are moving progressively towards our target which is mainly to bring our education and values cross-border. We will open IDRISSI School @ EduCity, Iskandar Puteri in September this year which is accessible from Singapore, Malaysia Qatar International School by 2023 and more franchises of Genius Aulad and other schools under GAINS. GAINS will also venture into edtech solutions, and is expected to gain increased growth by 2025,” added Julie, as the company gears towards digital transformation and future-proof education.
