BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Zaliza Alias

Seeing the need to create a path in Malaysia for an English-based preschool, ingrained with Islamic values with a vibrant and cheerful education approach, Zaliza left her profession as a lecturer and opened the first Genius Aulad branch back in December of 2000, which is now having more than 70 branches of the high performance preschool centres under the Genius Aulad brand.

Driven by the need to improve every facet of education, she eventually set up IDRISSI International School, the first Islamic school registered with the WWF Eco-School organization with other board of directors in 2015. Adding to that, she fosters the school with a homely, safe, and value-based environment to develop social and global awareness among students.
