Tenby awards Ilmu-Tenby schol­ar­ship to top stu­dent

The Borneo Post - - HOME -

MIRI: Tenby Schools Miri awarded its first Ilmu-Tenby schol­ar­ship to out­stand­ing Year 10 stu­dent Phyl­lis Ong.

Prin­ci­pal Jeanne Denyer said the schol­ar­ship is given based on over­all aca­demic per­for­mance or ex­cep­tional tal­ent in the arts or sports.

“Phyl­lis has proved that she proudly de­serves this accolade,” Denyer said in a press re­lease yes­ter­day.

She added that Ong would serve as a role model for other stu­dents.

The schol­ar­ship is open to Year 10 stu­dents (equiv­a­lent to Form 4), who are ei­ther al­ready study­ing at Tenby Schools or wish to study at the schools, and cov­ers school term fees for a pe­riod of two years.

The press re­lease said many ap­pli­cants were called for in­ter­views and the fi­nal de­ci­sion was made by a se­lec­tion com­mit­tee.

On other de­vel­op­ments, Denyer said Tenby Schools Miri now op­er­ates dual cur­ricu­lums – pro­vid­ing pupils with the op­por­tu­nity to study an in­ter­na­tional cur­ricu­lum at pri­mary and sec­ondary level, or a Malaysian na­tional cur­ricu­lum at Seko­lah Sri Tenby, which opened at the same cam­pus in Jan­uary.

“This will give more op­tions for the com­mu­nity of Miri who might want their chil­dren to be ed­u­cated in the Malaysian na­tional cur­ricu­lum but would like their chil­dren to de­velop in­ter­na­tional­mind­ed­ness through exposure to the di­ver­sity of Tenby school teach­ers and stu­dents,” she said.

Hav­ing been recog­nised by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion as the only 5-Star school here last year, Tenby Schools Miri con­tin­ues to strive for ex­cel­lence with en­cour­ag­ing re­sults in the re­cent In­ter­na­tional Gen­eral Cer­tifi­cate of Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion ( IGCSE) where 35 per cent of stu­dents achieved grade A* or grade A.

She at­trib­uted that suc­cess to the school’s com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lent stan­dards of ed­u­ca­tion as well as the ded­i­ca­tion of teach­ers and hard work of pupils.

Tenby Schools Miri forms part of the Tenby Group of schools com­pris­ing in­ter­na­tional and pri­vate schools in Ipoh, Perak; Pe­nang; Se­tia Eco Park, Shah Alam; Se­tia Eco Gar­dens, Jo­hor; and Se­tia EcoHill, Se­menyih.
