A decade ac­com­plished, a decade forth

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION NORTH -

ES­TAB­LISHED as an in­sti­tute for ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion on Jan 1, 2002, Sen­tral Col­lege Pe­nang be­came the new ed­u­ca­tional bea­con in the heart of Ge­orge Town upon gain­ing ap­proval and recog­ni­tion from the Malaysian Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion on July 25 the same year.

The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion up­graded the sta­tus of Sen­tral to that of a ‘col­lege’ in 2006.

At Sen­tral, stu­dents are not only groomed to ex­cel aca­dem­i­cally in their cho­sen fields, but also to de­velop a cre­ative and in­no­va­tive state of mind.

Af­ter over a decade, the col­lege will soon move to a spank­ing new cam­pus at Me­nara Sen­tral lo­cated at 3, Le­buh Pe­nang. With the change of ad­dress, the new en­vi­ron­ment will def­i­nitely be a breath of fresh air for ev­ery­one con­cerned.

Me­nara Sen­tral is a 14-storey build­ing with five car park lev­els. Here, stu­dents can en­joy high-speed Wifi ac­cess while over­look­ing the quaint her­itage city and pic­turesque seav­iew of the Pe­nang Port.

Spa­cious lec­ture rooms that are fully fur­nished with top notch teach­ing and learn­ing equip­ment and the­atre rooms with LCD pro­jec­tors oc­cupy Lev­els 9 and 10.

Level 7 houses five com­puter labs with ded­i­cated high-speed In­ter­net ac­cess and com­put­ers that are in­di­vid­u­ally in­stalled with the lat­est Mi­crosoft 8.1 soft­ware.

Coun­selling and en­quiries ser­vices at Level 6 are avail­able seven days a week.

Those in­ter­ested should con­tact 042621888 or log on to www.sen­tral.edu. my. Stu­dents are also wel­comed to visit the Sen­tral Open Day tomorrow and Sun­day.

The new au­di­to­rium is equipped with a state-of-the-art sound sys­tem.
