Tenby Schools is now called Knewton Global Schools
MIRI: Tenby Schools is now officially known as Knewton Global Schools under a new operator Bonanza Educare Sdn Bhd.
Knewton Global Schools will continue to operate three schools on its Senadin campus, an international British school, private national school, and preschool, for pupils aged three to 16 years.
The school in a statement yesterday said the new name marks a milestone in the school’s 98-year history, and a reputation as one of the longest established international schools in Malaysia. Originally situated in Piasau, then known as Piasau School, it served the expatriate community of mainly oil workers here.
In 2011, the growing school selected Tenby Educare to operate the school, and moved to its current campus in Senadin. It also added a Private National school that year to meet the diverse demands of the community.
In 2016, the founder of Tenby Schools, Dato Lim Si Boon, sold Tenby Educare but remained as the landowner of its Miri campus. Forming a new education group, Bonanza Educare Sdn Bhd, the team welcomed back the Miri campus in August 2019.
Bonanza Educare continued to build an educational portfolio of international and national schools, pre-schools and enrichment centres across Malaysia.
“Our new name and look is combined with a renewed ambition to provide the best opportunities for our young people to be the best they can be, no matter what challenges they may be facing, said Lam Wee Sim the principal of Knewton Global Schools.
“We will host musical, artistic and sporting competitions during the official naming of the schools on Facebook on June 5.
“The campus is still closed since the Movement Control Order was enforced on March 18. However, our students and teachers have adapted successfully to a distance learning programme.”
Meanwhile, Knewton Global Schools is now open for enrolment, with a virtual admissions process and a new scholarship scheme. To find out more call the school at 085 – 491 526/014-912 6535, or miri@ knewton.edu.my or knewton. edu.my
