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@ knew­ or knew­ton.
