  • Message from the Principal

    Dear Parents, Friday 19th June 2015 Thank you for reading this Newsletter Too much to do The Tenby Adult Community Choir is due to perform a song as part of this Sundays Saujana Coffee Concert at 11:00hrs which is titled Too much to do... This could very easily be the theme song for the whole Tenby School community. It is impossible in the few words written each week in the Newsletter to capture all that is going on in this very busy School. Much of the successes of the School are achieved by many who quietly, and modestly, work away, often unseen and unsung.

    Thank you pupils, staff and parents for making this School so special. Year 11, 12, 13 Awards Evening, United Nations and Alumni Association

    The occasion was graced with the presence of the new British High Commissioner Vicki Treadell who gave out special awards, In her speech, the High Commissioner spoke graciously about the Tenby Schools Group, and her own childhood roots at Ipoh, but in particular addressed her comments to the pupils present, offering recognition of what they have achieved to date, and how they will have more important choices to make about their future lives. In his opening remarks, the Campus Principal spoke about the many achievements of senior pupils throughout the academic year, and in particular highlighted three occasions which typified the pupils spirit and camaraderie; the amazing Charity Carnival in March, last Fridays Prom, and last weekends 2 day Model United Nations Conference. All 3 events were really organised entirely by the students in a most mature, and thoroughly professional way.

    Many countries have United Nations Youth Associations, but Malaysia does not have one yet. Perhaps another seed was sown last weekend, which will take root, and there will be a United Nations Youth Association of Malaysia, based here at Tenby in 2016. The British High Commissioner last night offered her support in this quest.

  • There is considerable excitement at Tenby about the Sixth Form for this September. The School is delighted that so many Year 11s are staying on, and students from other international schools are joining Tenby. For those leaving the School this term, it is hoped that the students will look back with fond memories of this special place. An Alumni Association database (a former pupils Association) was started last year; the School will intend to keep in contact with those who have shared the Tenby vision. Special Olympics Malaysia

    The School was lucky enough to host the official send-off for the Malaysian Special Olympics team that will be flying to Los Angeles to take part in the World Special Olympics. Over 30 of these great athletes were here to play two football matches against the staff of Uniqlo, who are the main sponsors of the Malaysian Special Olympics Team. The matches were ably refereed by Messrs. Robinson and Campus Principal who, it was rumoured, still looked remarkably fit ! The games were followed by some food and speeches. Tenby is proud to be involved with these great people and we look forward to increasing our partnership with the Special Olympics.

  • Sports Day at Panasonic Stadium: Congratulations to the winners Falcon House, and to ALL who participated There will be more details elsewhere in this Newsletter, but mention must be made here of a very happy day of competition amongst SST and TIS pupils. Students conduct and sportsmanship was exemplary, and determination and commitment were evident in every track and field event. The whole event was very well organised by the PE Staff who together with colleagues ensured an early prompt start and early finish! Thank you to those parents who supported, and a special thank you to the PA and Tenby Korean parents who organised food and refreshment.

  • Tickets for School Play (30th June, 1st, 2nd, 3rd July) and School Concert (Sunday 12th July): in The Auditorium Many tickets for these events have been sold already. Please note The Auditorium capacity is limited. Please note elsewhere in this Newsletter about Play ticket sales from the Ticket Station in the Senior Cafeteria. The Concert tickets go on sale from next Monday 22nd June; please see Mandy Cheong in the Principals Office. It is intended that all children in Year 5 TIS and SST Std.5 will take part. Dear Parents of these pupils, please do purchase tickets and support your sons and daughters. More success for Feirish Feirish Nor, being the youngest golfer in The National Team, has once again gained pride for Tenby SEP (KL) by representing Selangor State for The Malaysian Schools National Championship (MSSM) held at Bukit Jawi Gold Resort, Penang on 6th June and won Silver Medal for Boys U12 and Gold Medal for Team Event for Boys U12. Feirish will be participating in the FCG International Junior Golf Championship, The IMG Academy Junior World Championship and The Taylormade World Stars of Junior Golf Tournament in near future. We wish this little man with huge passion a great success. Every great achievement is the Victory of a flaming heart
