Dual Language Programme (DLP) at Sekolah Tenby
Sekolah Tenby has been given the approval to teach Mathematics and Science in English under the Dual Language Programme (DLP) at three entry points (Standard 1, Standard 4 and Form 1) from 2016. All other classes will join these entry points after 2016.
The DLP is part of the Malaysian government's effort to uphold Bahasa Malaysia and strengthen the usage of English in schools. Only 300 schools across Malaysia have been selected (148 primary schools and 152 secondary schools) to participate in the programme.
Sekolah Tenby has been using the bi-lingual approach in the delivery of the national curriculum all these years. The programme supports and reiterates our ethos of providing national education with international approaches at Tenby Schools and our parents are strongly in support of this.
The DLP at Sekolah Tenby will be rolled out as the schedule below.
Sekolah Tenby follows the Malaysian National Curriculum in both the Primary and Secondary Schools. The Primary School follows the Malaysian National Primary School Curriculum that culminates in the UPSR examination by the Malaysian Examination Syndicate in Standard 6. With English as the primary mode of communication, the school enhances the strengths of the local curriculum amidst a vibrant, international environment that emphasizes the use of ICT as an integral learning and teaching tool and encourages students' active participation in the entire learning process. The Secondary School offers the Malaysian KBSM Secondary Curriculum from Form 1 to Form 5. The school is an accredited examination centre for the PT3 and SPM examinations. The students have the opportunity to learn and interact within an international community, as both Sekolah Tenby and Tenby International School are located on the same campus.
