National (Malaysian) Curriculum
Standard 1 - 6 (Age 7 - 12)
The Malaysian National Curriculum is committed to developing the child holistically along intellectual, spiritual, emotional and physical dimensions as reflected in the National Educational Philosophy.
Programmes and initiatives to develop non-academic components are present both during formal class time as well as through a variety of after-school co-curricular activities. All these will foster individual talents and interests along with building leadership skills.
We are preparing children for the needs of the 21st century, emphasizing the understanding of the curriculum and its needs for a wide range of subjects offered at Primary levels. The subjects are as follows:
- English Language, Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin Language
- Science and Mathematics
- Islamic Education/Moral Education
- Physical and Health Education
- Art, Music and History
- ICT and Design & Technology
Furthermore, for English, we supplement the Malaysian textbooks with Oxford International Primary English Student Anthology books. This is to ensure that our students English Literacy skills are enhanced.
SST’s Primary children progress to Secondary School with a love for learning and enthusiasm for more activity participation, and enjoy continuous care by teachers.
We fully comply with the Ministry of Education, Malaysia requirements.
Dual Language Programme (DLP) at Sekolah Sri Tenby
Sekolah Sri 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 Sri 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.
We offer our students a large selection of co-curricular activities (CCAs) including sports, academic and art clubs. They are a superb way of deepening existing interests and skills and acquiring new ones. Students sign up for the clubs at the beginning of each year and will participate for the full length of the academic year. All students should aim to be involved in at least two CCAs each year.
The activities are largely free, though some specialist activities or those off-site may incur a charge.
3.00pm to 4.00pm
Students who are not involved in any CCAs on any particular day are permitted to go home at 3.00pm
