Sekolah Sri Tenby (SST) is set up to offer quality education based on the Malaysian National Curriculum commencing January 2015. We are committed to educate our children to be active, effective and independent learners in the acquisition of knowledge and skills through an innovative learning approach in an international setting and safe environment. We share the same campus with our sister school, Tenby International School (TIS), and will jointly contribute to the ethos befitting an effective school.
Our mission is to provide students with knowledge, critical skills and the right attitude to achieve success. Problem solving and higher order thinking skills are paramount in today’s challenging situations and students develop these skills right here, in school. Our schooling approach will cater for the germination and development of such skills so that each student is fully equipped for their future undertakings in their academic and social lives.
We will provide opportunities for students to enhance their expressive communication skills by the learning of music, drama and fine arts. We will strive to create a generation of young people who are competent in the use of the English language apart from their mother tongue and the national language. The acquisition of knowledge in Science and Mathematics will continue to be our priority and the learning of these subjects in English and Bahasa Malaysia will see the further development of English as a language of Science and Technology. The variety of sporting facilities provided on campus will present as avenues to cultivate the love for sports, enjoyment and healthy living.
Unity in diversity will also be fostered on a daily basis so that each child will grow to learn to live and live harmoniously in an authentic and diverse environment. It is hoped that all these will augur well for their future work life, which will promote good values in everyday living.
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.
The DLP at Tenby Schools will be rolled out as the schedule below.
