His Royal Highness the Regent of Perak Raja Nazrin Shah officiated the opening of Tenby Schools Ipoh on Thursday, March 27.
The private school, now located in a purpose-built university-style campus in the township of Bandar Meru Raya, is equipped with state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities, offering children better and more exciting opportunities to pursue academic and extracurricular activities.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Director of Tenby Schools Malaysia, Dato’ Lim Si Boon said, “The school has come a long way since 2004. From an enrolment of less than 400 students, today we have nearly 1200 students from the ages of 3 to 19 years old, and a team of 200 teachers and staff.”
Invited guests were entertained to songs and dances performed by students of the school. The ceremony was broadcasted live to all classrooms within the campus and the other four Tenby schools in Penang, Shah Alam, Johor Bahru and Miri.
The occasion was also graced by Perak Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri DiRaja Dr Zambry Abd Kadir and Chairman of Tenby Schools Malaysia, Dato’ Seri Fadzil Che Wan.
Accompanied by Dato’ Lim, HRH Raja Nazrin and other dignitaries had a closer look at the school facilities and classrooms, and took the opportunity to interact with students.
The five Tenby Schools across Malaysia have a combined enrolment of 4300 students from 60 countries and employ over 500 teachers. The school’s vision, “A United World at Peace Through Education” is therefore most appropriate considering its composition and makeup.
