As one of the premier colleges in the Northern region, SCI is an approved learning partner of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Global where one of their students, Wong Susan, was awarded the World Prize Winner with the highest scores in Certified Accounting Technicians (CAT) for the December 2014 examination paper. The award was presented by the principal of SCI, Puan Adawiah Norli, who couldn’t be more proud of her students’ achievements.
“In SCI, we are using different methods to teach the students. Not only do we want our students to graduate with flying colours but we also want to shape them into all-rounded students with great personalities. However, with CAT and ACCA, since the syllabus are directly monitored and given to us, all our lecturers have given their best to cater to the needs of our students. Wong Susan has set a great example and I hope the rest will follow soon,” said the energetic and dedicated principal.
One of the scholarship receivers, Cassandra Nichole Monteiro admitted that she enjoyed learning in SCI where she gained new knowledge and also a new family.
