Education is vital not only for our children’s future but also for the general betterment of the community.
Last December 2019, Ipohites got a glimpse of the newly-launched Seri Botani International School (SBIS) during its open day.
The school opened its doors to the public on January 1. It offers the Cambridge Primary and Secondary curriculum that prepares students for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). Seri Botani International School is under the management of the Taiko Group of companies.
Its primary objective is to equip students with a balance of hands-on activities and theories through the provision of an all-inclusive approach. Students are in good hands, where their development will be guided throughout their entire academic year. At the same time, the school creates an interactive environment that allows more engagement in the learning process.
According to Lee Tat Choy, the commercial manager of Taiko Group, modern learning is crucial in preparing the students for future education and career path by strengthening their learning skills.
“The school would like to stress on six core values namely, creative and innovation, fun learning, receptivity to changes, mutual respect, potential and talent development and discipline,” said Lee to reporters.
Despite the utilisation of English, the Chinese language will be taught to prepare students for the Chinese Proficiency Test (Hanyu Shui Ping Kao Shi).
Various facilities are available like science laboratories, ICT laboratories, cafeteria, language laboratories, medical bay, spacious classrooms, library with digital and leisure sections where students can relax and discuss, music and dance studio as well as art room to broaden their learning capacity.
Early bird enrolment will enjoy RM2500 registration fee waiver. Students will get a 30 per cent discount off for term fee in the first year. Also, there will be no increment in the term fee for three academic years until January 2022. The school is accepting students from Early Years, Year 1 to Year 9.
