Message from the Art Department `Creativity is
Message from the Principal
Dear Parents,
Friday 12th June, 2015
Thank you for reading this Newsletter.
Early Years Art Exhibition:
The School community will have noticed the delightful fragile
Artwork in the Reception area. Well done Early Years and thank
you to all students for respecting the artwork which in other
establishments could quite easily be damaged because the
display area is a thoroughfare.
Early Years “After School Club”
From September, in harmony with the CCA programme, the
School will offer an After School Club (supervision) until 16:00hrs.
Places will be limited and priority will be given to those children
with siblings in other years in the School. More details to follow
next Term.
Year 5 TIS Camp
All Year 5 left for a 3 day team building camp on Wednesday to Janda Baik, Pahang. Thank you to
the staff for arranging such a worthwhile experience.
World Environment Day: Wednesday 10th June: A tiny seed of love…
In response to an invitation from Dato Khor, from SP Setia (Live,Learn,Work,Pla), and a Tenby
parent, Pn. Lee hosted a wonderful morning for junior SST children who participated in an interactive workshop on the Environment with representatives from SP Setia before going to the Eco
Garden to plant tomato seeds,
When at University the Campus Principal and Mr. Mike Carding had the privilege singing, at
several functions, the College Song: If I could plant one tiny seed of love…
A Kenyan Proverb concluded the morning’s presentation: Treat the earth well. It was not given to
you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children.
Happy Birthday
Earlier this week, pupils and Music Department staff performed, and represented the School with
distinction, at the Reception at The Sky Garden - Avenue K, Kuala Lumpur – hosted by the British
High Commissioner in celebration of the Birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. Special Celebratory
Tenby Artwork from pupils was also on display. Tenby won the “Creativity is Great Art
Competition”. Out of 300 entries from schools all over Malaysia, there were twelve winners, and
Tenby had five of those winning places. Tenby had more entries than any other School, and
copies of the Artwork will be sent to the Queen. There will be a Calendar made of their Artwork, in
support of a Flood Relief charity for families in Kelantan. The Tenby winners are: Kate Cha {3Y}
Raelyn Choi, { 4E}, Ke Yi {4E}Ho Enya {4E} and Luciana Candler {10V}, and they will be invited to
have High Tea with the British High Commissioner, where they will be awarded framed
certificates.
This weekend: Model United Nations Conference at Tenby SEP (KL) 13th & 14th June and
Special Olympics
There are now 145 students coming from 22 different schools and colleges for this Conference.
The Conference Theme is: Crying for Courage, Speaking for the Silenced.

On Saturday afternoon the School also hosts Special Olympics Athletes the Los Angeles World
Games 2015 ‘Send-off’ Ceremony, and football match; the whole event is sponsored by Uniqlo.
Secondary TIS and SST Athletics: Sports Day at the Panasonic Stadium from 08:00hrs on
Tuesday 16th June
Good luck to all Tenby athletes not going to Los Angeles…but to the Panasonic Stadium for the
School’s Sports Day; all support welcome, and thank you the School’s PA for making
arrangements for refreshment throughout the morning.
Lunch-time Piano Recital: Thursday 18th June 12:10hrs to 13:10hrs in The Auditorium

over the USA, performs music by Schubert, and Rachmaninoff. Admission is free and all are

senior students, and acknowledging the work of School staff, and the support of parents.
If I could plant one tiny seed…
Kind regards,
Andrew Auster
Campus Principal
Happy Birthday
TIS PRIMARY
YEAR 4 Sleepover
Armed with a sleeping bag and a bag of clothes, the Year 4s came back to school on Friday the
05.06.2015 for their Year Group Sleepover. With huge smiles on their faces and excitement in
their voices, they kick started the sleepover with the Amazing Race game.
They could be seen running in groups all around the primary block looking for ‘stations’ showing
great team work to complete the tasks and collect the prize tokens. Amidst laughter and cheers,
we all gathered in the canteen for pizza and drinks. As the evening progressed we had movies,
snacks and board games, children had a blast.
A sleepless night couldn’t dampen their sprits. They woke up with cheery smiles, ready to start
Saturday at school. A hearty breakfast and a round of games later, they reluctantly said goodbye
to their friends and teachers.
International Peace Week
Thank you to all the parents who attended the year group meetings this week to discuss the support
needed from parents for our International Peace Week in July. The meetings were very positive,
with loads of creativity. We are confident that with such dedicated parental support, the week should
be a very memorable one for the children.
Media Magic in Year 2
Year 2 began their new IPC topic, Media Magic with a wonderful ‘cinema’ treat to watch Charlie
Chaplin. It was a wonderful experience for the children. They eagerly lined up outside the ‘cinema’
with their tickets, took their seats in an orderly manner and waited for the show to begin. The children
enjoyed the short clip thoroughly and wished they could do it all over again. This mini event was an
Entry Point to the topic where the children will begin to explore communication - a human need.
Communication is about sharing information and experience. It is a basic human need. Whether it
is out of love, fear, anger, hope... our desire to be understood by others is one of the key driving
forces of society. Since the dawn of mankind, we have been using communication for survival (cries
of help, orders, shouts of intimidation, coercion and persuasion), for cooperation and teamwork, and
for expressions of love. As we have become more socially sophisticated, so our methods of
communication have developed – from cave-wall paintings and pictograms, to the written word and
music. We are certain that the children will enjoy their learning experiences during this topic.

World Environment Day Event with S P Setia
Eighty students of Std 2, Std 4 and Std 5 participated in an interesting series of activities on
Wednesday 10th June morning till noon time. They were in for an interactive workshop about water
recycling effort and how one can impart change to improve the environment .This workshop was
conducted by Ms Jagedeswari from Global Environment Centre. Other activities included the
puzzles and quizzes to engage the participants.
At about 11:00hrs, the children wrote their pledge on how they want to make a difference towards
the environment on their Seed Pledge Pack. They were then taken to our 5 Senses Garden to
plant their tomato seeds with the responsibilities and ownership to nurture these plants. Towards
the end after planting the seeds, the children were entertained by two huge Eco mascots in the
gazebo of the Garden. Students were reminded to keep their pledge packs to remind themselves
about their promises to Mother Earth.
Huge thanks to the Management of S P Setia Bhd for the Eco learning points imparted to our
children as well as the “goodies” packs given to the children.

Form 2 Experiential Learning Trip to Janda Baik
(Reported by Abhilashini & Nadia (Form 2M)
On Tuesday 19th May, forty- seven Form 2 students accompanied by teachers visited Janda Baik,
Pahang for their annual experiential learning trip. We departed school at approximately 07:30 hrs
without a single delay. The students followed all the ground rules and behaved well throughout the
trip. After one and a half hour of travelling, we finally reached Janda Baik.
We learned about our magnificent and humungous tropical rainforest and some aspects of
biodiversity. After our lesson, we did some simple fishing. The students used worms and bread for
bait. We had a fun time fishing, although a few of us did not manage to catch a fish. The fish that
we caught were then used for dissection.
A few students who did the dissection were guided by a staff member there. We also had a short
lesson on observing the body parts of a fish. After learning about the fish, we had a mouth-watering
meal which was chicken rice. Most of the boys went for extras.
After the appetising meal, we did some hiking near the rainforest, but we were very unfortunate as
it started to rain and we had to go back. We did manage to do river trekking instead. The big group
found it challenging to walk along the river, as the gushing waters were too strong and the rocks
were too slippery and smooth. But with all the obstacles in our paths, we did it without breaking a
sweat.
Later on, we got to take a nice warm shower at the clean bathrooms there. We had some ‘mamak
mee’ and banana fritters together with some cool and refreshing cups of orange juice. During that
time, a few of the boys went to catch insects around, like butterflies and spiders.
We had to complete a few worksheets given by the event organiser which were brain-splitting
difficult, but with the help of our teachers we managed to finish it. At the end of our trip, we all took
a funny group shot together with the event organisers, teachers and the staff members there. We
packed up and reached school after about 50 minutes. We were all very happy, as we had an
awesome time there and appreciated all that the teachers have gone through for us. We really hope
we have another fun learning trip like this again.

TEACHING YOUR CHILD TO CROSS THE ROAD SAFELY
This article has a simple purpose: to help keep your child safer.
As parents, we have a big part to play in helping our children to learn how to stay safer. Children
will copy adults’ behaviour, so if they see us taking risks they will probably take risks too.
Recently during the morning school drop-offs, I had witnessed a couple of times, children no more
than Y1 or Y2 unaccompanied crossing from the secondary campus to primary dangerously.
They were not using the designated zebra crossing by the swimming pool; rather they were
crossing at the corner turning by the TNB building.
Pic 1. Dangerous Crossing
This area is NOT a designated crossing for anyone.
Again, as mentioned above, children copy adults’ behaviour.
I have seen some parents, teachers and maintenance staffs use this crossing daily, hence
sending the message out to the children that it is ‘safe’ to do so.
This crossing is dangerous because for the following reasons:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
There is no clear view all around
It is on a bend
There are normally parked cars around the area
Cars are constantly moving in this area during peak hours
There are no security guards placed here to ensure their safety when crossing
According to research young children cannot judge how fast vehicles are going or how far away
they are.
Hence to avoid any potential accidents from happening, it is best to teach our children importance
of road safety and by setting good examples ourselves.
The below is the correct zebra crossing for everyone. It is by the swimming pool area.
Pic.2 - Zebra Crossing
The area is clearly painted with yellow stripes to signify that this is a CROSSING.
The school has placed a traffic security guard here daily with a lollipop to ensure that the crossing
is safe.
Pic 3. Traffic security guard with lollipop sign
