Eight outstanding students were recently awarded the prestigious Alice Smith School scholarships to pursue their A Level studies from January 2020.
The presentation ceremony was held at the Secondary Campus, with Marama Schnitker and Campbell Tupling, Chair and Vice-Chair of the Council of Governors awarding the students.
Scholar James Matthews George who has great passion for the Sciences shared, “Having the opportunity to be an A Level student focusing purely on subjects like Biology and Chemistry presents me with the chance of fully dedicating myself for the subjects I love. Alice Smith has fantastic facilities and great teachers and I’m able to embrace my passion with likeminded people and express freely my love for Science.”
Said Ilangko, Pavithran’s father, “This opportunity will be fantastic exposure for my son in acquiring knowledge, skills and good values. I hope he will do well, and with the help and support from the school, will be able to obtain another scholarship at degree level.”
“Choosing the right school isn’t supposed to be easy but what Alice Smith provides as a school and a community is more than ideal for me to make a decision to where I want my A Level education to be spent. What attracts me are the vast array of subjects that are offered. I have great interest in the field of psychology and definitely have it in mind for A Levels. The school’s extra-curricular and sports facilities are another major factor. As a keen sailor and rugby player, I look forward to having better facilities and support to develop skills in a rugby team. Alice Smith would also give me the exposure to try new sports and activities that I would not have been able to partake in before,” shared scholar Adri Whittingham.
Alice Smith scholars will not only receive financial assistance to pursue their studies, but also be fully supported by the Higher Education provision for university application and beyond which is a core part of our Sixth Form package.
The school looks at student’s academic ability, professional objectives, extracurricular interests and personality traits to help guide them to the right university.
To date, the full and partial scholarships have benefited close to 50 Malaysian students from various backgrounds.
As a not-for-profit educational foundation, we are pleased that our resources are benefitting deserving Malaysian students. This award also provides the opportunity for scholars to learn in a truly caring, diverse and dynamic community.
Congratulations and a warm welcome to our new Scholars!
