For the third year, the Alice Smith School is proud to award three deserving post-SPM Malaysian students full scholarships enabling them to pursue their A Level studies.The scholarships commenced in January 2013 and will run until July 2014. The full scholarship will cover tuition fees, building levy and enrollmentfee including all textbooks and materials, external examination fees and curriculum-based trips.
Scholar Quah Paik Suan, who was a Head Prefect of SMK Damansara Jaya said, “I am extremely grateful for this scholarship. It will be a completely different experience and I look forward to experiencing an international education here in Malaysia.” An accomplished violinist, Andrew Ng was thrilled to know that Alice Smith offers Music as a subject choice at A Level. “Personally, I believe that Alice Smith will take me further in my search for self-enrichment, offering invaluable exposure and broadening my perspectives as well as helping me in achieving my goal as a musician,” Andrew shared.
An active member of a community bagpipe band, Angertdev Singh looks forward to furthering his studies at Cambridge or the London School of Economics. “This scholarship will be a stepping stone for my experience. I believe that the school will offer the best of British education, providing the right exposure for me,” he said.
Equally proud and excited are Angertdev’s parents. “We are really overwhelmed by the warm welcome from everyone, especially the teaching staff. They seem really passionate and take a genuine interest; a real positive synergy between teachers and students.”
Valerie Thomas-Peter, the Director of School, noted, “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 the scholars to learn in a truly diverse and dynamic community, as our students hail from over 45 different nations.”
Roger Schultz, Principal of the Secondary Campus, added, “Our scholars will have an added advantage over others who are studying in standard A Level programmes. The Alice Smith School is one of the first schools in Asia to offer the AQA Baccalaureate in addition to A Levels. The AQA Baccalaureate is an academic qualification which builds on a student’s core A Level subjects, adding value through wider learning and enrichment activities. Students are required to complete 100 hours of enrichment activities in the core areas of work related learning, community participation and personal development activities. This will enable the scholars to be well prepared in gaining entry to top-notch universities worldwide.”
