For the fourth year running, the Alice Smith School recently awarded three full scholarships to bright and deserving post SPM Malaysian students enabling them to pursue their A Level studies. The full scholarship will cover tuition fees, building levy and enrolment fee including all textbooks and materials, external examination fees, and curriculum-based trips.

The scholarships were presented by Director of School, Mrs Valerie Thomas-Peter and Vice Chair of the Council of Governors, Mr Sharyn Azmi, witnessed by families of the scholars and school leadership. The scholarship recipients were identified through a stringent selection process. Apart from academic merit, Alice Smith also takes into account the candidates’ extra-curricular excellence and interview assessments.

Scholar Andrea Chew loves being with people, interacting, sharing, connecting, and helping others. She would like to pursue Psychology at university. A bubbly personality, Andrea said, “I am extremely grateful for this scholarship and the opportunity to study here. It will be a completely different experience. The diverse environment and cultures will enrich me further, an exposure which will be a good springboard and pathway in preparation for my University life.”

Wong Leh Theng was thrilled to know that Alice Smith offers Art and Design as a subject choice at A Levels. Leh Theng who describes herself as an artist who dreams to travel the world said, “I really like the enrichment programme offered at Alice Smith as it provides a wide range of activities which includes all aspects of life.” Leh Theng has participated in many art competitions both locally and abroad.

An active member and President of the Science Club in his school, Tee Chen Giap dreams to study medicine, however, the fees are usually extremely high. As an Alice Smith scholar, he’s most excited on the scholarship offered and looks forward to embrace this great leap forward making it one step closer to his dream career as a Medical Practitioner.

“This scholarship will be a stepping stone for my experience. I believe that the school will provide the exposure and set a new path for me,” he said. Equally proud and excited is Chen Giap’s mother who is most grateful to the school for the great opportunity and hopes that her son continues to expand his ability and interests.

Valerie Thomas-Peter, the Director of School, noted, “As a not-forprofit educational foundation, we are pleased that our resources are benefitting deserving Malaysian students.” To date, the Alice Smith School has invested in fourteen young Malaysians to help them realise their full academic potential.
