PRIVATE SECONDARY

From the Desk of the Head of Secondary

Welcome back to Sekolah Sri Bestari Private School (Secondary) for the Academic Year 2019. We extend a warm welcome to new students, teachers and parents into our big family in SBPS. To old students, teachers and parents, a big hug to you for our loyalty and love for the school.

A year has passed with many memorable events and programmes and another year is coming yet to be engraved with more memorable events and programmes. We will continue to offer old and new programmes to allow all students to pick and choose what suits them well and better according to their interests and abilities.

School is about gearing students up for the aspirations that they have and also to prepare them to meet challenges in life. In other words, school must help students to see possibilities in themselves, dream dreams and break barriers. The journey must be enriching and engaging and that need everyone’s cooperation and commitment. Over the years we have witnessed Bestarians excel in so many fields such as in performing Arts, Voluntary work, exchange programmes, sports etc. These have helped them to boost their confident level and helped to becoming an asset to the country.

In AY2019, under the academic planning and strategies, emphasis and focus will be geared towards the Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE), Singapore Maths, Cambridge certifications and upgrading the two national exams namely PT3 and SPM. On the other hand, equal treatment will also be given to non-academic fields as “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!

I am privileged to have the opportunity to lead and walk alongside our highly committed, dedicated and professional staff and wonderful partners. As a team, we strive to provide the all rounded education to all students under our care. 2019 will be an important milestone in SBPS’s history as we come a ear close to celebrate our 25th Anniversary in ear 2020. I personally hope this is a year filled with good things in it.

My teachers and I look forward to working together with parents and the community to co-create the future of SBS and to chart its next phase of growth. We will work extra hard this year to meet all the aspirations and dreams for our beloved school and students.

My humble request for everyone to be patient and tolerant with the inconvenience of the school surrounding due to the massive construction activities. All are made to provide more facilities and conducive environment to teaching & learning will be more meaningful.

“ONCE A BESTARIAN, ALWAYS A BESTARIAN”

Yours sincerely,

Rosnah Sulaiman
Head of the Secondary School, SBPS
