It is important for a child’s holistic development to experience leadership opportunities during their formative years in school.
Making the transition from childhood to adulthood is a challenging process. Students must learn the art of building relationships, communicating effectively and embracing teamwork to help them excel in school and, subsequently, their careers. This is where honing leadership skills is crucial.
At Tenby Schools Penang, students are encouraged to step up a notch and take on the leadership mantle. We provide them with the opportunity to become student leaders and cultivate the art of influencing and leading others. We believe the impact that they will have on the wider school community will stand them in good stead in their future
Our students are encouraged to take on leadership positions such as:
- Head Boy and Head Girl
- Sixth Form Leaders
- Head of Student Council (and Student Council members)
- Eco Warriors
- House Captains
Student Leadership Council
The Tenby Schools Penang Student Leadership Council is a student-led and student-run body that meets every week and which organises fund-raisers, campaigns and other events around school. It also raises issues that are important to the student body and makes suggestions for changes around the school. It meets regularly with the Principal to discuss its proposals and issues raised. There are also positions of responsibility within the council. These positions of responsibility are filled by students who are selected by the school’s Senior Leadership Team.
The STUCO is an excellent way of developing leadership and interpersonal skills. Members can have a real influence on the way school is run and the opportunities provided to students in the school. They can also play a pivotal role in developing school policy.

We had over 600 people attend the event which took place in our Tenby Penang campus, with our students, teachers and parents dressing up in their spookiest costumes for the occasion. All ticket sales will be donated to UNICEF Malaysia to support underprivileged children.
We made fundraising awesome! All participants dressed in our bright white t-shirts before our first ever Tenby Charity Colour Run got underway…the t-shirts did not stay white for long!
