Student Leadership

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 endeavours.  

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)
  • Prefects
  • Eco Warriors
  • House Captains
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. Events organised and led by the Student Leadership Council include:

Halloween Fundraiser

Over 600 people attend this annual event which is organised and run by the Student Leadership Council. Students, teachers and parents join in the fun and ticket sales are donated to UNICEF Malaysia to support underprivileged children.

The Charity Colour Run

Led by the Sports Council, with support from Events and Charity Councils, The Charity Colour Run takes place on the school campus and is a very popular event on the annual school calendar.

The Spring Fair

Students on the Student Leadership Council are responsible for running a stall during our annual Spring Fair which is organised by our Parent Association. This is a fun day of games and events and is a wonderful opportunity to bring the school community together.
