Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1, Malacca, Malaysia
Tue, 2 Jun 2015

St George's School saw yet another delegation visit the school on Tuesday, 2nd June 2015. This time there were 11 students and 9 teachers, accompanied by the principal of Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1, Puan Kamariah Binti Mohd Dawam. Also in attendance were the chairman of St. George's School's Board of Governors, Mr. Anthony Liew Vun Chiang. The visitors were welcomed by the principal of St. George's School, Mr. Janidi Jingan, the deputy principal, Mr. NM Mubarak, heads of sections and departments, and other members of the teaching staff.

In his welcome speech, the principal thanked Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1 for choosing to visit St. George's School as part of the school's International Benchmarking Program. Before continuing any further, Mr. Janidi Jingan congratulated Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1 for being awarded the High Performing School status by the Malaysian government in 2013. He then proceeded to highlight the many similarities shared by both schools, particularly its size. Yet, for both schools, numbers quickly grew as excellence was achieved in not just academics, but also in co-curricular activities. Thus, the principal hoped that this visit would give St. George's School the opportunity to inquire more about the success stories of Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1 that St. George's School may learn from the Malaysian school. In her reciprocal speech, Puan Kamariah binti Mohd Dawam, the principal of the visiting school expressed her thanks to St. George's School and also our Ministry of Education for allowing this networking opportunity and hoped to be able to learn more from St. George's School's and how they manage to excel in so many areas. She also noted that she truly likes Brunei and says our country really is a "negara maju" in every sense of the title. Puan Kamariah ended her address stressing her hopes for good communication to continue between both schools after the visit.

The programme was then opened by the reading of the surah al-fatihah. The delegates were then warmly welcomed to St. George's School by way of the welcoming dance performed by a group of secondary girls. They were also treated to a number of performances lined up, which showcased the talents and multiculturalism of St. George's School. In turn, a group of students from Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1 performed a nazam.

Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1 then hosted a Robotics Competition which saw the participation of 16 students from both schools. Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1 specialises in the field of robotics and were happy to teach the students of St.George's School a little bit about the subject.

To end the day, each delegate was awarded a souvenir and a certificate. Both St. George's School and Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 1 were glad to have been able to form ties through this visit.
