Ethan has been at Tunku Putra-Help (TPH) since Kindy 1. He is now in International Primary 5. When we started looking at schools, we decided on TPH as we felt that it provided the environment that we wanted for our son - a balance of academic, sports and extra-curricular activities. We also chose it as it had a good ratio of teacher and student in the classroom. In the 7 years that Ethan has been at TPH, he has grown to be independent, confident, and made many friends, especially the children who have been his classmates since Kindy.
The school’s extra-curricular activities have provided a positive impact on Ethan’s growth as a student there. He was elected by his classmates as Student Counsellor representative for his year (IP2 and IP3), which helped him understand the importance of working with his schoolmates and teachers to succeed academically and socially. He enjoyed being a Student Counsellor. Besides that, Ethan has participated in the school’s swimming competitions and also during the school’s Sports Day. In 2019, Ethan received the Academic Achievement Award for International Primary 3.
The school’s focus on the IPC Personal Values is an important part of learning for TPH students and we feel that this has been played a big part in Ethan’s learning journey at the school as it has helped him to develop in terms of character and attitude. The IPC Personal Values are Adaptable, Collaborator, Communicator, Empathetic, Ethnical, Resilient, Respectful and Thinker. Last year, the students took part in the Personal Value logos designed competition. Ethan was very happy that his logo for personal value Ethical was chosen as one of the winning designs for his year.
Overall, the school has taught Ethan to grow confident and independent not just academically but socially. We look forward to seeing him thrive during his time at TPH.
