KUCHING: Help Education Services Sdn Bhd (HELP) assures all that the Tunku Putra School at Jalan Stadium in Petra Jaya near here will only get better under a new management.

According to newly-appointed Tunku Putra Executive Committee chairman Dr Goh Chee Leong, the group will assist the school in all aspects, including bringing in more qualified teachers and introducing an exciting learning programme to the students.

Speaking to reporters yesterday, he said it is HELP’s belief that learning at school should be enjoyable, where the students should also be given the chance to discover what they are really good at or their key interests while they are there.

He pointed out that they should not suffer – being forced to study – just to obtain quality education.

“Some say it is impossible to merge enjoyable education with quality education. We here at HELP believe that we can; we have proven it,” he said, adding that HELP is now on a mission to take Tunku Putra School to another level as requested by the school-owners.

Goh also shared with the reporters HELP’s academic success at its Kuala Lumpur campus, its strength in talent management and teacher’s development, as well as its philosophy and passion in leading the education charter.

“These are all strong attributes that are absolutely transferable to Tunku Putra School as it embarks on its latest chapter in transformational and holistic learning,” he said.

Members of the public, especially the parents, who wish to know more about Tunku Putra School are invited to its ‘Open Day’ at the school premises here this Nov 25, running from 10am to 3pm.

The visitors that day will have the opportunity to tour the campus here, meet the teachers and listen to a presentation from Goh himself.

This year marks a significant milestone for Tunku Putra School, owned by Cahya Mata Sarawak Bhd (CMS), as it embarks on its next journey in educational growth through the signing of a management agreement with HELP.

HELP has been successful in running the Help University, which has over 9,000 students. It provides a plethora of study disciplines and manages two international schools – each in Kuala Lumpur and Johor – which together, have over 2,000 students

With over 30 years of experience, HELP has produced top students who have secured scholarships to study at top universities around the world including Cambridge, Harvard, MIT, LSE, Imperial College and Australian National University.
