Attached are the 3rd Newsletter and Sponsor a Kid Program prepared by Mr. Kim Dreyer on behalf of the PSPST (Power Sport Parent Support Team).
A few weeks ago, when I went to sign in at the office, Mr. Lee Tiong Hui, Tenby CCA/Sport Officer, let me in some info which was a real encouragement to us. He told me that parents were very happy with the way we were handling the class and he praised us for doing a good job. I could swear I blushed that very moment (I always feel awkward especially with unexpected compliments) and was overjoyed at the same time.
The Tenby International Schools taekwondo club started off with a humble beginning of about 30 members in April 2009, the majority of whom were from the primary school. Initially, the primary and the secondary students were training together in the school auditorium.
Each semester the club saw a steady increase in membership, and was one of the CCA activities that was pulling in the crowd, according to Mr. Lee. Our membership grew from 30 to 50, then from 50 to 70. He came one day during one of our training sessions to observe and also to find out for himself what was so interesting in our training that was drawing the students in.
This semester, anticipating a good response, we decided to have separate training day for the primary and secondary. The training time for the primary remains on Thursday, while the secondary is on Friday. However, the students are still given the options to select any of the training day most convenient to them.

Taman Megah night class was initially started for those students who were formerly training in the Taman Megah school. When they moved up to form 1, they stayed back as they still wish to continue their training under us. That was more than 15 years ago. Now, it comprises ex-students from as far as SK Assunta, SMK Bandar Damansara Utama 3, P.J. and other colleges nearby as well.
The class starts at 7.45 pm sharp every Tuesday, and usually by 7.15 pm we would already be there teaching and guiding those who come early. The form 1 students would come straight after school (they will only take their dinner after the lesson). To see them coming faithfully, week after week, despite the long and hard day at school, really gives us the motivation to give them our best.
This is an unique class. It is unique in the sense that unlike other classes, here, the students who had left for further studies overseas would come back to train when they are back for holidays. Some would even come and assist us to teach. One such person, is Kenneth Kuan (graduated several months ago as a medical doctor). Oophs…, I should address him as Dr. Kenneth Kuan, now, as he is currently serving and attached with the Sg. Buloh General Hospital.

For the first time this semester the secondary boys and girls from the Tenby International Schools commenced their training without the primary students. Before this and for the past 3 years, both the secondary and primary were training together in the school auditorium. It was until recently, when the group got a little too big, and we have more secondary students that could come on Friday, that we decided to split up the group.
