Tenby International’s Newsletter 53 – 4 March 2016
After staying off from competitive training for several months due to a knee injury, Bronson Cheah Jun Peng returned and took part in last weekend’s Semenyih Open Cup Taekwondo Championship 2016 with a bang. He won the gold medal effortlessly after beating 4 other opponents. Motivated by his earlier achievement, his younger sibling, Nicole Cheah Ji Ki joined in the competition for the first time and managed to secure a silver herself.

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.
The primary remains training on Thursday, and the secondary on Friday. However, they are still given the option to attend either one, most convenient to them.

Schools Opening Ceremony
A Memorable Day
The 3rd of June 2009 was a memorable day for Tenby Schools Setia Eco Park, and especially so for the school’s taekwondo club. It marked the day of the school’s opening ceremony and the club’s inaugural taekwondo demonstration.
The taekwondo members of the school were notably excited by the request. After all, they had just started learning the martial art since the club was formed several months ago and this was the first time they were presented with the opportunity to display the skills they have learned so far, in front of the Crown Prince of Perak, HRH Raja Dr Nazrin Shah. They were ever more so enthusiastic to hone their skills and diligent in getting the moves right. Their instructor, Madam Yeap Swee Bee spent weeks guiding the children.
Efforts Paid Off
And their effort finally paid off. The club and members received lauds and praises after their maiden performance.The Tenby International School’s Director of Education, Mr Robert Lloyd was very impressed with the demonstration that he personally went up to Madam Yeap to compliment them on a fantastic performance.
