Public school expands to Malaysia
One of the country's top public schools is to develop a new school in Malaysia.
Marlborough College in Wiltshire is to set up the coeducational boarding school in Iskandar Malaysia, a new city being built in the state of Johor. Marlborough College Malaysia is to have 423 children in its prep school and 915 pupils in its senior school.
Nicholas Sampson, Marlborough's master, said: "The new school will be based on the British model, but it will have a very international feel to it."
The school should be open by 2012 in Iskandar Malaysia, which is being developed in the south of Malay peninsula. Marlborough College expects the new establishment to open by 2012.
The project is a joint venture between Marlborough and Malaysian governmental agencies (emphasis mine). Mr Sampson, whose job title is master rather than headmaster, added: "It's a great spot.
"Malaysia has got a tremendous history of being a cultural crossroads.
"This is a statement of intent about our place in the world. We want to be able to speak to the world."
Marlborough was founded in 1843. It charges annual fees of £28,245 for boarding pupils.
Ok. If you DemiNegara "champions of education" were not too lazy to read the few words above about education issues in the world, I'd like to ask you a few questions:
To TamDalyell (who had some jaguh Kg DemiNegara spewing some nonsense here then quickly run back to jump around excitedly at his blog like little children) who attacked me saying:
"Bagi mereka punca masaalah ialah British meninggalkan negara dan Melayu mengambil alih. Punca kritikan mereka kepada Ketuanan Melayu berakar umbi dari sini. Dan hala tuju hujjah-hujjah mereka ialah pengekalan kebritishan kerana mereka tahu mereka lebih bersedia dalam meneruskan kesinambungan kebritishan ini. Singapura adalah penjelmaan dari disciplin ini."
Hahaha! Putting aside your nonsense statements for a moment...
You seem to be very "anti-everything-that-even-smells-non-Malay". You also accuse this humble blogger of being anti-Malay and pro-British.
What do you say about the people from the Ketuanan Melayu champion party signing a deal like this?
Meludah ke langit, terkena muka sendiri...
Malas nak explain lagi pada depa.
