Having spent a large fraction of my life in PENABUR, I can safely vouch for its reputation and for its intense yet effective academic environment. Additionally, social get-goings are prevalent and most of my friends strike a balance between work life and social life

PENABUR Secondary to me is a lot more than just academic excellence. it implements Christian based values, which has cultivated my character and has guided me in making wise decisions in life. Not only that, I can recall how helpful the faculties were and how genuinely caring they were to my progress as an individual. The teachers were very supportive of my career goals and believed in me even when I doubt myself. Everything that I received during my time in PENABUR played a tremendous role in shaping the person I am today. It resembles a seed that has been planted within me and will forever grow

Studying at PENABUR is the most interesting and memorable time in my life. In both academic and non academic activities, it was a fascinating experience. Through interactive teaching-learning and daily life activities, PENABUR enables students to be admitted in many renowned universities around the world

A group of 22 teachers from two campuses (Tanjung Duren and Kelapa Gading) had the opportunity to visit three Apple Distinguised Schools in Singapore last February 8-9, 2018. The schools were Nanyang Girls’ High School, Canberra Primary School, and School of Science and Technology. The schools have been using iPads for six (6) years. During the two-day visit, we had the chance to observe classes, mingle with the students and the teachers, and familiarise ourselves with the specifications and advantages of a powerful and versatile gadget that will change the face of education in our school from the next school year – the iPad.
We visited Nanyang Girls’ High School on our first day and in the afternoon we ventured to the Apple Headquarter.On Day 2 was a visit to a government primary school, Canberra Primary School and in the afternoon we stepped it up a notch and visited the government-run school, the School of Science and Technology. Here we were astounded to see students developing their own apps.The school has been using the apps that their students have developed such as apps to take attendance and participation as well as share interactive presentations or information regarding the school. It is obvious that these students have a great love for technology.
The incoming Grade 7 will be required to start using ipad in this academic year. By the time these students reach Grade 12, then the whole school will be utilising this technology. The school believes that the use of iPad in the classroom enables endless learning possibilities. iPad in the classroom brings education to life.
We live in a technological age, where students and teachers should be using modern technology in both teaching and learning. Becoming proficient in the use of technology at a younger age will prepare students for future careers. In order to adequately prepare this generation for their future, the use of technology is vital. Moreover, we will find students more engaged with their schoolwork when using iPads. It will be like carrying a portable computer with them everywhere, allowing them to use so many useful apps in their learning. These apps enhanced learning in reading, writing, research, media production, video instruction and so on.
We, the teachers are excited with the prospect of this technology which will give us even more tools to educate your children. Onward we go into the future! We sincerely look forward to having you on board with us in the direction we are heading.
