Tunku Putra School Opens Tun Taib Hall

Kuching, Sarawak, 11 May 2015 – Since its establishment in 2010, Tunku Putra School has established itself as one of Sarawak’s leading Kindergarten to Secondary education providers. Tunku Putra School prides itself on its state-of-the-art facilities that enhance already diverse curricular and extra-curricular offerings, which are set to be even further enriched and developed when the new Tun Taib Hall opens its doors to host a plethora of sporting and other events.

Named in honour of His Excellency the Governor of Sarawak, Tun Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib bin Mahmud, this in-door sports hall include facilities for games like futsal, basketball, netball, handball and volleyball, as well as space for a drama and dance studio and for martial arts and the like.

The Tun Taib Hall built at a cost of over RM6 million strengthens the School’s capacity to provide students with more opportunities to develop their talents and skills, thus strengthening the School’s holistic approach to student learning by also incorporating a wide range of extra-curricular activities. It will also serve to increase the competitiveness of the School’s sports teams and individual athletes to achieve both personal success and recognition at inter-school, state and national level.

At the event was the Principal of Tunku Putra School, Ms Susan Holmes, who commented: “At Tunku Putra School educating the whole child and providing each student with the maximum opportunity to achieve his/her potential in all areas of academic, social, emotional, moral, spiritual and physical development is our key focus. We seek to continuously improve the all-round educational experience that we offer and we are proud to have this state of the art Tun Taib Hall to reinforce our position as one of Sarawak’s leading private schools. The joy and excitement on our students’ faces when they started using these impressive new facilities has already more than justified our decision to build this Hall.”
