Wizard of Oz Rehearsal

Dance rehearsals for the upcoming musical, choreographed by Jaslyn Chia of Year 12 and POWIIS alumna Charity Yong.  

Key Stage 3 Game Based Learning

Key Stage 3 students at POWIIS have been enjoying playing Scrabble and other vocabulary games in their English lessons this term. This old time British family favourite board game has gone down a hit with the students and many have enjoyed playing together to try and beat the other teams. Students are able to expand their vocabulary and revise spelling whilst playing in a fun friendly manner.  

MSSPP Archery Competition

Ryan Lee’s skills were certainly put to the test in a recent MSSPP Archery Competition. The Year 8 student did a remarkable job, winning first place under the individual category and first runner up in the under-14s World Archery category. He was awarded with trophies and certificates during this week’s assembly, and we wish him the best in future competitions. Well done, Ryan!  

Boarders’ Weekend Activity

Over the weekend, the boarders visited Penangpac to see ‘Short & Sweet’ and had a fantastic time. Touted as the ‘biggest platform for 10-minutes of creativity’, the festival showcased 7 original dance works and 8 original short plays over 11 days. It was an enjoyable Saturday night at the theatre, and we look forward to more!  

Penang Junior Close Golf Tournament

Recently, Soraya Ng came in third at the Penang Junior Close Golf Tournament, which was held at Penang Golf Resort. She participated in the Under 18 category, and made both Penang and POWIIS proud with her achievements. She will go on to represent the state in the national level competition, and we wish her all the best. Congratulations!
