Government’s vision to develop Penang as an Education Hub.
The school, which will accommodate up to 1,200 local and international pupils aged 3 to 18, will be operated by Stonyhurst College upon completion in 2019. The school will offer both a British curriculum to prepare students for entry into the best UK and international universities and some Malaysian subjects for
local students.
The Chief Minister of Penang, Mr Lim Guan Eng, witnessed the signing of the key agreements on this landmark collaboration involving the Penang State Government, LAPIS, and Stonyhurst.
Head Teacher of Stonyhurst, Mr John Browne, pictured, said, “Stonyhurst College was founded in 1593 and has a
proud Jesuit heritage and culture. I am honoured and moved to be part of a new chapter in its history, by signing this agreement with Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng. The opening of the Stonyhurst College in Malaysia is an historic milestone for the school and one which I sincerely hope will bene t both the community
of the school and the wider community around it.”
College hosts
Any Questions?
Lancing College, Sussex, hosted BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? in the College Chapel last month (September).
Chairman Jonathan Dimbleby welcomed the audience of over 350 to hear debate between panellists Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott MP; Minister of State for Disabled People, Health and Work Penny Mordaunt MP; columnist and author Charles Moore;
and political commentator and broadcaster Steve Richards.
Guests for Friday’s broadcast gathered from across the local community, including students from Worthing College, Sir Robert Woodard Academy, Steyning Grammar School and Shoreham Academy.
Unsurprisingly, Brexit dominated much of the discussion. The panel, featuring both supporters and opponents of Britain’s exit from the European Union,  ercely debated what the Prime Minister’s speech meant for the future of the country.
As the night progressed, other current issues were addressed, including the verbal dispute between US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un, the Uber licence and the charitable status of independent schools.
Lancing Chapel is open to the public daily and is a regular feature on tours of the Sussex coast. It welcomes over 4,000 people every year.
  140th anniversary celebration
Students from Ashville College’s Prep School, Senior School and Sixth Form in Yorkshire, were the stars of an aerial photograph that saw them forming the number 140, with the iconic clock tower as the backdrop.
Current pupils are being asked to design a 140th Anniversary tie for Old Ashvillians to wear at receptions, lunches and dinners, and for former pupils to share their memories and photos on social media.
Other activities over the coming months include a dinner for former pupils and staff in London, a Christmas drinks reunion and the publishing of
a specially commissioned book featuring “140 Ashvillians”.
