11 Students receive Principal’s Award

Eleven students from different programmes at SEGi College Sarawak were recognised for their academic excellence during the Principal’s Award 2011 Ceremony held in the campus on 1 December 2011.

They were Wee Wee Binti Buyong (Diploma in Nursing), Tracy Lim Li Mei (Dip. in Mass Communication), Maybelline Chew (Dip. in Tourism Management), Susana Chew Hui (Dip. in Tourism Management), Gradys Lee Sin Jung (Dip. in Tourism Management), Chai Poh Zhuang (Dip. in Accounting), Tan Chun Ping (Dip. in Accounting), Joanne Lo Fui Senn (Dip. in Early Childhood Education), Kuan Siaw Fung (Dip. in Early Childhood Education), Sally Sim Boon San (Dip. in Early Childhood Education) and Chew Ai Ping (Foundation in Commerce).

The Principal’s Award is awarded to students from any academic programme offered at SEGi College Sarawak and is based solely on students’ academic achievement each semester. Eligible recipients must obtain GPA’s of 4.0 or two to four distinctions depending on the length of the semester.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the recipients of the Principal’s Award, and to let them know that they have proven to the College and to themselves that they are among the top 5 percent of students studying here,” said Madam Stella Lau, SEGi College Sarawak Principal.

“We believe that by taking the time to present performance awards to our students we can increase their motivation exponentially. This will give them reason to excel, and will also create a more positive environment in their classroom,” said Madam Stella.

The College acknowledges that learning is best done in a positive environment. The awards and recognition are among the approaches used to create a good environment and inspire students to excel in their educational progress.

This is proven by one of the recipients, Tan Chun Ping from Diploma in Accounting, who has received the academic excellence award twice. “This award definitely empowers me to do my best in my studies and it makes me feel appreciated when my efforts are recognised by the college. I would like to convey my gratitude to all the lecturers who have helped me. It is their support that enables me to excel in my studies and receive this award twice,” said Tan.
