Phnom Penh Explorers

Quiz 1: What is the most valuable asset of MHOLC?
Answer: The Team of Teachers and staff!

Quiz 2: How to show our appreciation towards their invaluable contribution?
Answer: Send them for a trip (and we stay behind…).

There they went. Between 27 and 30 August, over the long weekend of Nuzul Al-Quran and Merdeka Day, armed with nothing but their boldness, 9 explorers of MHOLC stormed Phnom Penh City, Kingdom of Cambodia.

What happened within that 4 days 3 nights remain mysterious, probably forever. As long as no police report was lodged, and they came back excited and pleased, we are happy.

Good on you, girls!

Disney @MHOLC

Every year, Play House Disney Malaysia will send crews to MHOLC to conduct a 1.5 hour session with all students. While promoting its image, the session presented by Disney’s professional crews is also highly educational and interesting, instilling good knowledge and great fun within the students.

This year the session was held on Monday, 23rd August and the theme was Mickey Mousekersize. Children enjoyed the interactive story-telling, participated actively along the storyline and the quiz after. On top of prizes given to the winners during the quiz, all students receive souvenirs such as Mickey hat, writing pads, etc. Thank you, Micky and Winnie!


A Scientific Trip

On 18th August, MHOLC went on the 2nd Field Trip this year, to National Science Centre (NSC) located at Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur.

As a public institute aiming at promoting general scientific knowledge and interest, NSC has recently been through some major upgrading and has made the centre more attractive to young children.

Under the guidance of teachers, MHOLC students enjoyed viewing the amazing scientific phenomena displaced, placing their hands on various experimental apparatus, and more importantly, enhancing their interest in general science which shall last a lifetime..

MHOLC's expansion

Thanks to the strong support from parents, and the great effort injected by teachers and staff, MHOLC has recorded a significant 53% year-on-year growth in enrolment this year.

The fortunate coincidence was that the immediate neighboring house to our school was available for rent and we were just in time to seal the agreement.

By acquiring this unit, MHOLC is now occupying 4 double-storey link houses in a stretch, offering 12 fully equipped Montessori classrooms, a daycare centre, a multi-functional playground containing a sand pit, and a shaded/tiled water play pool.Our team of teachers has also expanded, to the size of 16, thus maintaining the teacher-student ratio below 1:10, as a commitment to optimize learning quality.
