More than 100 delegates from over 60 Cambridge schools welcomed our Chief Executive, Michael O’Sullivan at the Cambridge Schools Forum Malaysia on 29 July 2015.
In a keynote speech, Michael reinforced Cambridge’s commitment to preparing students for the future and helping them to reach their potential. He discussed the distinguishing features of a Cambridge education, which helps students to achieve their potential and compete successfully in their home countries and on a global stage. In particular, Michael talked about the ‘learner centric’ and ‘challenging’ Cambridge curriculum. He also underlined the how the development of ‘higher order thinking skills’ is integrated into every syllabus.
Michael finished his speech with a heartfelt statement about Cambridge and its future intentions in Malaysia, he said: “We are privileged to play such an important role in the lives of young people in Malaysia. Our curricula will help your students, if they study hard, to enter the best universities at home, in Australia, the UK, the USA, and elsewhere. But our ambition is greater than that: it is, to put it simply, to prepare your students for life – giving them a love of learning, an informed curiosity and the skills and knowledge they need to tackle the demands of tomorrow’s world, helping them to become active citizens capable of shaping a better world in the future.”
