Inauguration of the Yangon American International School

 

Myanmar Strategic Holdings (LSE: SHWE), an independent developer and manager of consumer businesses located in Myanmar, is pleased to announce that the inauguration of the Yangon American International School ("Yangon American"), the Company's first international school, took place on Wednesday, 23 October 2019.

 

The Honourable Ambassador of the United States of America to Myanmar, H.E. Scot Marciel, presided over the event, which included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and the unveiling of a ceremonial plaque.

 

Yangon American, a top-tier international school situated in Yangon, welcomed its first 60 students in August 2019. Classes are currently in session and open for enrolment for Nursery (age 2-3) through to Grade 3 (age 8-9). For the next academic year, beginning in August 2020, Grade 4 (age 9-10) will be added. Yangon American is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12.

 

Commenting on the inauguration of the school, the Honorable Ambassador of the United States of America to Myanmar, H.E. Scot Marciel, said: "I am delighted to have been a part of the inauguration of the Yangon American International School. Equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and methodology, the school offers high-quality, American-div educational opportunities to students in Yangon.  Internationally-focused schools like this one prepare students in Myanmar to be leaders of the future."

 

Commenting, Enrico Cesenni, Chief Executive Officer of Myanmar Strategic Holdings, said: "Yangon American's mission is to provide each student an exemplary 21st century American education with an international perspective, to shape global citizens. It is therefore a great privilege to be able to welcome The Honourable Ambassador of the United States of America to Myanmar, H.E. Scot Marciel, to officially open the school.

 

"The school is already home to more than 17 nationalities, making up over 70% of the student body. This reflects both the Company's and the Myanmar government's attitude that Myanmar is very much open for international investment. We are pleased that Yangon American can lead the way as a responsible investor in the Myanmar education sector."

Through the franchise, MSH also partnered with the Directorate of Company Administration in Myanmar to provide English language courses to its civil servants.   

The Company also operates a joint venture with Auston Institute of Management to develop and operate the Auston College Myanmar. The private school opened in May 2018 offering diplomas in Engineering Technology, Construction Project Management and Networking, Information Systems, and Security.
