News from the Executive Principal’s Desk

Dear Parents, Teachers and Staff,

This week the Grade 12’s begin their mock examinations which are the dress rehearsal for their final International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) examinations. The IBDP is a demanding yet rewarding programme which challenges students in a unique way. It demands high academic standards over a wide range of subjects. Students cannot sidestep less preferred areas and must also demonstrate a commitment to service and the capacity to produce university level essays. The information in these examinations will be invaluable for students as they prepare for their final push towards the March/April examination period. We wish them all the very best of luck. Similarly early and mid-March mark the summative assessments for the PYP and MYP with the PYP Exhibition and the MYP Personal Project.

This week we completed our scholarship selections for students from 2022/2023 through to 2024/2025. Congratulations to those who have been awarded scholarships and thank you to everyone who participated in what is a very challenging selection process. During this time, we also interview current scholarship holders to discuss their progress. The calibre and attitude of these students is simply amazing.

It has been wonderful to see extra activities continuing despite the interruptions around us. Congratulations to our High School students who participated in the International Applied Science Olympiad (IASO) last month:

  1. Michael Ciputra – Gold Medal
  2. Anastasia Lilananda – Silver Medal

Have a great week!
