“Despite the pressure from their challenging DP courses, I'm so delighted to see how far they have advanced. Some of the G11 students hadn't learned many of the necessary topics, so they taught themselves the content and solved all of the questions. Their hard work has more than paid off, as evidenced by the rewards they received.” - stated Ms. Marie, IGCSE Coordinator / Head of Mathematics department"

Congratulations to Alisa, Kevin, and Ayden for winning 1st place in the World Robot Olympiad (WRO) 2020 Finals, Junior Category, in Montreal, Canada, becoming the first Indonesian Team to receive such an award.

With this year's theme being Climate Squad, SWA RoboKnights has chosen the topic of “manufacturing locally to avoid transportation,” which focuses on allowing work to be carried out remotely, such that travel is unnecessary in order to avoid greenhouse gas emissions.

Through their participation and the significant distinctions they have gained in the field of educational robotics, these students are demonstrating the country's potential in the field of STEM, and the evolution that has taken place in recent years. We are proud to be one of the first schools to invest in STEM, and develop young people’s digital skills.

Distinguished Honorable Mention Award in the 2020 Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Contest Music Category

Congratulations to Gabriel, Ashley, Jordan, Matthew, and Aidan for winning the Distinguished Honorable Mention Award in the 2020 Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Contest Music Category!

The group beautifully composed a song about the ocean titled "Hidden Life" to increase awareness about coral bleaching and marine life. Their impressive submission stood out from the more than 5,300 entries from around the world.

The Group's Reflection:

"Our group’s performance goal and purpose was to raise awareness of a very important subject. The subject we chose to focus on was coral bleaching and marine life. We wanted to raise awareness of the fact that coral reefs are being destroyed all over the world, and how marine life is affected by it. We also wanted to express how we can still have hope and work together to save the corals. According to the National Ocean Service, when corals are stressed by changes in conditions, such as temperature, light, or nutrients, they expel the symbiotic algae living in their tissues, causing them to turn completely white. We used this in our lyrics because we thought this fact was very interesting and that it could symbolise lifelessness and dullness.

Through this song, we wanted to express the fact that if we have hope. There is still a chance that we can restore the coral reefs and keep the marine life safe. We described the ocean as a lively and beautiful place that is full of mystery. However, that changed when humans started polluting the ocean and when the climate started to become hotter. We used slow pop music. It has some qualities of pop music, in that the song is easy to remember and has a catchy rhythm. We wanted to express that even though something feels impossible and irreversible, it can still be solved with determination and collaboration."
