THE WORLD SCHOLARS CUP 2017: JAKARTA ROUND

THE WORLD SCHOLARS CUP 2017: JAKARTA ROUND

29 Gold Medals and 69 Silver Medals

Congratulations to our thirty-three (33) students who participated in the recently concluded World Scholar’s Cup: Jakarta Round. The competition which was held last 6-7 May 2017 in Jakarta Intercultural School and was participated by almost 600 students from 25 schools around Jakarta.

The World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) is an international academic tournament held in different countries around the world. With this year’s theme, “An Unlikely World”, participants of the WSC compete in four categories: Team Debate (main event), Collaborative Writing, Scholar’s Bowl and Scholar’s Challenge. Successful teams have a chance to go to the Global Round, and possibly to the Tournament of Champions at Yale University.

SWA trained and sent eleven (11) teams for this year’s WSC. The senior team is comprised of Grade 9 students. The junior team, on the other hand, includes students from Grade 4 to 9.

Our team won a total of 29 gold medals and 69 silver medals across the junior and senior divisions. During the Debate Showcase, Eunike was chosen to be part of the judges’ panel. Our senior team also managed to be in the Top 11 for Team Debate. We have 10 debate champions including Eriq (5th place); 9 writing champions including Kirana (9th place); and 1 collaborative writing trophy (4th place) from Kelly, Vijjasena and Tristan.

We send our warmest congratulations to all thirteen SWA MSHS student participants who travelled to Singapore this week to take part in the 39th International C.B. Paul Science Quiz 2017hosted by the Anglo-Chinese Junior College’s Science and Mathematics Council (ACJC SMC) and in collaboration with the College of Science, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Faculty of Science, National University of Singapore (NUS). The event was an international competition that students spent months preparing for, both after school and at home. The event was open to students in Grades 7 & 8 (Category 1) and Grade 9 & 10 (Category 2). Participants were judged based on GCE “O” Level, IBDP and some university-level of understanding of Science and Mathematics topics.

Topics included but may not be limited to

Physics
(Category 1 & 2)
mechanics, thermal physics, waves, electricity, magnetism, and nuclear & quantum physics
Biology
(Category 1 & 2)
cell structure, biological molecules, physiological processes in plants and humans, and DNA and genomics
Chemistry
(Category 1 & 2)
atomic structure, stoichiometry, electrolysis, reaction kinetics, thermodynamics, acid-base reactions and organic chemistry

The student participants should be very proud of their accomplishments in this event as it was not only challenging in requiring a great deal of training and learning outside of the classroom but also unique to other academic challenges that they have faced in the past. As teachers, we are exceptionally pleased with the results and very proud of all participants who demonstrated courage, commitment and willingness to go above and beyond what is expected of them in the classroom. Some of the most important learning takes place in these types of competitions and helps students to discover that they do have the ability to overcome large challenges and allows them to develop this ability in a practical setting. Family, friends and teachers please take a moment to congratulate them and recognise their achievements in this highly competitive international competition.
