Indonesian Robotic Olympiad (2017)

Indonesian Robotic Olympiad (2017)

6th Place

Whizzing around a game table collecting non-white cubes while beaming infrared light, the Baryon Hadron robot collects and transports miniature solar panels and trees — and scores — winning 6th place at this year’s Indonesian Robotic Olympiad (2017)! By virtue of their brilliant performance at the keenly contested competition, which tasked their creative intellect, the team consisted of Shrinandhan Prabu (G11), Daniel Sawai (G9) and Ayden Haoken (G5) and will represent Indonesia at the World Robot Olympiad scheduled for Costa Rica on November 2017.

The theme of this year’s robotic competition is: “Robots for Sustainability”. The mission of the robot is to bring the carbon footprint of one company to zero. The carbon footprint of a company is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the industrial processes of the company. The robot must install solar panels and plant the right kind of trees in the different planting areas to counterbalance the emissions of the company. A breadbox-sized sprinter bot, analysing and sorting, from the team called ‘Baryon Hadron‘ were up against 40 teams from Indonesia in the ‘Carbon Neutrality’ category of the Indonesian Robotic Olympiad (IRO) held on 25 – 26 August 2017 in the Trans Luxury Hotel, Bandung. The judges, seeing how difficult the algorithm needed for the students to accomplish the mission agreed to do a 3rd run in which 10 teams advanced in the finals while 30 teams were eliminated. Most of the robots during the elimination round missed the mission points, yet one exceptional robot of Baryon Hadron from the SWA Robotics Team perfectly collected the colourful cubes, smoothly followed the black line and sorted the solar panels and trees in each area and emerged as the 6th placer.

The most rewarding part of designing robots is that students naturally learn, value teamwork and enjoy the once in a lifetime experience.

IGCSE RESULTS

IGCSE RESULTS

Distinctions (A or A*)

Congratulations to last year’s Grade 10 students on their International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations performance last year. Results are in and we are extremely proud to announce several students have broken the SWA record for number of Grade 10 IGCSE Distinctions (A or A*). These top performers include Shrinandhan Prabu, awarded with 9 Distinctions, and Vanessa Lunardi and Michelle Sutono each with 8 Distinctions. On average, overall subject distinction rates for this cohort were 31%. Student distinction rates averaged 40%, meaning most achieved distinctions on almost half of the subjects they sat examinations for.

This is SWA’s second cohort of students to sit for the IGCSEexaminations and they have continued to improve in breaking records in other ways as well. The cohort’s International Certificate of Education (ICE) Distinction rates represent a 100% increase compared to last year’s and this year a full 100% of students registering for the ICE were awarded the certificate at the Distinction level. Distinction Level is the highest level of distinction and is achieved by obtaining scores in 5 or more subjects of A or A* and grades of C or higher in the remaining two subjects. The International Certificate of Education requires students to complete two language courses, one mathematics course, a social science course, a science course, a creative & vocational course and a seventh additional course in one of these areas.

At SWA we require students to register for eight IGCSE courses as a way to prepare them for the two year summative examinations they will face in the Diploma Programme in Grade 12. While IGCSE examination scores are not required for university applications, they can play an important role in scholarship awards and also as evidence of consistent academic achievement over a student’s high school career.

Taking the IGCSE examinations at the end of Grade 10 helps build confidence in examination sitting and also develop positive student attitudes towards examination challenges.

Congratulations again to our 2017 IGCSE cohort for continuing SWA’s tradition of academic excellence!

SWA NEW RECORD

Congratulations to all of SWA’s May 2017 IB Diploma candidates on their exceptional results, new school records, and great personal achievements. The school community is extremely proud of their accomplishments and we would like to once again thank our parents for their continued support to SWA in its goal to provide an innovative and rigorous academic programme that prepares our students for higher education and careers as the future leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs around the world.

Some of the highlights from this session for our IB Diploma recipients include –

  • highest score of 41 (out of 45) by Elaine Liman and Hansen Tjo
  • 53% of students scoring 35 or above*
  • IB Diploma student average score of 35.1 points*
  • average subject grade of 5.59 (out of 7) for our IB Diploma students*
  • 100% of students scoring above the global average of 30.07 for the May 2017 session* (based on 2016 global average statistics)

*indicates new SWA record

Please note that some of the May 2017 session candidates are completing Enquiry Upon Results which allows them to request remarks for specific subjects and this could result in some positive changes to our already impressive statistics.

Candidates are now patiently awaiting for their higher education admission offers to be finalised upon receipt of their official DP results and we would like to wish them all the best in their preparation for the next big step in their academic careers.
