MODEL UNITED NATIONS (MUN) PARTICIPATION AT NHJS-MUN

MODEL UNITED NATIONS (MUN) PARTICIPATION AT NHJS-MUN

The SWA Model United Nations had the opportunity to join the Model UN conference at Jakarta School NHJS-MUN on Saturday, March 2nd, 2019. We had much success as our members performed well and learned a great deal. 

Samuel (Phillipines), Ye Eun (Qatar) and Hyun Seo (India) participate in the World Health Organization (WHO) working on tackling the issue of Counterfeit Medicine. Hyun Seo was awarded best delegate at the conference and his resolution which provided a modern solution using technology received ample support. 

David (Pakistan), Hyee Eun (Slovakia), and Eunike (Spain) participated in the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) working on the issue of Uyghur human rights issue in China. 

The students had a great time and were able to put themselves in the shoes of the world's top diplomats, tackling real world issues with innovative solutions.

SWA ES STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN SINGAPORE ICE DRAGONS HOCKEY CLASSIC

Oliver (Grade 3) and Liam (Grade 4) enjoyed their first U10 ice hockey tournament of the season representing Indonesia in the Singapore Ice Dragon Classic this past weekend at the JCube. Both players played well up against some strong competition and finished with a 1-3 record after a strong start to the tournament in beating Singapore 6-0. Liam also took Star of the Game honours in the game against Bangkok Yaksa for his strong defensive efforts.

There was a total of 8 teams participating in the U10 division and 32 teams overall in the annual tournament were from all over SE Asia including Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the hosts, Singapore.

We are very proud of both their individual and team accomplishments. The team lost in the semi-finals of the Silver Cup to a strong Australian team and we look forward to upcoming tournaments in Bangkok, and China this season.

If your child(ren) is interested in playing the fast growing sport of ice hockey please feel free to visit the programme operators at the Bintaro XC rink or contact Chris Warren for more details.

REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT BY OUR SWA MATHEMATICIAN IN SOUTHEAST ASIAN MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIAD X (SEAMO X)

REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT BY OUR SWA MATHEMATICIAN IN SOUTHEAST ASIAN MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIAD X (SEAMO X)

The Southeast Asian Mathematical Olympiad or SEAMO syllabus is developed based on the Singapore Mathematical Olympiad curriculum and 40% of contents were modified to meet international standards. It is a comprehensive syllabus which exposes students to in-depth, stimulating and interesting mathematical problems. 

In January 2019, one of our Grade 5 students, Trevyn, took part in the SEAMO X and won Silver in this competition. He ranked 26 out of 158 participants. We hope this wonderful achievement from Trevyn will further inspire our young mathematicians in ES to sharpen their maths skills and strive more in other competitions.
