SIS Takes Pride in Another Remarkable Wall of Honours List
For the students of Singapore Intercultural School (SIS), the world is indeed one large stage to set foot on and conquer. The school proudly shares some of the biggest achievements of its students over the last few years.
Achieving Academic Excellence Here and Abroad
With their hard work, commitment to learning, and passion, the students shine academically not only in Indonesia but all across the globe.
JC 1 Winston Purnomo received gold in the World Mathematics Invitational 2017 – Qualifying Rounds held in Jakarta, Indonesia, in February 2017. Meanwhile, two S4 students, Jovita and Kiaryn, bagged the silver awards for the finals round in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, in July 2017.
Jovita Kartika Tedja became the Best Delegate of the Conference during SVP Plus Model United Nations in Bekasi, Indonesia, in October 2017.
There’s no doubt that the school is achieving its mission in its IB and IGCSE programmes as the students pass and top the examinations. S4 Aaron Judah Bong received the distinction as the Top in Indonesia for Information & Communication Technology in the 2015 Cambridge Examinations. From the same test, Jennifer Sie, another S4, claimed Top in the World in Additional Mathematics.
Jeremy Einstein Brandon Guntoro (SY 2015-2016) is about to walk the same halls as Alexander Fleming as he pursues his biomedical engineering in the Imperial College, London.
Winning the Competitive World of Arts and Sports
With its goal to raise well-rounded children, SIS places equal importance on arts and sports, helping the students to achieve a good sense of excellence in performance across various artistic and sports categories.
The 2016-2017 SIS-KG U15 Girls’ Football Team composed of Audrelia Affandi (captain), Alysha Aryanto, Celine Goutama, Diantha Widyakrisnadi, Erin Justine, Jessica Cross, Jolin Kannitha, Maydeline Yang, Park Hee Yeon and Sherlyn Vebrianly holds the record of the longest winning streak with 22 victories in a row. They went undefeated throughout the entire school year in competitive football, winning 7 titles, including the 2016-2017 Jakarta Area Athletics Conference (JAAC) Championship. With Ruby Lim and Kimberly Sutjiono coming in to replace some of the older players, the team carried this form through to the 2017-2018 season, winning 7 more titles so far, including the 2017-2018 Jakarta Inter-Conference Championship. To cap another fantastic year, 3 of our players (Audrelia Affandi, Celine Goutama, and Sherlyn Vebrianly, all of whom have been on the open-age team since they were in P5) were recently selected by PSSI for the U-16 National Team based on their performances for the school team. Celine will represent Indonesia at the 2018 ASEAN Football Federation Championship in Palembang next month.
