Semester written exams will be administered for CORE subjects (English; Math; History/Geography; Sciences; and Chinese Mandarin from May 27th to May 29th for Grades 9 and 10. Final performance assessments in Special Subjects were administered from May 20th to 24th.
Grades 11 and 12 students will also sit for the semester written exams in their courses from May 27th to May 30th. These exams simulate the external written assessments that are given at the end of the two-year IB Diploma Programme.
At the high school level, semester written exams for CORE subjects are worth 20% of the overall grade for the term.
The best of luck to our students!
In college, students engage in service learning opportunities that expand their learning outside the classroom. Watch this video and listen to what their parents share:
This semester, the entire Upper School Division, composed of Middle and High School units, has made Friday last block’s focus five global issues: Biodiversity and Ecosystem Loss; Natural Disaster Prevention and Mitigation; Intellectual Property Rights; Marine Safety and Pollution; and Drugs. The selection was influenced by the participation of selected CISM high school students in the Global Issues Network (G.I.N.) student conference held at the Singapore American School (SAS) last November 2012. These representatives joined other students from international schools in Asia who were delegates at that conference. Together, they planned different projects that would show how they intended to address these global issues, not only as a group but also as a school, when they returned to their respective schools.
For almost five months, all our students in the Middle and High units have formed into their respective GANG groups to come up with one major project for this term. They will make a presentation to the CISM community on Friday, May 17th.
It is our hope to continue what we started this semester when we return in August 2013 for a brand new school year. The stone that has been cast into the water will have ripples that will expand into bigger ripples and waves. This will be a sight to behold!
Today is an auspicious day for CISM as we have our very first Diploma Programme Courses candidate sitting his first external examination (Paper One) for Mathematics Higher Level.
We wish the best of luck to Pyo, Suk Chan!!!
As a side note: Pyo has been the recipient of scholarship offers from two universities abroad! Way to go, last man standing!!!
