Year 9 Science Fair

Egg Challenge

Today marks the end of the POWIIS Egg Challenge among all the Year 10 students! This is part of their PSHE lesson about responsibility. They were each given an egg to take care of as if it was their baby, carrying it around at all times and even coming up with fun activities for their egg to participate in!

AIMS Young Musician Award 2018

Joshua Lau (Year 9) and Maegan Ang (Year 10) took part in the AIMS Young Musician Award of the Year 2018 at Nexus International School in Putrajaya last weekend.

Both students were in Category B (aged 11 to 14). Out of 27 participants from international schools in Malaysia, Maegan was awarded the ‘Special Mentioned’ prize and Joshua Lau was chosen to be one of the four finalists that competed in the Final round the next day.

The standard was extremely high and the judges graded the performance on clarity, confidence in their playing (that includes stage appearance), quality of musicianship and stylistic understanding. Both executed their performances very well and the judges spoke very highly of their musicianship skills. Well done!

Today is the last day of teaching in school for the sixth formers before their examinations. At lunchtime they planted a nutmeg tree as a gift to the school. Nutmeg has many wonderful attributes – just like the students themselves.
