FIVE Taylor’s International School K Lumpur (TIS Kuala Lumpur) students recently received the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, marking t school’s continuous success in the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).
Yip Song-Ling (mathematics), Lee Cheol Hee (additional mathematics) and Sylvia Ling Zeqi (chemistry and Chinese as a First Language) made the school proud with the Top in the World awards.
On the other hand, Asaad Ahmed Ghulam Nabi Athar (First Language English) and Shreya Dristi (global perspectives) earned the Top in Malaysia awards.
TIS Kuala Lumpur observes a few golden rules to provide its students with academic excellence and a holistic experience.
The first rule is to give passionate learners a learning environment to flourish. At TIS Kuala Lumpur, encouraging students to be enthusiastic, inquisitive and self-motivated is the fuel that leads to a better classroom experience.
The second golden rule is to cultivate global citizens among students. To create a better understanding of the world, TIS Kuala Lumpur emphasises the learning of global themes.
“Being a global citizen is about learning to be culturally aware and a critical thinker who questions why certain issues are happening. To do that, you need critical awareness and research skills,” says the school’s principal Peter Wells.
Another rule to live by is becoming a respectful and caring individual. Through a range of extracurricular activities at TIS Kuala Lumpur, students learn to respect the community and environment.
Lastly, shaping resilient students is vital in the TIS Kuala Lumpur learning environment. Adapting to today’s everevolving environment requires students to be articulate and analytical learners.
To nurture top achievers in an everchanging education landscape, it is the responsibility of parents and educators to see students as unique individuals and mould them into passionate learners, respectful and caring individuals, globally aware citizens, resilient individuals and responsible leaders
While the Outstanding Learner Awards achievement continues to echo the hallways, a strategy is underway to raise the bar in the next IGCSE.
“We have our teachers looking at examiner’s reports, seeking feedback from students and building upon what works. It is about learning what we’ve done in the past and continually pushing the boundaries further. That way, we will continue to gain success,” adds Wells.
