A promis­ing fu­ture awaits

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Private & International School Guide -

THE in­ter­pre­ta­tion of ex­cel­lence in aca­demic dis­tinc­tion has been the foun­da­tion of the con­flu­ence be­tween La Salle Brothers in Malaysia and St. John’s In­ter­na­tional School (SJIS).

SJIS en­vi­sions a great learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for its stu­dents, fo­cus­ing on var­ied ex­po­sures and the needs of stu­dents to set them on a glo­ri­ous trail-blaz­ing path in higher ed­u­ca­tion stud­ies.

Pre­par­ing stu­dents for one of the most recog­nised pre-univer­sity qual­i­fi­ca­tions in the world, In­ter­na­tional Gen­eral Cer­tifi­cate of Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion (IGCSE) of­fers a cur­ricu­lum frame­work pat­terned for ed­u­ca­tional suc­cess.

SJIS’ fo­cus on var­ied ex­po­sures bal­ances and ad­dresses the needs of stu­dents as well as pro­vides a seam­less pro­gres­sion path­way from pri­mary schools for stu­dents to ex­cel at the IGCSE phase.

The Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Cer­tifi­cate in Ed­u­ca­tion (ICE) is a cus­tom-de­signed group award cer­ti­fi­ca­tion that of­fers a broad cur­ricu­lum.

To ob­tain a Cam­bridge ICE award, it is com­pul­sory for stu­dents to take a min­i­mum of seven sub­jects se­lected from the five IGCSE sub­ject groups.

The Cam­bridge ICE is sup­ported uca­tional and assess­ment prac­tice within SJIS.

It takes into con­sid­er­a­tion a va­ri­ety of learn­ing styles to en­sure a broad and bal­anced pro­gramme of study.

The Cam­bridge ICE pro­vides a va­ri­ety of choices within each of the five IGCSE sub­ject groups, of­fer­ing a flex­i­ble route to the ICE award.

Fur­ther­more, it al­lows SJIS to of­fer a com­pre­hen­sive and bal­anced cur­ricu­lum by recog­nis­ing the achieve­ments of learn­ers who pass ex­am­i­na­tions in at least seven Cam­bridge IGCSE sub­jects from five dif­fer­ent sub­ject groups, in­clud­ing two dif­fer­ent lan­guages.

The Cam­bridge ICE serves a twopronged pur­pose for SJIS stu­dents through a dou­ble-award recog­ni­tion, namely IGCSE and ICE.

Bur­sary for all Lasal­lians

SJIS is a bril­liant dis­til­la­tion of knowl­edge, un­der­stand­ing, rea­son­ing abil­i­ties and skills ren­dered through the guid­ance of well-es­tab­lished, ex­pe­ri­enced and ded­i­cated fac­ulty mem­bers.

This has cul­mi­nated in the soar­ing re­sult per­cent­ages year af­ter year with SJIS suc­cess of gar­ner­ing 57% A* and A in the 2016 IGCSE ex­am­i­na­tions.

Lasal­lians and alumni of Con­vent Bukit Nanas who en­rol in SJIS will re­ceive a 10% bur­sary.
