The students who were given Principal's Commendations in January
Each month we will publish a roundup of the students who have been awarded a Principal’s Commendation to share the great work that has been happening in school.
Congratulations to everyone who has received a Principal’s Commendation and keep up the good work if you want to see yourself here!
Sebby Patient, 10S
For helping to create the brilliant ‘Y9 Intercultural Awareness’ trip video. Sebby was proactive and creative and showed much team spirit in the production of this video.
Last year Sebby also created an excellent video for his HPL Spanish homework and as a consequence was asked to help Year 9 students. The video was shown at a staff development day with our colleague at BISS Pudong and was applauded and very much liked by all the teachers.
Lara Woo, 7B
For producing an excellent piece of work entitled ‘A Travel Guide’ to illustrate what William The Conqueror would have needed to know about the land he had conquered. Lara researched about England in 1066 and went far beyond what was expected. The piece is very well presented and uses humour from beginning to end, showing Lara’s engagement with history and enthusiasm for the subject.
Kelly Kim, 11P
For producing an original and creative presentation on the Russian Civil War. Kelly has shown her passion for history as well as her creativity in the use of action figures to depict key moments of the Russian Civil War. In doing so she has produced an engaging and useful learning resource.
Bhavya Ahuja, 10P, Milka Tuomaala, 10B, Ingerid Haaberg, 10B, Milan Patel, 10B, Ben Hodge-McKenna, 10S
For producing an exceptional multi-media presentation entitled the ‘Road to War’ depicting Hitler’s actions during the 1930s. This piece of work made use of iPad Applications (iMovie and iMotion) and the new Apple TV. Their presentation was assessed by fellow class mates for historical content and accuracy, interest and originality as well as using multi-media and was judged to be outstanding. An excellent example of 21st Century learning.

Alvin Law, 3U
For outstanding work in the topic ‘Different Places, Similar Lives.’ Alvin has shown independence of learning through his inquisitiveness in asking, ‘Why was Hong Kong ruled by a country like Britain so far away?’ He rose to the challenge and singularly researched answers to this question. He then reflected upon his learning by presenting his findings to his mother and practiced again with his class, before finally presenting his research to Mr. Foyle. The ability to research, reflect and then reinforce learning through conveying it to others are excellent skills that Alvin can build upon and develop to become an independent learner.
