Preparing for Launch of IB Diploma Programme

09 January 2017

Our commitment to high quality, challenging, international education by providing our students a gateway to the future

  • IB Diploma Programme 2017

IB Diploma Programme

In the Secondary School, we will launch the IB Diploma Programme in August 2017. Dover Court International School now has the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) and is an authorised IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to a high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students in preparing them for the future.

Our IB teachers have now completed their 4 week training programme and have received their certificates this week. Congratulations to Mr. Cotterill, Mr. Jury, Ms Kertrestel, Ms Mahoney, Ms McKernan, Mr. O’Shea, Mrs. Rinaldi and Mr. Tuckley for the successful completion of the training. Mr. Woodhall, Mr. Smith and Mr. Whisby will also be commencing their training later in the year, alongside new members of staff who will be joining DCIS in August. All of the teachers are extremely excited about the launch of the IB and are busy planning their schemes of learning and beginning to prepare resources for the new academic year.

We are also delighted to announce the launch of our IB Diploma Scholarship. Successful recipients will have their tuition fee discounted by either 50% or 30% for the length of the scholarship. We are looking for students with strong academic ability, excellent academic proficiency in English and a strength in one or more areas of the arts, technology, humanities, mathematics, science, languages or sports. We also expect scholarship students to have a readiness to undertake service learning contributing to the school and local community.

In the meantime, if you have any queries regarding the IBDP at DCIS, please contact our IBDP Coordinator, Heather Rinaldi: heather.rinaldi@dovercourt.edu.sg .
