Our new cohort of Year 12 IB students have settled in well to the challenging programme and our Year 13 students are now more than half way through their IB journey. The Sixth Form students hold many school leadership roles and are serving as impressive role models for younger students. In addition to their academic studies, the students take part in Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) projects. The CAS projects are student initiated and are designed to ensure that the students giveback to the community, complement their studies with physical exercise and extend their creativity and critical thinking skills. Students are then required to reflect on how they have met each of the 7 Learning Outcomes for CAS
Year 13 have now started preparing for their futures and are working with our Careers and University Guidance Counsellor to explore options and make plans. To support this the students have enjoyed presentations from both local and international universities. The first round of university applications have already been submitted.
We are delighted to announce the continuation of our IB Diploma Scholarship. Successful recipients will have their tuition fee discounted by up to 50% 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.
On Thursday 6th December we will be holding a parent workshop: Understanding the IB, at 8.45am in the Juilliard Music Room, by the main canteen, for those who wish to find out more about the IBDP and the Sixth Form. We look forward to seeing many of you there.
In the meantime, if you have any queries regarding the IBDP at DCIS, please contact our IBDP Coordinator Dominic O’Shea Dominic.OShea@dovercourt.edu.sg
