Maylis, Year 12

Our Head Student, Maylis, shares her experiences from Dover Court.

  • Dover Court International School Singapore Maylis Head Student IBDP

Hello, I am Maylis, a Year 12 student at DCIS and also one of the school's two Head Students. This will be my fourth year at Dover, and I am happy that the school offers the IB option as it will allow me to stay within the school with its community and teachers.

Even though school only started 4 weeks ago, I am finding that English Literature, which I am taking at a higher level, is the subject I am most interested in. We have been studying Greek Mythology in poetry and novels, and we have looked at allusions between texts such as the Bible and poems from Carol Anne Duffy’s ‘The World’s Wife’. The small class sizes allow us to have more in depth discussions and have everyone’s ideas heard when analysing texts, which I find really interesting and helpful.

My favourite memory from Dover so far is the Year 9 residential trip to Laos. We helped build a school for a local village and we got to play with the children. We got to go kayaking and hiking, as well as visiting a war museum. Overall the trip was fantastic and I will never forget the stories that were made there.

I do not know what career I want to delve into yet, but I know that I would like to pursue something within the business management or linguistic side of things in university. I am currently looking at school in the USA, UK, and France.
