Students from St Joseph’s Instituition (SJI) and St Joseph’s Institution International did well in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).
The results were released on Jan 5.
It was a significant milestone for SJI, as the Class of 2014 is the school’s first batch of IDBP students. They were admitted in 2013 for the two-year pre-University programme.
Not only did all 76 students pass, the school’s average score was 39.4 points out of a maximum of 45 points. Three students achieved a near perfect score of 44 points. Two students were also awarded the prestigious Bilingual Diploma. Twenty students achieved at least 42 points, while 44 students scored at least 40 points.
“We are heartened that our students were not only able to develop themselves academically but many also found time to grow as a person through their active participation in the school and wider community; aiming to be a positive difference in the lives of others,” said principal of SJI, Dr Koh Thiam Seng.
For SJI International, six of its students scored a perfect 45 points.
Three other students scored 44 points, while seven others scored 43 points.
According to Mr Bradley Roberts, principal of SJI International, 26 percent of students from SJI International’s Class of 2014, scored 40 points or more – a result achieved by only 6.9 percent of students worldwide.
“The academic programme at SJI International is only one part of our truly holistic programme, which sees all our students fully involved in the very extensive programme of activities, sport and community service,” said Mr Roberts.
SJI International started its IBDP programme in August 2007.
