January: Alumnus Awarded Harvard Book Prize

Congratulations to our alumnus Anastasia Kurniadi (IB Class of 2019) who was recognised at the Harvard Book Prize Presentation for more than academic excellence. She was celebrated for her self-giving contributions to improving others and the community. She is helping to make God’s goodness real for many.

Harvard believes in ‘making caring common’. Anastasia and the other 25 recipients from junior colleges, polytechnics and the institutes of technical education live this call so well!

The Josephians have demonstrated how determination, effort and great faith in their ability can overcome challenges to produce good results.

January: SJI Releases 2019 International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Examination Results

Summary of 2019 International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) Examination Results:
1. 99.64% of 280 IBDP students from our Class of 2019 cohort were awarded the International Baccalaureate Diploma, with an average score of 40 out of 45 points.
2. Two students were awarded the prestigious Bilingual Diploma.
3. 59% of the cohort (164 students) attained at least 40 points out of 45.
4. 19% (52 students) achieved 43 points and better.

The Class of 2019 includes 122 boys who were admitted to SJI at Secondary 1 in 2014 under the Integrated Programme. The results achieved by our Class of 2019 is evident of a trend that the SJI IBDP relates well with students who enjoyed high academic expectations from the programme. They have found joy in learning by being risk-takers who pursue their interests and passion instead of being rote-learners.

Fr (Dr) Adrian Danker, SJ, Principal of SJI, says “The Class of 2019 has demonstrated how determination, effort and great faith in their ability to overcome challenges can produce good results. More importantly, this Class has exemplified the very best of being a Josephian – they have studied hard, grown up well and contributed to make the school and world a better place. We are very proud of their achievement.”

As a Catholic and Lasallian school, SJI is committed to developing every student’s character and to helping them realize their academic potential, so that they become men and women whose education empowers them to make a positive difference in the world. The IBDP results of the 2019 cohort are an affirmation of the quality of the balanced and holistic education offered at SJI.
