Singapore, 15 May 2015- Australian International School (AIS) 2014 Year 10 Student, Joel Bulow achieved a Top in the World award for the IGCSE Global Perspective examinations.
Cambridge (IGSCE) Top in the World awards recognise the success of learners who have achieved the highest standard mark in the world for a single subject.
AIS Principal Andre Casson said “I am extremely proud of Joel for this exceptional accomplishment. At AIS we pride ourselves in being globally focused, distinctly Australian and Joel achieving this award in Global Perspectives exemplifies that. In addition to offering a robust and challenging curriculum through the IGCSE, our teachers and staff make a commitment every day to the notion of our students becoming well rounded adults, who have a moral commitment to making our world a better place as reflective, caring, knowledgeable and principled people. “
Joel is part of the first cohort of AIS students to enrol in the two year IGCSE programme after it was introduced at the school in 2013. Cambridge programmes and qualifications are taken by learners in more than 10,000 schools in 170 countries. They are recognised by universities and employers around the world.
Janet Morris, Director, International Network, said “It is extremely rewarding to congratulate Cambridge learners and teachers at the Australian International School who have worked so hard to achieve tremendous success in Cambridge examinations. The results are a reflection of the enormous talent in Singapore, not only among learners but also within the teaching profession. Learners from the Australian International School have a bright future ahead of them, and I wish them every success in their future.”
