The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards officially belong to outstanding Indonesian students from Medan’s Sampoerna Academy after successfully defeating thousands of students from all over the world, by showing consistent academic achievement in Mathematics, Accounting, and English Literature. This award is issued by Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), an institution that recognizes the achievements of exceptional students in Cambridge examinations throughout the world.
The students representing Indonesia consisted of Carys Yap, Lindsey Venecia Lee, Celine, Ivanka Chia Min Ling, and Steven Gill. This is an extraordinary achievement for Sampoerna Academy, as well as proving that Sampoerna Academy is one of the leading educational institutions in Medan that is committed to honing the best potential of its students.
Sampoerna Academy is a leading international school in Indonesia offering holistic education from preschool to high school (Playgroup to High School) with a customized curriculum approach (IEYC, Cambridge and IBDP) at every level supported by STEAM learning methods.
Sampoerna Academy as a pioneer of STEAM in Indonesia, encourages students to study subjects through the integration of the five STEAM perspectives, namely through the aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
Therefore, it is expected that with STEAM and this customized curriculum, Sampoerna Academy’s students will be able to develop 5C (Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, and Character) skills that train Sampoerna Academy students to be more sensitive to themselves, society and the environment .
In addition, Sampoerna Academy is supported by experienced and certified local and overseas teaching staff and qualified facilities.
Hugo Liz De Castro, Principal, Sampoerna Academy, underlined the importance of increasing interest in learning. “It is very encouraging and grateful to hear that our students received three awards in the ‘Top in World’ category and two awards in the ‘Top in Country’ category. However, as an educator I see this as just the beginning, I believe that in the future more and more of our students will show their potential and get more rewards. The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards are awards that have been approved through a clear process, in which all the procedures we have taken have complied with the UK ISO 9001 Institute’s qualification and certification audits, “he said.
Going forward, Sampoerna Academy Medan will continue to be committed to improving the quality of education in Medan by continuing to produce outstanding students, especially for Medan and its surroundings.
