SIM IA’s inaugural Awards Day was held on Friday, 20th July 2018, in recognition of our students’ achievements in the academics and character development. More than 150 students, parents, agents and partners gathered to celebrate in their joy! The ceremony kicked off with a welcome address from our Principal, Mr Bala and a keynote shared by our Communications Associate, Ms Jasmine Tan, who spoke candidly and passionately about her journey in life.
The school has been focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to look at developing inquiry in students. As the world now is about the internet of things, Mr Bala shared that learners now have to think about “being effective problem solvers, a creator, an effective employer, and knowledge workers to become successful” in this day and age. Instead of teaching Mathematics and Science separately, SIM IA’s STEM programme combines different disciplines and shows students how these work together seamlessly in the real world. Because students are taught in a manner that integrates knowledge and skills from different disciplines, they find it easier to apply the skills they have learnt to solve problems.
