SFMS student shines in Global Academic Olympiad

Sep 2016    

A student from St Francis Methodist School (SFMS), Wang Yuxin, has won a Bronze Medal (Mathematics) in the Global Academic Olympiad held from 10-14 July 2016 in Mungyeong, Korea.

Yuxin was part of a team of nine SFMS students, accompanied by two teachers, who participated in the event organised by Global Education Mission (GEM). The SFMS team was the only delegation from Singapore invited to participate in this event, in which about 30 teams from different parts of the world attempted questions on mathematics, the natural sciences and the humanities.

The Global Academic Olympiad is held together with a Global Youth Forum encouraging high school students from North America, Asia and Korea to explore solutions to global issues through discussions and presentations. The Forum also seeks national development through cooperation among countries.

“Loving My Country” was the topic of the Global Youth Forum, in which students presented the competitive and weak areas of their home countries, and shared ways in which they can contribute to the future development of their countries. In addition, they suggested measures which could encourage the cooperation and participation of other countries in solving the challenges and problems identified. The students also prepared a talent show to display the unique culture of their countries, through chorus and/or drama performances.

SFMS is glad to offer such opportunities for our students’ growth and enrichment, through our partnerships with overseas schools such as GEM.
