Dover Court is Opening a Sixth Form for the First Time in 2017, and They’re Awarding Scholarships!

LearnPost Category - LearnLearn - Post Category - SchoolsSchools

Is your child an academic superstar keen to take their studies to the next level? Dover Court International School is now offering scholarships for their new Sixth Form!

In our recent guide to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme in Singapore, we touched on the significance of the prestigious IB Diploma Programme, which is geared toward students aged 16-19 in preparation for university.

Great news, mama: one of Singapore’s leading inclusive British international schools, Dover Court International School (DCIS), is a candidate school* for the IB Diploma and is pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. They’re offering a limited number of scholarships to students applying to start Grade 12 in August 2017!

How much are the scholarships for?
Successful scholarship students will have their tuition fees discounted by either 50% or 25% for the length of the scholarship (two years). The student will still be responsible for costs such as the registration fee, building fund fee, school uniforms, and additional equipment like laptops and calculators, etc.

Who can apply for a scholarship?
The scholarships are designed both for existing and new DCIS students. As DCIS is not currently EduTrust certified, they cannot accept students on a student pass or long term visit pass.

Is financial standing taken into account at all?
No! DCIS will focus on students showing strong academic ability and demonstrating a passion for learning beyond just the curriculum – lifelong learning is a state of mind, not a skill, after all! Students should demonstrate readiness in one or more key areas, including the arts, technology, humanities, mathematics, sciences, languages or sports.

DCIS also requires excellent academic proficiency in English, and seeks assurance from parents that their child has adequate family support to ensure their success at DCIS.

My child isn’t old enough for the IB Diploma yet, but what can we do to prepare for an application in future years?
Above all else, be ambitious – with your studies, in extra-curricular activities and community service, and with yourself. The IB curriculum is all about a passion for lifelong learning, along with building on existing passions and interests as you look to share these with others.

What is the deadline for applying? What should the application include?
Students must submit all application documents by 15 February, 2017. This includes existing DCIS students. Click here to see the full application form!

The application includes a statement of why the student is applying, what s/he thinks s/he can contribute to DCIS, and how the student demonstrates the attributes of the IB Learner Profile. The application also includes two reference letters, a letter from the student’s parents, and other documentation and examples to demonstrate the student’s involvement in school life.

Overall, you want your application to show the student’s independence, responsibility, perseverance and approach to learning.

What else?
If you want to know more, mama, be sure to contact the admissions office at [email protected], and click here for more information about the application process.

After more than 40 years on the Singapore school scene, DCIS is so excited to be taking this exciting next step onto the global academic stage. Long a champion of individualised learning in Reggio Emilia-inspired classrooms, DCIS offers a campus with extensive grounds and facilities spread across 12 acres. The school believes that a child thrives when there is no limit to what they can learn – what an exciting time to become part of such a dynamic and inspiring community!

*DCIS is a candidate school for the IB Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Dover Court International School believes is important for our students.

Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

Sassy Mama Styling Tips: ⠀
We are all mamas here so we know the importance of garments that offer easy access for pumping and feeding our babes. When shopping for pieces for this time of life look for garments that have easy access with zippers or hidden panels to make getting down to pumping business that much easier while at the office. This dress features a hidden front zip and a forgiving shape for those extra new mama curves. After all the craziness of a new baby it is nice to know that you have a garment that will work with you and help you on your path to success! @msyinmsyang  @sabrinasikora⠀
