Excerpts from the Article:

MALAYSIA - St. Joseph’s Institution International School Malaysia (SJIIM) recently celebrated its fifth batch of International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) scholars through a Scholarship Awards Ceremony on 8 October 2020. The event was organized in ‘new normal’ fashion with notable virtual guests such as SJIIM’s Board of Governors, Ms Yap Su-Yin, CEO of the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation and the proud parents of the scholars attending the event via Facebook Live for the very first time in the school’s history.

A proud Lasallian tradition, the IBDP Scholarship Programme is a cornerstone feature of St. Joseph’s Institution International Schools in Singapore and Malaysia. The scholarship programme is now in its fifth cycle and has been supported by many organizations and well-wishers since its inception in 2016 and in particular, the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation who have been significant benefactors of the initiative.

SJIIM’s Head of School, Mdm Mak Lai Ying Frances congratulated the scholars in her speech and presented the certificates personally to them as they were called on stage to receive their Scholarship Award Certificates. It was certainly a surreal ceremonial experience for the scholars as they stood proud on stage while being cheered on physically and virtually by SJIIM’s Board of Governors, Head of School, guests, teachers, parents and students.
