KUCHING, Jan 20: Five St Joseph’s International School Kuching students scored A* in all subjects for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examination.

In a statement today, the school said that the students, who are from the 2022 batch, are Carmen Kueh Ning (11A*), Chloe Nio Ern (9A*), Hii Mao Ann (8A*), Liaw Yi Xuen (8A*), and Michelle Jong Jia Wen (7A*).

Apart from that, a total of 14 other students also managed to obtain straight As in all subjects.

Meanwhile, St Joseph’s International School principal Brother Robert Teoh expressed hope that the impressive results will encourage more students to join the institution and register for the global Cambridge programme.

According to him, the school currently has a total student enrollment of 363, stretching from Year 7 (Form 1) to Year 13 (Upper 6).

He said, though still young, the school has bravely embraced a holistic approach to learning by being a pioneer in offering Physical Education and Music as exam subjects.

He added that in complementing the curriculum, various events are organised to put to trial the practicality of what has been learnt to provide opportunities for students to develop their talents, which paid off well when the students achieved excellent results.
