Students and teachers at Dulwich College Shanghai are celebrating yet another exceptional set of IB results as the International Baccalaureate Organisation announced its May 2015 Diploma Programme results.
All 67 members of the Class of 2015 were entered for the full IB Diploma, which is recognized as the world's most demanding high school qualification and our pass rate was a stunning 100%. Unlike most IB schools, we do not pre-select students for entry into the IB Diploma, but give all students the opportunity to enter this most challenging programme. This year was no exception.
The DCS average Diploma point score was 36 points, which is well above the world average of 29.81 points.
A remarkable 22.4% of our students achieved scores of 40+ points, with the highest score 44.
The students from this year’s cohort will move on now to world class universities and colleges throughout the USA, UK, Asia and Europe.
In eight exhilarating days of sport Dulwich College Shanghai’s Senior students have won three major ACAMIS sports tournaments, taking on the best Schools in China and South East Asia. On Saturday, 24th October, the U18 Girls Volleyball Team won a titanic final against Suzhou Singapore School to win the first of the three titles. The team won all their games on Day two and three of the competition putting together a string of confident and determined displays. Team captain Andrea Chan and Year 11 student, Sophia Daenan, displaying some powerful and accurate outside hitting; both girls were named alongside Anne-Sophie Pierre in the All Star Team for the whole tournament.
Seven days later, again in Shanghai, the Girls Netball and Rugby Teams travelled to NAIS to compete for their respective ACAMIS titles. Eight schools including teams from Jeju, Korea and three Schools from Hong Kong travelled to make this a challenging and rigourous two days of sport. The girls were required to win six games over the two-day event while the boys had to put together a winning streak of eight games to secure victory. Team Captains Alex Todorov and the multi talented Andrea Chan, both Year 13 students, led their teams into battle. Both Captains were attending their 3rd ACAMIS tournaments representing the College. The girls Netball Team arrived as defending champions, determined to keep their title.
After two bruising days of competition, the two teams arrived simultaneously in their respective finals unbeaten; the boys facing NLCS Jeju for the second time and the girls facing Kellett from Hong Kong. Both teams went down early in their games with the boys conceding only their 4th try of the tournament and the girls caught napping as Kellett took a 5 point lead. Both teams rallied and worked tirelessly to regain the advantage, the boys finishing slightly earlier win a 19-7 victory and then heading straight to the Sports Hall for the dramatic and noisy end to the Netball game, that saw both teams celebrating together.
Overall, it was great centre court play and dominant performances in the circle at both ends that made the Netball team impossible to breakdown. In rugby, with both speed and power the forwards and backs of the Rugby Team combined perfectly to end the 10 a-side season with an unbeaten record having played 15 and won 15 games. The team finished the season with a record of 448 points for and 87 points against; Captain and 2nd Row Alex Todorov scoring 11 tries and making 38 conversions and winger John Hodge running in 12 tries in the season. Congratulations to all the students and staff involved in all three victories. It is unusual to win one ACAMIS title let alone three and we now look forward to the Senior Basketball and Football seasons and the prospect of further successes.
