SJI International bags Top in the World awards for IGCSE exams
THREE 16-year-old students broke new ground for St Joseph's Institution International (SJII) this month by winning four Top in the World awards for last November's International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) exams.
Pham Minh Tue from Vietnam received the award for additional mathematics, while Singaporean Juan Ru Hoong won for international mathematics.
Joshua Fung from Malaysia won for additional mathematics and coordinated science, making him the first SJII student to win two Top in the World awards.
"It is a great honour and I am very, very pleased," said Joshua, who lives with his grandmother, whom he called "a solid rock of support". His father, a lawyer, and mother, a doctor, live in Malaysia. Joshua also thanked maths teacher Patrick Denousse, who taught all three award winners, for inspiring him.
