SPH Lippo Cikarang Students Bring Medals Home from International Junior Math Olympiad & VANDA Science International Competition

This summer on July 27, 2019, three SPHLC students went to Malaysia for the International Junior Math Olympiad (IJMO) and VANDA Science International Final Competition held jointly in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Abigail Boen (Gr. 7), Owen Sidarta (Gr. 8), and Dayeon Moon (Gr. 10, each brought Bronze medals home representing Indonesia.

  • Abigail Boen: Bronze Medal in VANDA Science Competition
  • Dayeon Moon: Bronze Medal in IJMO
  • Owen Sidarta: Bronze Medal in IJMO

The IJMO is an international mathematics competition held annually in different countries across Asia. It is an ideal platform to showcase potential and abilities in math in an international arena. The VANDA Science Competition is an international science competition focused on a student’s ability to think critically and creatively in solving scientific problems.

Abigail joined both competitions representing SPH LC. She was eager to get the opportunity to join an international competition in a foreign country and to experience competing with students from all over Asia. Abigail also last year in the math competition in Singapore. She is excited to represent her school and country at this competition and grateful to bring home a Bronze medal.

Another student who joined IJMO, Owen, studied hard all summer. His studies paid off when he received the medal. He says, “It was all worth all the time invested!’ It was a great experience to participate in an international competition.

Competing is not just about winning. It is about challenging yourself to compete with top students in a global context and experience the world outside the school community. Students face real challenges and develop their endurance and hard work.  They also grow in their confidence and passion to study math and science.

Each is grateful to God for His blessings and gifts. To God be the glory.
