SPH Sentul City Students Brought Trophies Home from World Scholar’s Cup 2018

Four students at SPH Sentul City have just returned with many awards after tremendous performances at The World Scholar’s Cup.

The World Scholar’s Cup is an international competition that brings together scholars from all over the world to compete in a series of four events. These events consist of debate, collaborative writing, scholar’s challenge, and the scholar’s bowl. This year, four scholars from SPH Sentul City participated: Qeza Amarys Wibisono (Grade 10) in Semarang and Finola Prejady, Sherri Makhijani and Sebastian Suherman (Grade 11) in Jakarta.

In this competition, scholars are required to master six subject areas: science, social studies, arts, literature, history, and the special area focused on the theme of An Entangled World. As the scholars had to balance both their regular schoolwork and studying the competition material, it became a struggle for them to manage their time and energy.

Even so, both of the teams successfully gained invitations to the Global rounds in Kuala Lumpur (June 2018) and Melbourne (August 2018), along with awards in multiple categories. In total, the Semarang team won 21 gold medals, 9 silver medals, and 8 individual and team trophies in total, while the Jakarta team won 11 gold medals and 15 silver medals.

Aside from academics, the World Scholar’s Cup is also a chance for scholars to interact and build networks with people from different cultures and nationalities. The event as a whole also provides a chance for scholars to showcase their skills outside of the academic field through interactive events such as the talent show, which creates a fun atmosphere that allows them to fully enjoy the experience of competing aside from the tension and pressure normally found in the main events.



Overall, regardless of winning or losing, participating in the World Scholar’s Cup was an irreplaceable experience that truly made a lasting impression. With that, students are encouraged to give it a try no matter how inexperienced they think they are, because every learning process should be enjoyable, and this is exactly what the World Scholar’s Cup is all about.
