SMC student brings home more medals from Tournament of Champions in Yale University

Fresh from her amazing feat in the World Scholar's Cup Global Round in  Manila,  Margareth Tapac of Grade 10 Resilience went straight to Connecticut, U.S.A. and successfully represented the country in the Tournament of Champions.

Gayeth competed in the tournament’s point-earning events: Scholar’s Bowl, Scholar’s Challenge, Collaborative Writing, and Team Debate and were tested across 6 areas of discipline: Literature, Social Studies, Science and Technology, Art & Music, History, and Special Area and brought home 5 medals  (4 Silver and 1 Gold).

The World Scholar’s Cup aims to provide a different taste of academic competitions and conferences; a celebration of the joy of learning, a tournament as rewarding for the team that came in last as the team that came in first, and an enrichment opportunity that motivated students not just to demonstrate their existing strengths but to discover new ones.
