SIS Hosts University of Canterbury

The school hosted a group of delegates from the University of Canterbury on Thursday, 23rd August. They addressed grade XI and XII students and introduced them to the University culture, departments and the courses they offer. They also discussed the opportunities in New Zealand for the students after graduating and the friendly immigration rules to support the international students. A competition called “ACE THE CASE” was organized for grade XII students by the University. Students were asked to identify one local/national problem, analyze it and work on the framework that can provide a solution to the problem. They were also asked to participate in an essay writing competition on the prompts provided by them. Students get two weeks to submit the same online. Five winners of this competition will be awarded the Dean Award Scholarship by them to study a course of their choice at the University.

The event witnessed an overwhelming and enthusiastic participation from the students. Burning issues like Women safety, Sexual Health, Environment Degradation and Poverty were addressed by them. Students were judged on their problem-solving abilities, communication skills, and teamwork.
Winners of the Dean Award Scholarship will be announced on 10th September 2018.

Career Fair at SelaQui

The Career Fair organized at SelaQui International School in Dehradun, one of the best CBSE boarding school in Indiaon April 20, 2018 saw great fervor among the students. Only a few among the top 10 boarding schools in India, SelaQui takes great initiative and pride in training students of classes 10, 11 and 12 (the SeQuins) and offer them the opportunities available in the different avenues of college education that would make them ready for their future enterprise.

The students interacted in an engaging session with representatives of more than 15 colleges and universities from the USA, among which were the big campuses of Arizona State University and Indiana University. The representatives of these universities gave the SeQuins a brief introduction to their institution following which the students went to the desks of those institutions that interested them and clarified their queries about admission procedures, eligibility criteria and scholarships.

The students were given brochures with complete information and contact details. Interestingly most universities offered 200+ research programs which fortunately, give the students a lot of options to choose from. Such fairs open up the students’ horizon to a plethora of opportunities out there and help us make informed choices. Kudos to our SelaQui!
