SERI Mulia Sarjana International School (SMSS) has reported 96 per cent pass rates in English, Mathematics and Science in the Cambridge Progression Test, as they aim to benchmark themselves against schools adopting the system internationally.

The progression test - administered to students in year’s three to five with a “checkpoint” test at year six before students step into secondary level - is part of the school’s move to introduce the Cambridge Primary Curriculum this year, according its principal Chong Wee Meng.

In her address at SMSS’s 16th Graduation and Awarding Ceremony for primary and kindergarten pupils, the principal revealed that SMSS plans to offer a student exchange programme to those in years five and six, to “expose pupils to youth and leadership programmes and take on more international competitions”.

The school also plans to introduce the English Language Learners Program to support pupils who find learning the English as a second language challenging.

Three classes of primary six graduates were honoured yesterday, along with four kindergarten three classes. Individual awards for academic excellence were also presented; divided into bronze, silver and gold categories.

The 16th Graduation and Awarding Ceremony was attended by Acting Senior Special Duty Officer of the Private Education Section under the Ministry of Education, Zaman Hj Gapar, and will be followed by a graduation ceremony for secondary students on Sunday.
