Prem students in Ivy League programme success

We are very happy to offer our congratulations to three Prem students two of whom have been accepted at competitive Ivy League programmes and another at the South East Asian Movement (SEAM) youth conference.

Grade 10 student Namejs Rossman has been invited to attend the Yale Young Global Scholars Programme (YYGS) at Yale-NUS College, Singapore, to be held from 30th May to 5th June. He has also been awarded a scholarship.

Two hundred Grade 9 and 10 students from around the world will experience an intensive week of academic, leadership activities and lectures facilitated by top Yale and Yale –NUS professors. Other sessions will include skills building and college preparation workshops led by existing Yale-NUS College students and career talks presented by distinguished practitioners. 

At the same time, Namejs will take part in a residential and social activities programme at the brand new Yale-NUS College campus and afterwards have year-long contact with a Yale or Yale-NUS student mentor.

Grade 10 Sebastiano Dell’Acqua was one of 160 successful applicants to the July ‘KWHS (Knowledge @ Wharton High School) Global Young Leaders Academy Programme’ at Wharton College, University of Pennsylvania. 

Whilst there he will learn more about the prestigious College, take part in a variety of activities including financial literacy, entrepreneurship and business, develop interpersonal skills for the 21st Century, attend corporate visits, take part in community service activities and learn about college admissions processes. 

At the same time, this fantastic opportunity will allow Sebastiano to immerse himself in American culture through field trips and excursions, learn about American history and politics plus attend sports activities. 

Grade 11 student Simon Bruns successfully applied to be part of 100 students taking part in the NUS-USP Yale South East Asian Movement (SEAM) Conference at the National University of Singapore campus during May. 

High school students from across South East Asia will connect and consider issues and challenges that face the region today. Using the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community Blueprint the attendees will create policy memos that address the themes of education, social inequality and the arts in South East Asia. Once these are written the memos will be presented to a panel of experts for feedback.

During other sessions, students will meet a diverse range of speakers ranging from artists to ministers, debate and discuss ideas with peers and take part in service opportunities across Singapore. Coming from a European Union country, Simon should be able to provide an interesting perspective on the ASEAN community.
