Students across the Dulwich College International (DCI) network are already receiving offers to continue their studies at some of the best universities around the world.
This year’s graduating classes have received offers to attend leading institutions in the US including Yale University, Northwestern University, Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins University and Barnard College. Those students looking to study in the UK have received offers from leading Russell Group universities including: University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, University of Bristol, Durham University, King’s College London, Imperial College London, University College London, and the University of Warwick.
Heather Pineda said: “I am extremely proud of what we do for students. Our comprehensive approach to university counselling promotes student development and personal planning throughout their time at our campuses. We ensure all our students have the skills to thrive academically and socially at their chosen university and beyond. We provide comprehensive information early on and assist students as they build personal profiles and portfolios. When students begin Senior School they are introduced to a comprehensive and tailored university and career planning – the Dulwich Success Plan. This ensures students are well informed, well prepared global citizens and strong candidates for the best universities in the world.”
Top universities are selecting a small number of students from a large pool of academically successful candidates. Significant numbers of students receiving offers from some of the best universities in the world demonstrates the strength of the extracurricular provision and support offered to students at the Dulwich College International schools.
Heather Pineda will be visiting Dulwich College Yangon in March, and will talk about the approach to university counselling present in all DCI schools. Contact the school on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on her visit or to learn more about university preparation at Dulwich College Yangon.
On 17 January 2017, Dulwich College Yangon hosted the first session of a 6-week programme on parent-child attachment. The programme is run by Certified and Accredited Child Therapist, Wailee Kiu, for parents, guardians and carers.
The objective of this course is to provide parents and guardians with the confidence and skills to interact with and care for their child effectively. A skilled parent contributes to the child’s healthy growth and development, and a happier child learns better at school.
The course offers a safe and playful environment where experiential learning supports the structured lessons. It uses the latest research on early attachment, neuroscience, and child development as well as principles of Play Therapy and Filial Play. It is conducted in English and Burmese. Please contact the front desk for more information on the course.
The Dulwich Choir has been very busy this month with a number of external performances around town. A performance at a black-tie charity ball and a Christmas bazaar were highlights, and now demand for the choir is growing. The choir has had to decline some recent requests to allow them to prepare for our own Christmas show, where they will perform outside the front of the school on Friday 9 December. See a few photos below of the choir in action.
