Filipino students win 175 medals in World Scholar’s Cup


Filipino students from Southville International School and Colleges in Las Pinas, south of Manila, gave honor to the country after obtaining 175 medals at the 2019 World Scholar’s Cup- Tournament of Champion held at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

The Southville team of 35 delegates garnered 83 golds and 92 silver medals in the global finals of the tournament participated in by close to 2,000 scholars from 630 schools in 60 countries worldwide.

According to last year’s result, Southville brought home 66 gold and 43 silver medals from the International Tournament.

“We are in awe of the achievements of our students. The team’s winning is a testament of how our 5Cs — Core Values Character, Commitment to Achieve, Competence, Collaboration and Creativity — come into play as our students excel not only in local, but also in global competitions. Kudos also to our teachers who served as their mentors and to our parents who have believed in our thrust as an institution,” Southville Principal Marie Vic Suarez said in a report.

Indeed, the aim of The World Scholar’s Cup is 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.
