World Scholar’s Cup – Global Round

World Scholar’s Cup – Global Round

Darwin High School students, Zandro Lagman, Cindy Um, Amelia Douglas, Kaitlin Fairclough and Aeron Leyesa competed in the Global Round of the World Scholar’s Cup in Bangkok from 26 to 30 June along with a student from Western Australia, Shaun Hoskisson. 

They joined over 3400 scholars from across 50 countries for an exciting program of keynote speakers, panel discussions and the competitive and community-building events that are part of the Scholar’s Cup format.

The students qualified for the event on the basis of their stellar performances at the inaugural Darwin Round of the Scholar’s Cup, which was hosted at Darwin High School earlier this year. The teams did very well at the Global Round, taking home three silver medals and one gold medal.

‘We had great fun exploring Bangkok and competing. We were very surprised to find out that the World Scholar's Cup was such an enormous international event that was taken very seriously in other countries such as China, Malaysia, Indonesia where some schools offered a course just for the event - some of the participants even had textbooks!’ Zandro

Based on their performances at the Global Round, the students have qualified to compete in the Tournament of Champions to be held at Yale University in Connecticut, USA later this year.
