From July 14 – 15, 2019, a team composed of students from Ateneo HS and our very own Lance Patrick C. Pangilinan (G12A) participated in the World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) 2019, Manila II Regionals, in Southville International Schools and Colleges, Las Piñas City.
The WSC is an international team academic program with students participating from over 82 countries. It aim is to attract students interested in learning beyond typical school curricula and to focus on bringing students from different cultures together to discuss issues and ideas relevant to today. “The idea behind the World Scholar’s Cup was to create something different than traditional academic competitions and conferences: a celebration of the joy of learning, a tournament as rewarding for the team that came in last as the for the team that came in first, an enrichment opportunity that motivated students not just to demonstrate their existing strengths but to discover new ones.” – scholarscup.org
