IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year-old pupils.

The end of the year is fast approaching and Year 1 have very mixed feelings: we are excited to meet our new teacher and find out what school will be like in Year 2, but sad to be saying goodbye to some new friends and old, many of whom are returning to their home countries or making the move to other parts of Malaysia! It has been a rollercoaster of a ride this year and, whilst we have faced many challenges, we are proud of how we have pulled together as a team and overcome these challenges with humour and determination.

As we finish the last few weeks of distance learning this year, we look back on how far we have come, the progress we have made in our learning, our friendships and our understanding of the world around us. We feel braver and more aware, and have found a new desire to help take care of our planet, and the people on it. Whether you can plant a seed, or throw your trash in the bin, or pick up litter on your next beach trip (whenever that may be!), we can all do our part to make the world a better place. From Year 1B at Repton International School, Malaysia, we hope you enjoy your summer break, and cannot wait to see you back here in August ready for a new school year full of fresh and exciting challenges.
