MGIS Cambridge International Exam Wows the Inspector

By Cherry Moriones Doromal

Mahatma Gandhi International School, Manila—Ms. Eve Pennel of the Cambridge International Examinations Compliance Unit conducted an  impromptu examination center inspection at MGIS this week to assess how the latter executes the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Examinations.

It must be noted that the MGIS Grade 10 students are currently taking the IGCSE Examination for the month of May 2013.

MGIS’ IGCSE Examinations Officer Ms. Joan Malabuyoc delightfully mentioned in a casual interview, how the inspector presented an utterly satisfactory assessment and how said officer was impressed by the conscientious conduct by MGIS of  the IGCSE external examinations. Furthermore, MGIS has been recognised to be a seamless example of how a Cambridge International Examination should be organised.

“How about in the local school examinations? How are the Grade 10 students doing?”  When asked, Ms. Joan gladly affirmed that  our  MGIS Tiger scholars are doing well and have, thus far, passed the entrance examinations of top prestigious local universities like the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila, and  De La Salle University.

Mahatma Gandhi International School, Manila, May 8, 2013—
Regional Education Officer Constance W. Buford of the U.S.  Department of State Office of Overseas Schools (Washington DC) and Ms.  Rhonda Roberts of the US Embassy in Manila surprised MGIS with an ocular inspection to assess and have the feel of the daily school operation. 

After the campus tour, presentation of curriculum and brief observation of classes led by Ms. Rose Moyano and Ms. Bee Yuquimpo, the guests left the school with a pleasing evaluation, displaying their strong interest to recommend MGIS to the U.S. Embassy Manila personnel and clienteles who are searching for an ideal Philippine school that meets the international standards.

“They are enthralled at how our students behave, and they love the family atmosphere in MGIS”, said Ms. Bee. “The exclusivity by reason of small number of students in each class in MGIS is another plus factor”, she added.
