They tested their knowledge in the most prestigious international competition for students, organized for the second time in Moldova
“World Scholar’s Cup”, the prestigious international academic contest, was held in Chisinau for the second consecutive year. The second edition of the competition, hosted by Heritage, enjoyed popularity and the number of those who signed up for the contest of excellence almost doubled. Approximately 260 learners from 26 schools in the country put their knowledge to test and had the opportunity to develop new skills by competing with each other. As the host of this contest, Heritage has reconfirmed not only the title of the best educational institution in Moldova, which complies with the criteria for organizing large-scale international competitions, but also a school that forms the basis of quality education and contributes to the development of 21st century students.

Thomas Brazee, International Representative of WSC: “It is a pleasure for us to be present at the WSC regional round in Chisinau. The participants will be able to qualify in the global round of the competition, which will take place in 6 different countries. Every time we discover intelligent and enthusiastic children, eager to get involved in the competition and Moldovan students are no exception. The purpose of WSC is to motivate them to be better and to learn about the world.”

Ludmila Pavlov, Deputy Head of Policy Analysis, Monitoring and Evaluation Division, Ministry of Education, Culture and Research: “For the second year Heritage is selected by WSC organizers as the most suitable place for organizing the event. We are glad that we have the conditions to host such a prestigious contest. This competition ensures visibility and gives us the opportunity to promote abroad the image of the country, our culture, young people who are creative and intelligent.”

Inga Chiosa, Interim Director, Heritage International School: “We gathered together to celebrate knowledge, creativity, teamwork, and to cultivate the love of learning, researching and discovering, as Heritage is about academic success and the development of students’ multilateral personality. At Heritage children have the opportunity to develop gradually, not just before the contest, and extracurricular activities such as Public Speaking in Russian and English, allow for multilateral development. Moreover, Creative writing and Collaborative writing are a mandatory part of the Cambridge program.”

United by the same thought – learning is not boring 
Grouped in 82 teams, the students have had four tests: Team Debate, Scholar’s Challenge, Collaborative Writing, and the general event – Scholar's Bowl. The theme of this year’s edition was "A World on the Margins", which was approached from the perspective of various disciplines such as literature, history, art and music, social sciences and natural sciences. Students had the opportunity to accumulate points both individually and as part of a team, and discovered that effective communication, solid arguments, the structure of speech, intelligence and agility, as well as the courage to speak in public were the key to success.

Bianca, participant: “I had quite a lot of emotions in the three rounds of debates. We were asked to express our opinion on several topics and teamwork, give feedback to the competing team and suggest them how to improve their ideas. This experience is a chance to develop and demonstrate my potential. After the debates, I learned how to think outside the box and that will help me in the future.”

Timur, participant: “It is my first experience in WSC. It was a bit stressful because there were a lot of people and I felt intimidate me. I was most impressed with the fact that when I said something wrong, no one laughed, everyone was reacting normally and that helped me to have more courage and be more convincing in the following debates.”

The general knowledge test was one of the main tests for the participants. They had 45 minutes to answer correctly 90 questions from various fields. Parents and teachers were the ones who encouraged and kept their fingers crossed during this challenge.

Sofia, participant: “The test seemed quite difficult to me, even if I thoroughly prepared for it. I liked the fact that I could check all the answers to the questions that I was not sure about, and get 0.2 points for each question.”

Aliona, parent: “The subjects seemed extremely difficult to me. I couldn’t have helped her, because it is another approach, much more complex than what I have learned in school. As a result of this experience, I also had something to learn.”

“World Scholar’s Cup” turned out to be not only an intelligence contest, but also a bridge to making new friends. The participants had the opportunity to test their strength and level of English knowledge, but also to quickly generate original ideas by helping each other.

Sergiu, participant: “I came to test my skills, to try a new experience. It was exhausting, but quite cheerful. I managed to make some friends, but I was most impressed by the politeness of the team we have defeated. Even if we became the winners, our opponents smiled and were friendly.”

The best students can participate in the global round
“World Scholar’s Cup” has nominated its finalists and 44 teams from Moldovan schools can go further to participate in the global round, where they will be able to compete and meet other students from many countries of the world. Thus, the most important competition of excellence in education can become a dream come true for learners who are open to the challenges, curious to discover new cultures and people.

And for those ambitious, eager to progress, practice new skills and study in a modern school, Heritage has begun admission for the 2019-2020 academic year. At the only Cambridge School in Moldova, education means latest generation teaching methods, child-centered education, academic performance, but also a wide range of extracurricular activities that guarantee the multilateral development of the learner and guide him towards choosing the right vocation.
