The Gandhi Memorial Intercontinental School (GMIS) Jakarta is ready to hold its third TedxYouth event on Saturday March 6, 2021.
The school is licensed to expose their students of the senior school to participate in this prestigious event that provides participants a unique opportunity to express their views, to inspire and inform on a wide range of topics. Under the guidance of our Principal Mr. A P Singh, this event, like those of the preceding ones, will be an engaging one when 15 confident Gandhians from grades 9 to 12 present on contemporary topics ranging from ‘New Normal, New People,’ ‘Embracing Differences,’ ‘Double Standards in Society,’ and ‘Mindfulness.’
The selection process has, as in the past years, been a rigorous one in which students were assessed and finalized on the criteria of the relevance of topic, content, communication and presentation skills, and academic honesty and originality.
TedxYouth@GMIS will be held in the school auditorium from 11 A.M. Strict Covid 19 precautions will be followed. The participants will be under supervision, seated in an open area 2 meters from one another; they will enter the venue and make their presentations one at a time, and leave the school immediately after. All candidates and teachers involved will be required to wear masks and maintain standards of hygiene.
GMIS was founded in 1950. It is a co-educational IB World School that runs the PYP, MYP, and IBDP and IBCP Programme, besides IGCSE, BSEISI and the Ujjian Nasional curriculum. It is a community of learners that practices its school motto of “Virtu et Labor’- hard work is the basis of all goodness.
