Best WSC Results in PJC History!

Congratulations Team PiONEer for achieving the BEST results ever in the World Scholars’ Cup (WSC)! The preparation work began in early 2017 with many hours put into training the team and it was truly a ONE Pioneer effort as both teachers and alumni rallied together to coach the teams, even putting in extra hours in the weekends. The coaching team consisted of Mr Nigel Kaw, Mdm Helyaty, Ms Megan Miao, assisted by Alumni Stephanie Lee, Ahmad Asyraf and Candice Wee. Many other PJC WSC alumni also assisted in training by judging debates and setting questions.

This year's Global Round was the largest in the tournament's history and saw 3691 scholars from 40 countries taking part. The senior division consisted of 1539 scholars.
