From us at SMN to all of our alumni, Welcome to Sekolah Mutiara Nusantara Alumni page. A place for former SMN students to re-connect with old friends and expand their networking. We are very excited to be able to re-connect with all SMN inspiring graduates wherever you are.
SMN is my second home and I can’t imagine not coming back for the first day of school. I’ve met amazing people here and have been given an abundance of opportunities to develop my soft skills. The IBDP has also helped me become a more open-minded individual.
I feel like SMN has helped me to become a mature, independent and responsible adult. SMN does not solely focus on academic success, but also embeds life lessons and ‘adulting’ along their learning journey.
IB and SMN (delivering lessons in English and ToK & cultural anthropology) allowed me to be more open-minded and as a result, I am now working with people of cultural backgrounds that are different from mine. For instance, Aboriginal Australian children and other Australians. It also helped me in my English language, as I am now teaching ESL students in English.
IB program has changed my life a lot. Through IB I became more mature by learning how to be more responsible and cooperate each other. Eventhough I only attened SMN for two and a half years, but I felt comfortable and enjoyed the school a lot. I think SMN contributed lots of motivation, unforgettable memories, and positive things in my High School life through IB curriculum. I never regret I’ve been taking IB and attending SMN in my life.
Taking IB hasn’t changed me as much as it has developed me. Throughout my study in SMN, I have developed a greater confidence in myself and in my studies. Studying with a great group of classmates and with great teachers, has helped improved my creativity in many areas of study, and has also given me a set of practical skills that I am able to apply in areas beyond studying. IB wasn’t a piece of cake, but it wasn’t as hard as everyone kept telling me, and I am sure it was due to my teachers, my classmates, and my learning environment as a whole.
There were so much love given by the teachers during my time as a student. We were a small scale group of students going through our IB Program. It was when the IB Program has just started, so the board, staff and teachers working very hard to support us in order to pass our IB Program. SMN held various events like Christmas, Harvest Night, and many more involving families, staff and the students and it gave us opportunity to put every student to show their talents. Sekolah Mutiara Nusantara helped me to find a path towards what should I do for a passion and I thank you for that.
