Close behind was David Xia, also in Grade 11, who finished in the top 5%. Other Trojans who earned Certificates of Distinction for placing in the top 25% were Grade 11 students Patrick Yao and Jacky Or as well as Leo Roberts (Grade 10) and Joe Ye (Grade 9).

Moira Computer Programming

On Friday March 27th, Moira sent two young teams (six grade 9 students and two grade 10 students) to take on senior teams from other schools in the school board. Our head scratching heros did Moira proud. Our mixed grade 9 / 10 team of Sara, Leo, Hatim and Kevin came in fourth. Our grade 9 team of Chance, Brady, Pedram and Saud took second place.  This qualified them for a trip to the Eastern Ontario fnals at Queen's University in Kingston on Saturday April 25th.  Congraulations to all competitors!

International Baccalaureate Students at Moira Secondary Exceed World Standard by 10%

In May 2014, Moira Secondary students excelled in a series of exams created by the International Baccalaureate Organization. The IB program is a rigorous course of study available at Moira which provides students in their final two years of secondary school an enriched learning environment and the opportunity to gain several university credits. After studying six subjects intensively over two years, potential graduates complete assessments and write final exams which are marked externally. Each subject can be taken at Higher Level (3 semesters of study) or Standard Level (2 semesters of study).  Subjects studied at Higher Level are equal to a first year university course at universities in Canada and throughout the world.

Final results show Moira students to be consistently above the world average. In May 2013 students’ results were 13% above the world standard.  This year, Moira’s school average in all subjects topped the IB World Schools average by 10%, and in individual subjects led the world average by as much as 26%.   

Cindy Cooper, IB Coordinator at Moira Secondary, was interviewed about these marks saying, “I am very proud of our graduates and am not surprised by these results.  All of our graduates were accepted into their first choice university, including Harvard College in Boston.  Each year we have an exceptional group of IB students who genuinely care about their education and also care about making a difference in the world.  Their IB results as well as the more than $500,000 in scholarships and awards they were offered are two examples of how amazing they are.” 

The IB Diploma, grade 11 and 12, and the IB Foundations, grade 9 and 10, programs at Moira continue to grow each year:  18 students will complete IB exams in May 2015 and 26 students will complete IB exams in May 2016. 

Thank you to Moira’s dedicated students, staff, teachers and administration for making the IB Diploma, grade 11 and 12, IB Foundations, grade 9 and 10, and Harry J. Clarke’s IB Destinations, grade 7 and 8, an amazing opportunity for students.
