Annually, the SIS Swiss International Schools Group honours the three best extended essays by graduating students. The written assignments originate in the context of the final examination corresponding to the Matura, Abitur or International Baccalaureate (IB) exam. The topics of the extended essays differ greatly. However, their common denominator is their presentation of an independent, autonomous piece of reflection and research, captured in a 4.000 word paper.
In 2021, Nicolas Zhu from SIS Stuttgart-Fellbach won second place for his essay, based on “A moral analysis on Michael J. Sandel’s ‘The Case Against Perfection’ in comparison with utilitarianism – the ethics of genetic engineering.” Pictured is Nicolas with Mr. Corner (Principal) and Ms. Pittman-Zupic (IB Coordinator), who recently returned from Canada to receive his award.
The school community is proud of this prestigious achievement and the hard work put in by all the graduating students.
