At Global Indian International School (GIIS) in Singapore, there is a focus on academic excellence, holistic development, and global citizenship. Vihaan Hampihallikar, an IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) Grade 12 student at GIIS, exemplifies all these elements and sheds light on his remarkable journey through the years, where passion, academics, and opportunity intersect seamlessly.

Vihaan shares how his passion for Physics was ignited, a subject that has made him want to further study Electric Engineering, thanks to the dedicated educators at GIIS. With a prestigious merit scholarship covering 60% of his tuition fees, generously awarded by GIIS, Vihaan is grateful for the many opportunities afforded to him and reflects on the pivotal role his teachers have played in his school life.

As the proud winner of the Junior Achievement Singapore Company of the Year 2022, Vihaan, alongside a team of 14 fellow IB Diploma Programme students from GIIS, was involved in the creation of a sensory learning instrument tailored for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This innovative endeavor, which was fully supported by several IB teachers at GIIS and external mentors, underscores GIIS's commitment to fostering not just academic prowess but also social responsibility.

Vihaan's multifaceted talents also shine brightly on the sports field. A member of the Singapore national cricket team, his journey to athletic excellence was nurtured at GIIS, where he honed his skills and received unwavering support from his mentors both on and off the field.

In Vihaan's narrative, we witness not just a testament to personal achievement but also a testament to the support, dedication and the value of an education at GIIS.
