New Campus Project


 

New GESS Campus on Dairy Farm Road

GESS is set to move in to a brand new custom built K12 campus on Dairy Farm Road in 2018. The project opens an exciting new chapter in the school’s development as two existing campuses will be consolidated into one purpose-built school with brand new facilities.

With the aim to grow the school community by up to 2,000 new students, construction work on the site commenced on January 15th, 2016. The campus will be ready to move into during the 2018 June/July school holidays in order to operate by August.


Project Design

Led by Project Director, Ms Ng Lee Ping, the School Management team and the Board of Governors, as well as working in close collaboration with teachers, staff members, parents and external consultants, we have developed a detailed project design brief which our architects and designers are currently implementing.

The new campus includes important school facilities and spaces that are designed for the mindset of future generations. These include a sports field and hall, swimming pool, music and drama facilities, age and subject-specific classrooms, canteen, specialist rooms, design technology studio, library and an auditorium.

Our consultancy team comprises of P&T Consultants Pte Ltd (Architectural and Structural Consultants), Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner (SEA) Pte Ltd (Mechanical and Electrical Consultants) and Davis Langdon KPK (Singapore) Pte Ltd (Quantity Surveyor Consultant). These teams are working closely with our internal Project Management Team to develop the new Campus Project at Dairy Farm Road. The builder awarded this contract is Tiong Aik Construction Pte Ltd.

IB Curriculum

The English speaking European Section of GESS is a fully fledged International Baccalaureate World School, and one of the few in the world who are authorised to deliver the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Since opening in 2005, the European Section has grown rapidly to become a school with a reputation for quality education with a strong community feel. We now have over 600 students. The vast majority of our students are European passport holders, for whom GESS represents a vital connection with home. Students are thus provided with a safe, friendly and familiar environment in which they are challenged to thrive as they grow into independent and responsible global citizens.

Our academic and pastoral programmes are designed to support this demographic and ultimately to prepare our students for returning to Europe or for entry into European universities. To this end we endeavor to support mother tongue language acquisition so that our students do not lose this vital connection with their home culture. Fortunately, given the high entry requirements into European schools and colleges, this also means that our students are especially well prepared for study all over the world, particularly North America, the UK and Australia.

The Pre-School department provides education from 18 month to 6 years in either English or German. Children are placed in groups according to their age.

 

German Curriculum

Since the school was founded in 1971, the school has evolved into a school with two sections. As an accredited “Excellent German School Abroad”, the German Section of the German European School Singapore (GESS) offers all major German school leaving certificates. The European Section is an authorized IB World School offering education in English across all three IB programmes.

The German Section supports the students to develop their German roots. We give them wings for the linguistic demands of a globalized world through our differentiated English programme from grade 1 onwards. In secondary school some subjects are taught in English. Our students are benefitting from numerous bonding activities and have additional space to enjoy the internationality of the school.

Our Pre-School department provides education from 18 month to 6 years in either English or German. Children are placed in groups according to their age.
