About GESS

School Association

The GESS Association is a private body whose main purpose is to maintain and enhance the interests of GESS. It is a ‘not-for-profit’ society. This means that every cent is re-invested into your child’s education. The Association is registered in Singapore and runs and operates the school. The members of the Association are, for the most part, parents of our students.

What does the Board of Governors do?

The Association is managed by the Board of Governors. Working with the school management, the Board of Governors provides the strategic direction and develops long-term goals for the school to ensure that our students and teachers have the tools required to receive and provide a high quality education. The day-to-day management is of course in the hands of the School Management Team. Members of the Association elect the President, Vice-President, Honorary Treasurer, Honorary Secretary and four Ordinary Members.

Should I be a member of the Association?

If you would like to have a say in the strategic direction of the school, then we strongly urge you to become a member. Members vote on major decisions concerning the school at General Meetings and have access to exclusive information through other communication channels. Important decisions taken at General Meetings have included the introduction of the IB Curriculum and the construction of new campus on Dairy Farm Lane. Members also elect the Board of Governors at General Meetings to represent the Association.

How can I become involved?

The school benefits enormously from different types of expertise from the GESS community. If you would like to actively participate in the work of the school by providing expertise for a specific project or joining the Board of Governors, please send an email to GESS.president@gess.sg.
