After School programmes

GESS offers a range of after-school programmes for students from Kindergarten to grade 12, including sports, music, creative and language programmes. Please find below more information on the different programmes available for your child.

Sports CCAs

Sports CCAs

We offer Team Sports and a wide selection of other Sports as well as our Swim Programme, keeping students of all ages fit and active. Our Senior Sports Programme is aligned to the 3 ACSIS seasons to offer High School students (G9-12) the option to participate in different sports every season. Moreover, training twice-a-week (plus matches), will give them a better physical, technical and tactical preparation to face other schools.

Our participation in the “Athletic Conference of Singapore International Schools” (ACSIS) affords GESS students the opportunity to compete in sports tournaments involving other international schools in Singapore. ACSIS divides the school year into three sporting seasons, starting in August and ending in May.

More information on our Sports programmes can be found in our handbook and on the CCA blog (including pictures/short videos). To learn more about our school teams and tournaments please visit our Sports Portal. To check on enrolment dates and register your children please visit the CCA Portal.

These activities are considered part of the school’s educational programme and students get the opportunity to develop new talents or to build up existing strengths.
