Book donation by the Austrian Ambassador and Author visit

A great news for all book lovers in the GESS community! On 13 February 2020, Thursday, we officially launched a bookshelf in the library solely dedicated to Austrian literature works. This was thanks in no small part to the Austrian Ambassador, Her Excellency, Ms. Karin Fichtinger-Grohe, who very generously donated the books. As a school with strong German and European roots, we are extremely delighted to be able to offer another avenue for our students to widen their cultural horizons. Through collaboration with the Ambassador, we were also able to host award-winning children and youth books author Mrs. Rachel van Kooij. Mrs. Kooij met many of our students and shared more about her experiences with writing and also provided very meaningful insights. We hope it has inspired the aspiring writers in our student body!
