Dear students, parents, colleagues and members of our community
We hope everybody had an enjoyable summer holiday and that you are now ready for an exciting and fulfilling year at GESS! On behalf of the Board of Governors, I would like to warmly welcome our returning students, parents and staff back to GESS, and for those new to our school and community, welcome to GESS and perhaps also to Singapore!
We start the new academic year with a special welcome to our new students and staff and also to our new Principal, Mr Swen Trinkler, his wife Janine, and his daughters Marie-Julie and Josefin who will be studying at GESS.
The Board and School Management continue to be committed to GESS’ mission of giving our students roots and wings: valuing our roots founded on German and European cultures, languages and traditions and aiming to provide each of our students with the best possible education, instilling a passion for Learning, Living and Giving and developing their skills to master their future. At the start of the new academic year, we ask all of our community to continue to work with us to deliver a high-quality educational programme for learning, living and giving in an excellent school environment. As well of course as having fun along the way.
One of the best ways to be involved and making your contribution is by becoming a member of our School Association (“German European School Singapore - Deutsche Europäische Schule Singapur”). The Association aims to maintain and enhance the interests of GESS within the Community, Singapore and abroad. For more information of the association, please go to our website.
We are looking forward to seeing all of those returning families and staff and to meeting the new parents, students and staff and introducing ourselves.
Until then, enjoy the beginning of term and the new academic year!
President of the Board of Governors
