The Sport Report: ACSIS Week 3
Posted 15/09/2017 02:42PM

ACSIS Week 3 of Season 1 was eventful for our school athletes. Our GESS volleyball, football and badminton teams faced their opponents from other international schools in Singapore and represented GESS in great fashion.

u19 Volleyball BoysOur volleyball 16U girls entered the competition in Division 1, but faced an unfortunate defeat against a strong team from Australian International School. 22:25; 25:21; 20:25; 16:25 was the final score of this high-class volleyball game. The 19U girls, too, encountered a tough opponent on Monday, fought well, but also lost in 1 to 3 sets against the Japanese Waseda Shibuya School. On the other hand, the 19U boys put up an astounding performance and wrestled down Singapore American School in five long and nail-biting sets: 3:2 for GESS!

u19 Football BoysThe football 16U boys had to play two away games last week and managed to win both, continuing their outstanding performance in ACSIS’ top league so far. A close but well-deserved 3:2 victory over Canadian International School was followed by an impressive 4:2 win against St. Joseph’s Institute International. Way to go, boys! Meanwhile, our 19U boys struggled in the first half against Waseda Shibuya on Tuesday and eventually lost 1:2.

u14 Badminton GirlsIn the case of badminton, many of our 14U girls took part in their first competitive match on Wednesday, and that after only one practice session so far. Yet, the girls showed no sign of fear or nervousness in a close match against Chatsworth International School. They started well by winning the first two singles but eventually got defeated in the third single and both doubles. The 14U boys, on the other hand, had their first match on Friday and celebrated a convincing 5:0 debut win over Nexus International School.

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.
