The Sports Report: ACSIS Week 6
Posted 06/10/2017 09:58AM

Our school teams were once again out and about last week, competing against a variety of schools with great success.

Football: The 9U boys’ team won all three games at our Junior School Campus (JSC) home tournament with scores of 4:1 against Tanglin Trust School, 6:2 against Swiss School and another 6:2 victory against International Community School. The girls were victorious in their first game against United World College (3:0) but a strong Tanglin team beat them with a score of 3:1.


Volleyball Girls 19U (04-10-17)Volleyball: The first medal for GESS this year! Our 19U girls won both their remaining season games last week and secured bronze medals in Division 2. Congratulations girls for an outstanding performance in this short but intense and highly competitive season! Meanwhile, our 19U boys’ team defeated UWC East in four strong sets and secured their second win this season.

Badminton Boys 14U (04-10-17)Badminton: The 14U teams were a bit short-numbered last week with some of the players being away on class trips. Nonetheless, both teams represented our school in an exemplary manner and with a relentless fighting spirit. The boys even managed to overcome Tanglin in a tough and long match that ended with a score of 3:2 for GESS.

Cross Country Running: On Wednesday, the Primary School sent a Cross Country team to the UWCSEA Invitational at Bedok Reservoir. 35 GESS students competed in the races with great success. Olivia Emmett finished in 3rd place, Ellie Perry in 4th place and Kaelen Dekan came in 7th. Many of our other students were ranked within the Top 20 - a fantastic achievement considering the large group of young athletes who participated.

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.
