The Sports Report: ACSIS Week 9

Our GESS school teams completed the regular ACSIS Season 1 successfully and are now heading into the play-offs (see “Upcoming Sport Events”).

Football: The GESS 19U girls team was relentless in the final regular season game and defeated Chatsworth International School with an astounding 8 to 1 goals. They are now fully focused on their gold medal match against Canadian International School on Wednesday (1 November, 2017). Likewise, both our 16U and 19U boys teams are also preparing for the play-off games. With no more league games last week, they instead played friendlies against our Korean neighbors from Singapore Korean International School.

Badminton Boys 14U (04-10-26)Badminton: Monday was a big badminton day at GESS. The traditionally strong racket sport school Yuvabharathi International challenged us in two exciting and highly contested matches. Both 14U teams played side by side and supported each other well. Eventually, our girls team was defeated while our boys team celebrated a win. They will be going against Chatsworth International School during the upcoming semi-finals on Monday.

Junior School Campus Cross Country TeamCross Country: On Wednesday, the Junior School Cross Country team attended an invitational run held at MacRitchie Reservoir. There were 45 boys and girls representing GESS with a large parental following too. We had some fantastic results – Elizabeth Perry (9U girls) in 5th place, Sarah Facino (12U girls) in 3rd place, Kaelen Dekan (12U boys) in 3rd place and Niklas Grapow (9U boys) in 2nd place. Our young athletes are now eagerly anticipating the ACSIS Cross Country Championships next Thursday.

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.
