Have you lost something on the Junior School Campus?
Posted 27/10/2017 04:19PM

Over the last few weeks many things have found their way to the Lost and Found storeroom. Unfortunately, many of these items are unlabelled. Any regular items such as school uniforms, sports bags, goggles, lunchboxes, and drink bottles found around our Junior School Campus premises will be left in the Lost and Found storeroom located opposite the library. Valuables such as jewellery, wallets, reading glasses, purses, keys, handphones, electronic devices, etc. are with the front desk for safekeeping. If an item has any identifying information e.g. student ID, books or notebooks with names written on them the front desk officer will attempt to contact the owner. We will be clearing the Lost and Found room at the Junior School Campus at regular intervals and the dates are as follows:


30 November, 2017
13 December, 2017 – before the Christmas Holidays
28 February. 2018
23 March, 2018 – before the Easter Holidays
27 April, 2018
31 May, 2018
22 June, 2018 – before the Summer Holidays


If you are missing anything, please visit our Lost and Found. After the above-mentioned dates, all unclaimed items will either be donated to charity or disposed of, if not suitable for charity. Valuable items such as jewellery, wallets, reading glasses, keys, hand phones, etc. will be kept at the Front Desk for one school year. We kindly request all parents to label all items so that owners can be identified easily.

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.
