The Sports Report: ACSIS Week 10
Posted 03/11/2017 02:38PM

Our GESS sports teams played a spectacular and immensely exciting ACSIS Season 1 Final’s Week. Congratulations to all athletes and coaches involved!

Football Girls U19 Football: Gold for GESS! Our 19U girls won Wednesday’s final against Canadian International School with a score of 3:0. We would like to say “well done!” to Coach Thomas Teichert and his team! Meanwhile, the 16U football boys topped off a spectacular performance in ACSIS’ top division. A nail-biting penalty shoot-out secured the win over Tanglin Trust School and, thus, bronze medals. The 19U boys, however, had a rough week. First, they were absolute unlucky in the semi-final, losing in penalties, and then they suffered a 0:2 defeat in their game for third place against United World College Dover. The 9U Finals all took place on Saturday. Results and photos will be published next week.

Badminton Boys 14U (30.10.17)Badminton: The 14U badminton boys delivered a really amazing performance during the semi-finals on Monday. 4 out of the 5 games were only conclusive in the third set. Eventually, our boys came through with 3 to 2 points against Chatsworth International School and faced Canadian International School in the finals. The girls team played well in their last season match and managed to overcome Tanglin Trust School with a score of 3:2. GESS finished in 5th place in this division.

Volleyball: The 16U girls team finished off Season 1 successfully and won against Australian International School in straight sets. This secured their 7th place in ACSIS Division 1.

Basketball: Our 19U boys team played their first friendly last week in order to prepare for the upcoming ACSIS Season 2. Coach Melvin was happy with what he saw, despite a close 63:71 loss against Prodigy Club.

Cross Country GESS StudentsCross Country: Last Thursday, the ACSIS Cross Country Championships were held at Bedok Reservoir. Our Junior School Campus (JSC) Running Club took part with all 48 runners and delivered great results across all age groups. The 10U girls team even won bronze medals. This year, GESS could also send a small but mighty team from Middle School. Anna-Lena Pestinger, Carla Schmid and Kjartan Rethfeldt represented GESS in the 3000m run in an exemplary fashion.

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.
