* Kindly note that this news covers the events that took place the week before last week.

Football U9 boysFootball: On Saturday, 4 November, our Junior School teams were out in full force as they participated in four different tournaments across the island. It proved to be an eventful morning with our 9U boys team finishing in 6th place in Division 1, our second 9U boys team winning a bronze medal in Division 4, and the 9U girls even clinching silver medals in Division 1. GESS was the proud host of the Division 4 tournament, which was well-organized and an overall success that invited very positive feedback from the schools, parents and students who attended. In addition to the ACSIS competitions, our 10U boys participated in this year’s SingaCup tournament, where they faced teams from around Asia. The boys competed well and finished 4th in a strong group. We would like to congratulate all our participants on making a great football weekend possible!

Badminton: What a match that was on Friday, 3 November! GESS hosted Canadian International School for the gold medal finals in the 14U boys age group and our sports hall went wild in a dramatic turn of events. After winning the first single and the first double, CIS quickly took the lead by two points. But GESS was not willing to give up just as yet and scored in the following two single games. The second double was to decide the entire match and turned out to be a thrilling three-set encounter that keept the entire crowd on its toes. Eventually, CIS won by the lowest possible margin and secured the gold. Yet, our GESS boys showed an exemplary fighting spirit and are proud to have finished an outstanding season with silver medals. 

GESS Staff vs. Students BasketballBasketball: Our 11U boys team won gold in Division 4’s junior tournament. Coach Greg Haines and his boys received the well-deserved medals at Dulwich College with great pride. Meanwhile, our staff team that took on the GESS 16U boys in a friendly match on Wednesday, 1 November was out of luck and had a smashing 39:56 loss. That being said, the team around point guard Luigie Sababan competed surprisingly well and even managed to keep the scores close for three quarters. The 2017 Staff vs. Students basketball game was good fun for all participants and a great event that definitely calls to be repeated.

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.
