The Sports Report: ACSIS Season 2, Week 2
Posted 24/11/2017 04:25PM

Football Boys U14 GESSFootball: No doubt it’s rainy season in Singapore and consequently some of last week’s football games had to be postponed when the lightning alarm went off. Our 14U boys in Division 2 could only play one half against St. Joseph’s but the 4:2 halftime score stands and will count. Meanwhile, our Team B in Division 3 faced a very strong opponent from Singapore American School and also our girls’ Team A got defeated in their season opening game (3:4 against United World College).

Basketball Boys U16 GESSBasketball: Rainy season? Well, it rained three-pointers in our sports hall last Monday, when our 19U boys played against Chatsworth. After a nervous start, our boys readjusted from Downtown Land and flew off to a 53:22 victory. The season debut of the 16U boys was less successful. The young GESS team fought well but could eventually not overcome the much taller opponents from Global Indian School.

Badminton Girls U11 GESSBadminton: The 11U girls’ team got off to a flying start with a hard-fought 4:1 victory over United World College East. This is the girls' inaugural season in the ACSIS league and Coach Mark Pocklington was very proud of their performance and the fantastic achievement. He praise them for their never-say-die attitude, especially when coming back in one doubles match from one set down. Well done, girls!

Volleyball: Our 14U boys lost a tough but close match-up against the Canadian International School with 1:2 sets.

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.
