The Sports Report: ACSIS Season 2, Week 4
Posted 08/12/2017 01:27PM

Football: Our 14U girls, team B has consistently displayed a great attitude. In spite of being outnumbered due to a number of team members suffering from injuries, they played against Chatsworth and fought hard but eventually lost with a score of 0:2. For the subsequent game against ‘Tanglin Trust School’ player Kim Schakowski returned to the squad and, with exactly nine players, the girls earned a much-deserved 2:0 victory. Meanwhile, our boys’ team B had a tough match against the strong Stamford American International School and lost 1:6.

Basketball: Our 12U boys could not have started their journey in the ACSIS competition any stronger. They played their first three games last week and won them all in an absolutely impressive fashion. Great job, boys! Meanwhile, the 19U team suffered their first defeat, with a score of 36:53 against St. Joseph’s, after two wins in a row.

Staff vs students volleyballVolleyball: This year’s ‘Staff vs. Students’ volleyball tournament was a great success. Two staff and four student teams faced off in an epic battle for the crown and spent a competitive but enjoyable Tuesday afternoon in the sports hall. In a surprising turn of events, Coach Heidi’s staff team, which had previously struggled in the first couple of games, came through victoriously. Kudos to her team as well as all GESS staff and students involved in this event! In other news, our 14U girls and Coach Stefan Hessler have made their debut in ACSIS Division 1. The team fought well but eventually lost in 1:2 sets against Singapore American School.

U11 Boys Badminton GESSBadminton: The 11U boys kicked off the new season with a 5:0 win over UWC East. A truly triumphant performance without dropping a single set!  On top of the win, Mr. Pocks was most impressed by the boys’ attitude and sportsmanship. Well done boys!

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.
