The Sports Report: ACSIS Season 2, Week 12
Posted 25/01/2018 04:44PM

GESS Football Boys U14Football: It has been a tough week for all outdoor sports fans. Three of our football games had to be cancelled as lightning alarms went off all over Singapore. Only the boys teams were blessed with good weather and could finish their games. Team A secured an important 4:2 away win against UWC Dover and remains in the run for medals. Meanwhile, Team B’s two goals were not enough to overcome a strong Global Indian School team.

GESS Volleyball Boys U14Volleyball: Our sports hall hosted a great volleyball spectacle last Thursday. Both 14U GESS teams celebrated remarkable victories over the boys and girls from UWC East: 2:0 and 2:0 for GESS!

GESS Basketball Boys U14Basketball: Almost throughout the entire game our 19U boys were leading in the decisive match-up against Waseda Shibuya School. But with only ten seconds to go on the clock, WSS turned the tables and secured a 30:28 victory. Following another close-fought match against championship contender Nexus and a well-fought but unlucky performance of our 16U boys against Dover Court, this has not been a good basketball week for GESS. Better luck next week!

GESS Table Tennis CCATable Tennis: Paul Klingenberg-Timm has won the internal GESS CCA Championships, prevailing in a tough four-sets final against Jannik Dierssen. Frederik Barth came in second runner up. 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.
