This week, the team will have the great possibility to finish Season 2 with straight wins.

GESS Badminton Girls 11UBadminton: In the 11U girls’ inaugural season, our team has shown fantastic character and resilience, bouncing back from a heavy 0:5 defeat (against NPS) to win two games 4:1 (UWC) and 5:0 (Stamford). Yet, the icing on the cake (see photo) was certainly Tuesday's hard-fought victory against CIS (4:1) with one player, Ella Nasemann, fighting back to win from one set down. The girls finished in the runners-up spot in Division 2, taking home the silver medal. Way to go, girls! And the boys? Stay tuned for big news in next week’s GESS Weekly!

Great team spirit was the key for a 2:1 victory in this last game. The final ranking in Division 1 is still pending but it has certainly been a successful season, no matter what. Our girls’ team, in the meantime, will host UWC East this upcoming Thursday, 8 February (4:45 PM at GESS Sports Hall) for their bronze medal game. Come and support!

GESS Middle School Swim TeamSwimming: On 27 January, Maya Roepke, Julia Phan, Moritz Wagner and Niklas Karbaum represented GESS at the 2018 ACSIS Middle School Swim Championships. It was a perfectly sunny Saturday morning at Nexus International School with great swim competitions. Coach Teichert was very impressed with all our swimmers’ performance in this highly competitive event. Moritz and Maya even managed to win their respective heats (50m breaststroke and 50m butterfly) with new personal bests. Kudos to the entire GESS Swim Team!

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.
