Football: Both of our 12U teams had a successful start into Season 3. The boys are leading in Division 2 after two convincing victories against St. Joseph’s (6:0) and Swiss School (5:1). The girls - reigning Volkswagen Cup champions - are playing as a combined team from both campuses this season. The first Division 1 game over NPS ended in a superb 3:0 win for “GESS United”.
Basketball: One single point was missing! Our 14U girls’ team lost their season opening game against Dover Court by only one point. Better luck next time! The 14U boys, alike, suffered an unfortunate 20:24 defeat against UWC East. Our 19U boys, meanwhile, won a friendly game against Prodigy Club.
Badminton: For the first time ever, GESS is sending a 16U girls team to the ACSIS badminton competition. The team, under the guidance of Coach Melanie Simon, fought well but eventually lost both of their first two matches in an unfortunate fashion (1:4 against NPS and 2:3 against Tanglin Trust). The 19U boys’ team faced UWC East, one of the Division’s gold medal contenders, in their first match and lost with a score of 1:4.
Squash: On 14 February, our Squash CCA students had a surprise visit from no other than Vivian Rahmanan. Mr. Rahmanan is Singapore’s top-ranked squash player and #220 on the PSA world squash rankings. He took over the practice that day and shared his extensive squash knowledge with our GESS students. Thanks a lot, Coach Vivian!
