The Sports Report: ACSIS Season 3 (#1)
Posted 16/03/2018 02:35PM

GESS Football Boys 12U vs. SJII (06 March 2018) 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”.

GESS Basketball Girls 14U vs. DCIS (05 Mar 2018)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.

GESS Badminton Girls 16U vs. NPS (08 Mar 2018)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.

SquashSquash: 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!

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.
