Posted 11/04/2018 01:00PM

Reading Festival 2018 PosterHerzlich willkommen zurück! Wir hoffen Sie hatten erholsame und schöne Ferien. Wir freuen uns schon auf die mit vielen Aktivitäten gefüllte Woche unseres Reading Festivals vom 23. - 27. April 2018. Wie schon vor den Ferien angekündigt wird uns der beliebte „Drei ??? Kids“-Autor Boris Pfeiffer an beiden Schulgeländen besuchen – und dies ist nur eins der Höhepunkte des Festivals. Hier eine Übersicht weiterer Veranstaltungen, die wir anbieten:

  • Bücherbezogene Quizze auf dem iPad, wo Ihre Kinder Ihr Bibliothekswissen testen können.
  • Bücher-Wunsch-Wand – Ihre Kinder können neue Bücher für unsere Bibliothek vorschlagen.
  • Das „Drop Everything And Read“ (DEAR)-Event – von 10:00 - 10:10 Uhr am Donnerstag, den 26. April – die ganze Schule nimmt ein Buch zur Hand, um 10 Minuten zu lesen.
  • Kurzgeschichten-Schreibwettbewerb am Hauptcampus – das diesjährige Thema „Schlechte Entscheidungen machen gute Geschichten“. Es gibt tolle Preise zu gewinnen! Die angehenden Schriftsteller können bis zum 25. Mai ihre Geschichten einreichen (300 Wörter), die Gewinner werden am 22. Juni bekannt gegeben.

Zum Abschluss der „Reading Festival“-Woche darf das beliebte „Book Face Photo Booth“ am Hauptcampus und der „Book Character Dress-up Day“ am Vor- und Grundschulgelände am Freitag, den 27. April natürlich nicht fehlen. Wir freuen uns schon auf die lustigen Fotos und die farbenfrohen und kreativen Kostüme.

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.
