The Sports Report: ACSIS Season 3 (#3)
Posted 13/04/2018 04:06PM

GESS FootballFootball: It was a tough match-up for our 12U football boys last Tuesday. They faced Canadian International School in what was arguably one of the highlight games of this season. CIS is the reigning Volkswagen Cup champ of this age group but this time our boys obtained the upper hand and celebrated a well-deserved 4:2 away win. Great job, boys!

GESS Table TennisTable Tennis: Our table tennis CCA team received a hearty welcome when they visited Shuqun Secondary School for a friendly match last week. The GESS boys competed well and a close-fought match over three rounds gained momentum quickly. The score was even at 2:2 after the first two rounds, and the final double game went to a nail-biting decider set that eventually ended 16:14 for Shuqun. A big “Thank You!” goes out to Shuqun School for inviting us to this wonderful, exceptionally well-organised event.

GESS TeakwondoTaekwondo: On Tuesday, five GESS students competed at the 2018 National School Games Taekwondo Championships. Kristina Terekhova, Maxim Terekhov, Maximilian Beinert, Sophie Gams and Enfei Zhang represented our school in exemplary fashion, with Max and Enfei even winning gold medals in their competitions. Master Kim was tremendously proud of all his taekwondo students and their outstanding achievements.

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.
