The Sports Report: ACSIS Season 3 (#4)
Posted 19/04/2018 05:06PM

GESS Basketball BoysBasketball: Our GESS 14U boys were on fire as they went against the Global Indian School for their second season game. After four quarters of high-speed basketball, the scoreboard displayed 43 to 13 points for GESS. Well done, boys!

GESS Football GirlsFootball: It has been a truly successful football season for GESS so far, with both 12U teams keeping hot winning streaks alive. The girls earned a superb 3:0 home win against UWC Dover in which they defended well and pulled off a tactical masterstroke. Both Aspmair sisters managed to put down their names on the scorers’ list. Meanwhile, the boys’ team was not any less impressive, winning their away game at Tanglin Trust School with a score of 4:1. In an off-season event, the 14U girls took part in the inaugural Unity Football League tournament which was organised to promote girls’ football in Singapore.

GESS Badminton GirlsBadminton: Without a doubt, it was a tough week for the 16U girls’ team. The badminton ladies suffered two incredibly close losses against Global Indian School and Anglo-Chinese School. Coach Melanie was, nonetheless, quite proud of her players’ performances, emphasising that this is the first ever competitive season for some of them. Better luck this week!

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.
