Reading Festival 2018
Posted 27/04/2018 04:07PM

Die „Reading Festival“-Woche hat an beiden Schulgeländen mit zwei Tagen Lesungen und Workshops mit dem Kinderbuchautor Boris Pfeiffer einen großartigen Start gehabt. Unsere Schüler waren fasziniert von Boris Peiffers spannenden und lustigen Anekdoten und begeisterte Zuhörer. Wir freuten uns über die vielen Lacher und den großen Applaus.
An der Grundschule fand das ‚Blind Date with a Book‘ so großen Anklang, dass bereits am ersten Tag fast alle vorbereiteten Bücher ausgeliehen waren und wir noch mal einen zweiten Schwung verpackt haben, sodass alle interessierten Kinder die Chance auf ein Blind Date hatten. Wir freuen uns auf das Feedback der Kinder zu den Büchern und hoffen, dass dieses Event eine Anregung für sie war, mal außerhalb ihrer üblichen Serien etwas Neues zu lesen.
Für unser ‚Book-a-Movie‘-Event am Hauptcampus verwandelte sich der Library Study Room während der Mittagspausen in einen Kinosaal. Die Schüler konnten sich bei bekannten Kinderbuch-Verfilmungen entspannen.
Am Donnerstag nahm die ganze Schule an der ‚Drop Everything And Read‘ (DEAR)-Aktion teil. Studien belegen, dass bereits mit 10 Minuten täglichem Lesen das Leseverständnis und die Sprachentwicklung dramatisch zunehmen. Nutzen Sie doch ‚DEAR‘ mit Ihren Kindern so oft es geht.
Den Abschluss unserer ereignisreichen Woche bildeten der ‚Book Character Dress Up Day‘ am Gelände der Vor- und Grundschule und der ‚Book Face Photo Booth‘ am Hauptcampus mit jeder Menge lustiger und bunter Fotos. Gehen Sie doch in unsere Fotogalerie und schauen sich diese und andere Highlights von der ganzen „Reading Festival“-Woche an.

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.
