Tag des Baumes
Posted 04/05/2018 10:10AM

Tag des BaumesIm Zuge der GESS Initiative, eine verantwortungsvollere und umweltfreundlichere Schule zu werden, wurde letzte Woche am Gelände der Vor- und Grundschule im Rahmen des Kunstunterrichts bei Focke Wurster, der Tag des Baumes gewürdigt. Dieser Tag soll uns daran erinnern, wie wichtig es ist, den wertvollen Baumbestand und somit auch das Klima in der Welt zu erhalten.
Unter seiner Leitung haben die Schüler des Kindergartens und der Vor- und Grundschule in seinem Kunstunterricht Bilder von Bäumen gemalt und in seiner Kunst und Werken CCA wurde sogar ein Baum angefertigt. All die fertigen Bäume wurden am Ende symbolisch gepflanzt. Darüber hinaus werden wir einen neuen Freundschaftsbaum an unserem neuen Dairy Farm Campus pflanzen. Vielen Dank an die Schüler für ihre tolle Arbeit und an Roman Weiss für seine Mitarbeit.

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.
