The Sports Report: ACSIS Season 3 (#6)
Posted 11/05/2018 11:29AM

GESS Football BoysFootball: Our 12U girls have a tough season finale schedule with five fixtures in only a few days. Last week, they lost a difficult match-up against Singapore American School (2:4 after a 2:0 lead), but came back in strong fashion the day after and celebrated a 6:0 victory over Dover Court. Meanwhile, the boys just keep winning and have a 7 out of 7 streak after beating UWC East (3:1) and Australian School (2:0). Make sure to support the team at their gold medal match on Monday, 14 May, against Nexus (4:45pm at Swiss Club Pitch)!

GESS Basketball GirlsBasketball: Both 14U teams are performing amazingly well this season but keep missing that extra bit of luck. The 14U girls‘ team had a strong away win at UWC Dover but lost a few days later in overtime against Tanglin Trust School. The boys kept the upper hand against Stamford but then suffered two defeats against Canadian International School and Anglo-Chinese School.

GESS Track and FieldTrack & Field: GESS sent a strong squad of 39 junior athletes to take part in the ACSIS Junior School Championships at St. Joseph’s, and all of them gave their very best and represented the school with outstanding commitment and pride. Coach Hutchins and Coach Leighton were delighted by the convincing performances of our young athletics students. Most notably, Maya Pracht took home the 200m gold medal by setting a new ACSIS record for her age group. She grabbed another gold over 80m and our 10U girls’ sprint relay team also came in first place. Team GESS finished in 6th place overall which is a remarkable result in a highly competitive field.

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.
