The Sports Report: ACSIS Season 3 (#7)
Posted 18/05/2018 01:54PM

GESS Football GirlsFootball Girls: Gold for GESS! Our 12U team managed the impossible and defended last year’s title in the highest ACSIS league. Three amazing wins over Stamford, Tanglin Trust and Australian School clinched it last week. With a small and very young squad (five players even supporting from Junior School Campus), the odds were surely against Team GESS this year. Yet, the girls proved the skeptics wrong and won the league in outstanding fashion. According to Coach Guy, this is thanks to a remarkable team spirit and a positive attitude throughout the season. Massive congratulations to our young football girls - once again the best team in Singapore!

GESS Football BoysFootball Boys: Wow, what a season finale that was last Monday! Our 12U boys faced Nexus for the decisive match-up, with both teams on straight wins up to this point. A fascinating, fast-paced football game developed in which both teams missed multiple opportunities to seal the deal. Eventually, the teams drew 0:0, so that the final standings of the league now depend on the outcome of some late fixtures. In any case, congratulations to our GESS boys on a (nearly) perfect season in ACSIS Division 2!

GESS Basketball GirlsBasketball: Both 14U teams had great season performances, missing out on the medals by only a whisker. The girls had a fantastic last game in which they managed to overcome a strong team from the International Community School by 36:26 points. 4th place in their divisions for both teams, respectively.

GESS Track and FieldTrack & Field: On Saturday, 12 May, the Middle School ACSIS Championships took place at Singapore American School. It was a massive, well-organized meet with hundreds of students from international schools all over Singapore competing in running, jumping and throwing events. Nine highly dedicated GESS athletes took part as well and represented our school in great style. For the first time in many years, we even had a 14U girls’ 100m relay in the starting blocks. Great job, boys and girls!

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.
