This week, the oral Abitur exams took place in the German Section. The exams were very well prepared and I am glad that our students performed great and some even excellently. Mrs Bauni talked very positively about the preparation, execution and the high level at which the exams were conducted and will report her experience to the office in Germany.
Besides the usual lessons, many additional events took place during the past days and weeks, which were attended by many of you. Thank you very much to all participants and teachers as well as staff members who were involved in the following events:
- GESS Summer Concert
- European Union Film Festival (EUFF)
- Culture Festival “Sama Sama” in Kuala Lumpur
- Swim Gala
- Lecture about Günter Grass' novel, “Crabwalk”
Especially at the end of the year, there are many invitations to events. Our students prepared for those events for months and are very much looking forward to showing their parents and teachers what they learned. Please attend some of the events, even though your child might not be involved. Our students would be very happy with having many people in the audience.
On Saturday, 2 June will be the GESS International Summer Party at the Junior School Campus. Do not miss the chance to enjoy this event highlight for the last time on this campus.
On 29 May most of our teachers will be on campus for a PD Day, while you enjoy the public holiday. On 30 May, we will be back to a normal school day again and in the evening will be the cabaret event “Two are also a good trio” in the IES Hall. If you spontaneously decide to come, please send an email to email@example.com.
As you know, we will start with the Junior Engineer Academy in August 2018 for our students in Grade 7 and 8. We have previously informed you about this programme in the GESS Weekly and sent the application form to everyone who earlier expressed their interest. Those parents will be invited for an information event so that we can start with the cross-sectional course in August.
I wish you a good week and a nice public holiday on Tuesday.
