Welcome & CCA Fair 2018/19
Posted 21/06/2018 09:30AM

All families of GESS are cordially invited to visit our Welcome and CCA Fair on Saturday, 18 August from 1pm - 3.30pm at the Foyer (in front of Sports Hall). The Welcome Fair is a yearly event organised by the Buddies’ Committee, where you can learn about life in Singapore, visit booths hosted by local social and sports clubs, healthcare providers, grocery stores and religious services. The fair is also a great platform for buddies to arrange a meeting with the new families in their term!

The CCA Fair provides a great opportunity to find out about CCA offerings and to meet our instructors and coaches. We offer a wide variety of more than 90 activities for all ages, from Kindergarten to Grade 12 students. Between 12pm and 1pm, Primary School students interested in joining a swimming CCA are required to participate in a trial placement swim in the swimming pool. Pre-Primary and Primary School parents will also be able to get more information regarding our Language Enrichment Programme (LEP). And parents interested in the Vocal & Instrumental Programme (VIP) can sign up their children for a 15-minute “try-an-instrument” lesson with our qualified tutors between 11am to 4pm.

Do join us at the CCA and Welcome Fair, and help our Grade 10 students raise funds for their social projects in Cambodia and India by visiting their food and beverage stands. There will also be an organised campus tour during the fair. Don’t miss all the fun!

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.
