GESS Fund's Mission and Vision



Supporting GESS's Mission:

Deepening Roots & widening Wings through Philanthropy

The GESS Fund is the fundraising arm of GESS. It is operational since 2014 and its purpose is to raise funds from individuals and corporates for the sole benefit of the School.

While tuition fees finance the day-to-day operations and administrative costs of the school, donations from corporates, alumni, parents and staff can provide for extra equipment, better technology and innovative co-curricular programs for students and staff which will enhance the students’ experience on top of the already very good-quality education, transforming them into true global citizens. From student enhancement projects to help our students to grow as individuals, live their passions, experience new things and empower them with transferable skills to long term projects that will help to deliver a new campus equipped with state of the art technology and facilities (a new cooking Lab, an enhanced Design & Technology Studio,..).

100% of the donations go straight to the cause.

To achieve these goals and to keep GESS at the pinnacle of international education in Singapore, the GESS Fund relies entirely on donations – philanthropic support from our community is crucial!



"Furthering the Culture of Giving to benefit GESS and its Community."

Our dream for GESS and our vision for the GESS Fund is that one day, fundraising at our school will be so well established that it is part of who we are and what we do.

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.
