Kits4Kids Project 2016
Posted 06/05/2016 04:24PM

We did it! We surpassed our collection target of 250 school bags, and then some! Through your generous support, we handed over 300 school bags for the Kits4Kids project. Bravo GESS! Captain Shane and Meggie from the Vega were overjoyed to receive these marvelous gifts.

In addition, we presented Shane and Meggie with a “big cheque” representing SGD 7836.17 raised through the Grades 3 to 5 Sports Day run-a-thon and Casual Day collections.

Thank you very much for your generous donations and support for this important project! These schoolbags and the personal letters from your children will bring joy to the children on remote Indonesian islands and provide them with the essential materials for school.

Captain Shane and Meggie warmly invite you and your children on Saturday, May 14th, between 10:00 and 16:00 on the "Vega", currently docked in Keppel Bay Marina. It’s worth the trip to step aboard this 120-year-old sailing ship, and learn more about the humanitarian work of Shane and Meggie straight from the source. You may even be inspired to make more donations for their worthy causes.

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.
