Here’s how you can get the full scoop on GESS’s amazing new Dairy Farm Road campus
GESS is set to open its new campus on Dairy Farm Road in August 2018 and you’re invited to their Open House for all the latest deets, mama!
With Bukit Timah Nature Reserve at its doorstep, GESS students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 will finally be housed under one [eco-friendly] roof! They’ll also be surrounded by greenery in the stimulating natural environment. The campus design is so eco-friendly that it has achieved the stringent Green Mark Gold Plus standard – which is a no-brainer, since Germany is the country that recycles more waste than any other country in the world after all!
Modern, state-of-the-art facilities
The campus will have a bevy of incredible facilities, from creative spaces to several sports amenities for students to maximise their talents.
Students’ fresh ideas will be given a space for exploration with the Design and Technology Center and Maker Space, while students with a knack for the performing arts can look forward to a black box theatre, recording studios, Vocal and Instrumental Programme center, and a spacious 400-seater auditorium.
Got a sporty kiddo? Young athletes are encouraged to take their training to new heights with the fully equipped gyms, sports complex (with an Olympic-sized swimming pool!) and indoor sports hall.
If that’s not enough, future Master Chefs and Picassos are catered to as well with a cooking lab and visual arts studios.
Encouraging a strong sense of community
While GESS aims to grow the school population up to 2,000 new students, they’re ensuring the sense of community doesn’t get lost in the large space by placing students in age-specific learning pods. This will be an additional feature to promote collaborative learning and create social cohesion among students within the same age-range (e.g. primary school, secondary school, high school).
In line with the school’s outstanding emphasis on languages, there will also be language clusters, which are classrooms designated for the instruction of various languages clustered together.
Want to know more, mama? RSVP to the GESS Open House happening on 15 March for the full scoop on the campus! The event will be held at the GESS Main Campus and Junior School Campus, where there will also be info on curricular offerings (English IB Programme and German Curriculum), a chance to join a school tour, and mingle with other parents and students.
