Reminder: International Summer Party @ GESS – Calling For Different Nationalities
Posted 19/02/2019 11:00AM

We are excited to announce that the International Summer Party @ GESS will be held on 1 June 2019. Like every year we would like people of all different nationalities from our school community to be represented and for them to get to know the other nationalities better. That is why we are looking for parents/teachers/friends who are interested in setting up a Nations Stall to showcase their home countries.

How can you help us?

Do you have ideas about how to best showcase your home country? You could set up a stall and present something to eat/drink or even demonstrate typical sports, games and activities. It could be something like Paella from Spain, Hugo from Austria or Origami from Japan. We would love to hear your ideas! The Events Team will be there to advise you on how best to execute your ideas.

If you are interested, please write an email as soon as possible to or use the following form:


You can register alone or as a group. We will organise a meeting whereby we will try to group all people from one nation together and gather suggestions. We are looking forward to a great response and many interesting thoughts and ideas. Together, we can make it an unforgettable and successful first Summer Party on our new campus!

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.
