Summer Party – A Big Thank You!
Posted 14/06/2019 11:15AM

The Events Team would like to give a big “Thank you“ to everybody who helped us with the Summer Party: Jack Dubiel, Grade 5 and 7 Wind Classes, and the bands for the entertaining program, the various Nations for the organisation of their wonderful stalls, the students for helping us during the event and the following teams from GESS for the fantastic work behind the scenes: Facilities, Security, Maintenance, Logistics, Finance, Marketing and the Events Manager, Haja Maricar. Thanks a lot to Monika Bertuleit and Sarah Seitz for being MC of the event. Of course, a big “Thank you“  goes to all the volunteers who served us all with great enthusiasm with drinks and food throughout the Summer Party. It is only with the help of the school community that it is possible to hold such a big wonderful and successful event. We are particularly pleased with the proceeds of approximately 11,000 SGD, which will benefit a special project to be named at the new school campus. We wish all of you a nice summer holiday and the families who are leaving Singapore, a good start elsewhere!

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.
