School Reports Available on GESS (SEQTA) Engage
Posted 19/06/2020 12:58PM

As announced in last week’s email, this year’s school reports will be available for parents to download via GESS Engage from 25 June 2020, 2pm onwards. GESS Engage is a powerful platform that allows GESS to communicate directly with parents to share information about the student and about the school safely and securely. If parents have not yet received an email regarding their account creation for GESS Engage or have any problems creating their account, they can contact engage.support@gess.sg. Support will be available during business hours.

What is GESS Engage used for?

For the initial launch in June, parents will be able to view the following:
• European Section ISA (International Schools Assessments) reports for grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10
• All GESS Semester 2 student reports

As this is a new platform, GESS will also provide the following alternative delivery systems:
• German Section students still will receive their printed report on their last day of school.
• European Section Secondary will upload reports to Managebac.
• Preschool and European Section Primary will email reports to parents in the event that they cannot access GESS Engage.

Additional features will be rolled out on GESS Engage from August onwards and we look forward to sharing details soon. Stay tuned!

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.
