Bringing German precision and European excellence to this school in Singapore.
One of the joys of being a parent is watching your child develop and grow to his or her true potential. We have all felt that burst of pride watching our little ones waddle onto the stage to receive a certificate and years later, to stride confidently to pick up a well-deserved trophy. If you are about to move to Singapore and your biggest worry is finding a school that will keep nurturing your children’s talents, look at what German European School Singapore (GESS) has to offer.
GESS is an IB International School in the Lion City that caters to pupils from pre-school to high school. The school recently launched a Centre for Excellence to support talented, high-potential students. The staff here has received professional training on how to mentor and stretch the minds of these children. GESS has been accepted into the European Talent Support Network (ETSN has 25 talent centres worldwide and almost 400 Talent Points from 44 countries all around the world) and is also the only school outside Europe to offer the Junior Engineer Academy Programme.
If you haven’t been able to pinpoint where your child’s skills lie, don’t worry. At GESS, there is periodic screening to identify high-potential and talented students. Teachers assign differentiated tasks and where suitable, students can also study subjects at higher levels, be paired with strength-oriented mentors and participate in the school’s many programmes and collaborations with university and industry-level partners. The school also makes it a point to work with parents. From counselling and consulting services to information sessions with national and international experts, GESS provides parents with all the required resources to nurture their young Einsteins (or Mozarts, Muhammed Alis, Marlowes as the case may be!).
The school focuses on those collaborations that will allow its students to get early exposure to industry, university and corporate experts. The aim is to help students become outstanding and exceptional in their areas of talent, especially in the fields of science, engineering, technology, arts, sports and more. As the children grow and move to university and vocational education, GESS hopes to have given them a head start and to have paved the way for a brighter future in the jobs market. It is conducting Industry Talks in partnership with Danfoss, TUM Asia, Volocopter and more with this in mind.
