In­ter­na­tional School (GIIS)

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Schools Mini Guide 2018 -

Both of our chil­dren have been at GIIS East Coast Cam­pus since the time we ar­rived here in 2013. The kids started off in Kinder­garten and have al­ways en­joyed go­ing to school. We’re very happy with the man­ner in which the school is run; the teach­ers have been won­der­ful, show­ing great at­ti­tude and ef­fort. The school also of­fers a lot of op­tions for the elec­tive CCAS. Over the years, Zreh has taken up Maths Club, Avi­a­tion Club and Ex­plorer Club, while Ava has been in­volved in Art & Craft, Bharat Natyam (In­dian dance) and Jew­elry Mak­ing. Zreh is also part of the school bas­ket­ball team and rep­re­sents the school in in­ter-school tour­na­ments. The school has great PE coaches who get the chil­dren to en­joy and learn a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties. We read about the school while re­search­ing on­line be­fore mov­ing to Sin­ga­pore. We were keen for our chil­dren to study the In­dian cur­ricu­lum, and GIIS was the best fit for us. Based on our ex­pe­ri­ence, we highly rec­om­mend the school to par­ents look­ing for a holis­tic de­vel­op­ment of their child. The school gives equal im­por­tance to val­ues (as­sem­blies with themes that highlight val­ues, Gand­hian stud­ies and more), sports and fit­ness along with aca­demics. The en­tire staff in­clud­ing the Prin­ci­pal and Vice Prin­ci­pal are al­ways ac­ces­si­ble. They en­cour­age us to ap­proach them if we have prob­lems or sug­ges­tions. We also re­ceive reg­u­lar feed­back about our chil­dren’s progress and up­dates about class­work. It has been a great ex­pe­ri­ence.

GIIS has 4 lo­ca­tions is­land-wide. sg.glob­alin­di­an­school.org
