At GIIS, we understand the needs of expatriate parents. That is why we offer flexibility of admission subject to availability of seats.
Admissions are open for new students all year long for academic sessions starting in April each year. The registration process opens from August the previous year, while the application reviewing process by our Admissions Team commences in January each year.
Plenty of special events are observed and celebrated in our school, which is an exercise in bonding and showcasing talent and excellence.
Our 9GEMS(TM) holistic learning framework also emphasises the need to organise age-appropriate events to allow students to explore inherent talents from sports excellence, to performing arts, to entrepreneurship and community service.
Events like Annual Day and Sports Day are held each year as showcase events for students to show their talent in sports related and co-curricular related activities.
Students from all four Houses participate in these activities, and go on to compete against each other for the highest award; which in turn builds their character, their sense of camaraderie and gives them a hunger to win for collective pride.
Special days are held in our pre-primary classes which aim to strengthen bonds between students and their extended families.
Parents often participate in classroom activities like story-telling sessions, class projects, drama lessons etc., while grandparents are also made part of the narrative through sessions like Grandparents' Day. Apart from this, our school uses parents' expertise in different sectors to spread awareness among students through talks and experience-sharing sessions.
In addition, parents also participate or volunteer their time to help the school through logistical support like technical setup for sound and lights, or as helping hands during school trips.
