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.

Extra-Curricular and Co-Curricular Activities

Activities outside the curricula which helps in the physical and emotional development of students

Introduction

A core component of holistic education is the Extra-Curricular and Co-Curricular activities that shape the development of students. They are instrumental in honing the talents and developing social skills, critical thinking and teamwork.

Our school has an array of ECA and CCA activities for the benefit of our students. It is mandatory for our students to participate in at least one activity under both categories.

To instil a sense of belonging, camaraderie and brotherhood among students, many of these activities are held by grouping students into four Houses which encourages healthy competition, a hunger for winning and pride in accomplishments.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Extra-curricular activities are those activities, often sports-based, that take place outside of the GIIS classroom, helping students develop their personalities and physical aptitude, which is a crucial part of our Nine Gems programme.
Students who show particular talent in these extracurricular activities may participate in the Gold Squad Programme, which provides additional, intensive training under skilled coaches.

Trained coaches and instructors ensure that your child is well instructed in a host of extra-curricular activities (ECAs) at no extra cost. There are a wide range of sports activities to choose from:

Soccer

Junior Athletics

Table tennis

Basketball

Karate

Co-Curricular Activities

Co-curricular activities take what students are learning in the classroom and builds upon that through talent shows, performances, competitions, clubs and additional classroom work.

These clubs and activities encourage our students to delve deeper into activities and subject areas that they are passionate about. Across all the innovation, extra-curricular, or co-curricular activities, our primary goal is to incite passion and provide a fun way for students to discover and embrace the spirit of relentless learning, inside as well as outside the classroom, so they can identify with different interests, passions and personalities.
