We Taught, Inspired, Motivated and Educated (TIME)!
We are excited to have had over 350 eager participants from both Private and Public sectors with us at this year’s conference. Now more than ever, we are committed to providing opportunities for Educators to come together to develop new perspectives and useful skills through collaboration.
As a bonafide International School, our number one Strategic Goal is to be recognized as a centre for Instructional Excellence.
To achieve this, we solidify our Teacher Professional Development Program(s) every year and open our doors to those interested in partnering with us to be great educators.
Today, we at GIS celebrate the life of Former UN Secretary-General and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Kofi Annan.

Congratulations to Mrs. Zenabu Akotoh, a seasoned teacher from our PE and Sports Department for coming up with a simple, life-saving technique for lifeguards to prevent drowning.
The simple technique uses plastic gallons and bottles to keep one afloat in water when rescue equipment is not readily available or is too costly.
Summer break is great because it allows one to relax, revitalize and explore a whole new world away from the norm. Ohemaa Aseda Kyei-Mensah, a year 6 pupil at GIS decided to embark on a reading campaign in collaboration with the Management of Westhills Mall during her summer break. Equipped with leadership skills, and encouraged to be socially responsible citizens at school, taking on this role was a natural step!
During the summer holidays, Nana Afia Addae, a Form 5 Student of GIS was declared the overall winner of an essay competition dubbed “What’s Your Thing?”.
The competition, supported by Stanbic Bank, Ghana, was organized as part of a Ghana/China Cultural Exchange Programme under the auspices of both the John Agyekum Kuffour and Rebecca Akufo-Addo Foundations.
The maiden edition of GIS’ Summer Day-Camp 2018 started on Monday, 9th July. The Programme is scheduled to run until the Friday, 20th of July 2018. It’s been fun and exciting so far. Here are some highlights!
At GIS, we encourage our Alumni to stay connected, give back and enjoy being part of the GIS Community! It was indeed an awesome day as old Students of GIS visited the Principal of Ghana International School, Dr Mary Apea Ashun at her residence in Canada. #ConnectingMoments
Congratulations GIS! We did it again! After years, months and weeks of working towards Re-accreditation, we at Ghana International School are so proud to announce that, we have been accredited for the second time!
In April 2018, we were honoured to have a team from the Council of International Schools (CIS) and The New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) inspect and assess us.
The Accreditation Team members were from countries around the world such as France, Italy, United States, United Kingdom, Panama, Belgium, South Africa, Nigeria and Canada just to mention a few. They came in with a common goal which was to find out if our institution meets or exceeds global standards of quality. So, after a week of a rigorous process, it was concluded by both the CIS and NEASC that GIS demonstrated a commitment to continuous improvement and we are a “…dynamic and inspiring School…”
Hurray! Well Done GIS! We would like to say, a special thank you to our Board Members, Management Team, Teachers, Staff, Students and Parents who all helped in making our achievement a success! We Rock!!!
