Today is World Book Day and to celebrate the day, our Junior School pupils along with the Library staff, dressed up in their favorite book character costume and engaged each other in the Virtual Learning Environment.
We made it through our first week, staggering our pupils gradually onto the Primary School Campus under strict safety protocols and supervision. A big thank you to our Infant and Junior School VPs, Teachers, Administrators, Security Staff, Parents and everyone for working together as a team to make this happen. Well done!

Pupils all geared up and ready to learn and enjoy a safe learning environment.
A year ago today, the GIS Campus was shut down due to the pandemic but here we are; resilient and pressing on. We continue to seek a balanced approach to safe and efficient school reopening such as staggered entry, fewer cohorts on campus, and options given to students to study from home when instruction is scheduled. It is our hope that these measures will go a long way towards decreasing the obvious complexity of the current situation in which we all find ourselves.
Our Infant School recently celebrated Rare Diseases Day in a different way this year.
In the past, the entire Infant School community would come out together dressed in white tops, a pair of blue jeans and have either their hands or faces painted to show their love and support for people and children living with rare diseases in Ghana and around the world.
