It has been a rigorous but fulfilling week of our ongoing VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) here at GIS. We are determined to continue teaching and learning in spite of all the uncertainties that surround us. We continue to push ourselves by finding more creative and engaging ways to make our virtual learning environment worthwhile and effective. A very big thank you to our wonderful and dedicated team of Educators who continue to make this possible. It’s been a smooth transition so far and we look forward to many more engaging weeks ahead.

Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic, Maame Ama Annor, Aseda Asante, and Saania Murpuri, all Form 5 students of GIS, formed the AMS Outreach Organization dedicated to building brighter futures for the underprivileged children of Ghana. Motivated by their Motto ‘Touching Lives, One Kit at a Time’, their sole mission is to help children who face obstacles in their educational journeys to overcome them. They achieve this by providing literacy and hygiene kits while empowering these children to continue learning. Their ultimate intention is to help build a brighter future for a new generation of highly motivated individuals who are able to escape the poverty trap.

Welcome to the most unusual School Term of our lives! We are online beginning a term for the first time in the 65 year history of GIS. One of the comforting things is that we are not alone; all around the world, schools are either in session or about to begin a session away from the familiar territory of the school campus. My thoughts and prayers today are with all of us…let’s go forth and turn this Term into the best one ever!! Blessings,
Principal, Ghana International School

Rare Disease Day is celebrated on the last day of February every year all over the world. The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness about rare diseases and its impact on patients and their families.
In support of the day, on Friday 28th February, 2020 the entire Infant School community came to school wearing blue jeans, a white t-shirt with a touch of pink and had their hands painted with bright colours for a group photo. They later participated in a brief child friendly presentation and discussion on rare diseases.
