We Made It Through Our First Week

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!

After a year of not being on campus, Parents were able to assure their children that everything was and is going to be fine. Primary School Nurses (Mrs. Alberta Hayford (L) and Mrs. Massah Awandare (R) were also available for the morning routine checks

Our Reopening Continues!

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.

Infant School celebrates 2021 Rare Diseases Day

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.

Give Chrystal the Gift of Life

As you may be aware, GIS has a proud history of collaborating with the Children’s Heart Foundation Ghana to raise money to enable needy children with hole-in-heart conditions to have life-saving operations.
This year, our seasonal appeal is for eleven (11) year old Crystal Dzokoto who is sadly in need of a life-saving heart operation. Crystal has been diagnosed with a complex hole-in-heart condition known as Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and is due for full repair of the defect. We are thrilled to inform you that Crystal is a very bright and hardworking pupil who topped his class last year. With your contributions, he will be able to have his surgery. This will help to keep him in good health to continue his studies.
The total cost of surgery, anesthesia, intensive care, and ward stay is the cedi equivalent of eight thousand US dollars (USD8,000.00).
We are therefore appealing to all members of our School Community, far and near to consider giving the gift of life this festive season! Kindly send your contribution to the new GIS Momo #:0541572377

Master Roni Edwin, an Upper 6th Form Student of Ghana International School made the headlines this week by being the first Ghanaian to win an IMO (International Mathematical Olympiad) bronze medal.
