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.
He had the highest score in the whole of Africa, an achievement worth mentioning.
In 2019 he won an award (Honourable Mention) at the UK International Mathematical Olympiad. Roni Edwin was also the youngest winner of the Ghana Math Olympiad at age 13 in 2017 and went on to tie first place on the Geometry Exam with a perfect score.
He was the overall winner of the Ghana Math Olympiad 2018 and 2019 becoming the only student to win the competition back to back. No wonder he made an impression at the World stage.
Held in St Petersburg, Russia, this year’s International Mathematical Olympiad had 105 countries represented by 616 contestants with our very own Roni Edwin making us proud with an impressive score and performance.
Congratulations to Roni Edwin! Ayekoo!!!

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
