One of our educational objectives at GIS is to offer students opportunities to develop lively, enquiring minds and independent thinking abilities. On Monday 19th November 2018, we celebrated excellence in academics by congratulating all our current Lower 6 Formers who in their IGCSE’s received grades of 6As and above.
They all hoped for it to stop, for it to just end once and for all, for it to never come back again and hurt them even more than last time! It was enough!
They did not want to feel unequal anymore, they did not want to be brutally treated each and every day, they did not want to be labelled because this was not the life that they had asked for, this wasn’t the life they deserved. They were eager for a chance to be human again, they were eager for a chance to feel human again, Eager for a chance to have the RIGHT to feel the same because they believed that discrimination against skin colour and an accent was totally unnecessary.

At GIS, one of our strategic goals is to make an impact in our community through service and Yes! We did it again! We walked and raised funds to support mental health in Ghana at this year’s (47th) GISPTA Sponsored Walk. 500 people participated including parents, teachers and students (Year 3 to Form 6).
Together with our GIS non-teaching staff, parents and children, we want to say a big thank you on this special day!
We hope you already know how special you are 😀.
We also hope you know we couldn’t be much of who we are if we didn’t have you- our teachers. 🙇♀️
And most of all, we hope you know that even on YOUR worst days (when you don’t feel like teaching!), you’re still making a difference in our lives…😀
