Well done GIS for hosting this year’s International Schools Sports Association Games (ISSAG) and for placing first and third in the Girls and Boys Field Hockey divisions respectively.
Kudos to our PE and Sports Department for motivating our students to strive for excellence. We look forward to many more record breaking wins in future.
It is always a pleasure to have our Alumni come around every now and then to share some of their candid experiences with our students.
We recently had some members from the Class of 2012 talk to our final year students about university applications, how to adapt to university life, dealing with racism, peer pressure, drug abuse and the importance of making the best choices in life. It was indeed an insightful session.Thank you for coming. #GivingBack#KeepingItReal#GISAlumni#Responsibility#Leadership.

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.
