How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Excellent top-notch facilities. Recent upgrade to field rm 2 million investment. CCAs are varied from sports, to creative thinking and community outreach projects - A very impressive selection. Very happy with the variety available.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

Not applicable to us. We are locals. However, we are on the School's mailing list & we've received several invitations inviting expatriate families to attend talks & discussions on the subject; this included a recent PTF talk on employment opportunities, advice & living tips in Malaysia.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Very good. These meets are regular; 2-3 times per term, with a lot of interaction between teachers & parents. Mr Mann, the principal, is a hands-on individual and has attended all all the meets making him approachable & very accessible.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

There may be a wait-list as admission is competitive.

This school is well-runned and dynamic. There is healthy sense of competitiveness and the atmosphere is invigorating. Glad to be a part of the school! My son who used to hate his primary school looks forward to his year 8 classes each day & has remarked that time flies at GiS. That is indeed a compliment to the teachers and to the school. Keep up the good work, GIS!
