Secondary Years Principal End Of The Year Message

I would like to thank everyone in the GEMS (Singapore) Community for making the Academic Year 2017-2018 a very successful one!

With the completion of the IB Diploma Programme (DP) examinations and the graduation of the 2018 class, we are now firmly established as a Secondary Years division. Committed to helping all of our students reach their best academic potential, in a highly supportive environment with age-appropriate differentiated approaches.

I would like to thank the SY teachers for their subject knowledge and experience, and the care they show to their students. They are ready to give up their breaks, lunches, or even a weekend to provide additional help or further challenge to their students. I appreciate their dedication – what a wonderful team to work with!

However, SY is not only about academics; it is also about pursuing your own passions and developing further skills.

I would like to thank and congratulate our athletes and artists who represented our school at sporting events or whose artwork has been used around our campus and beyond.

As a school, we look for opportunities to celebrate our students, their successes, achievements and contributions to school life by and in front of their peers. Celebrations such as these have a positive impact on the study cohort and engender a spirit of continual improvement.
