What I value the most about the school is its diversity, the commitment and dedication of its teachers and the wonderful way the school supports students in their journey to be thinking, mindful, well-rounded individuals.
I asked our son the other night what he liked best about GEMS World Academy (Singapore) and he said: “Great teachers, nice classmates! Best music program, swimming and gym classes! What I am learning is really fun and challenging! And of course RECESS!” .
When I grow up, I want to be a professional football player like Pelé, Maradona or Messi and play for FC Barcelona or Manchester United. I really want to win the Champions League and the World Cup! I really like my teachers and the way that the school is organised. I love all the big spaces for outdoor activities, especially the football pitch. I am so excited to be coached by the FC Barcelona soccer school. I hope that one day my coach will be one of the players from FC Barcelona. We’ve had many school competitions and races which I really enjoyed, from football tournaments, swimming and cross country. I feel very comfortable competing for the school because of the great support from my friends and coaches.
There are lots of things that I enjoy about the school. From the awesome playgrounds to the friends I have made who are so friendly and caring. In addition to this my teacher gives me work at my level and lots of challenges. I really enjoy learning languages, especially Mandarin, where one day we got to make dumplings when we were learning about Chinese New Year Also I got to perform at our UN Concert, where we got to write our own scripts and dance on stage. I was a Risk Taker by performing in front of an audience.
We are very pleased with the education our boys are getting at GEMS. The teachers and staff are top notch and the facilities can't be beat. Best decision we made when moving to Singapore in 2014!
