The German Swiss International School is an open All Day School. Located on the one compound, we have pupils from nursery all the way through to the German equivalent of the Ordinary Level School Leaving Certificate and the Cambridge International General Certificate of Education.
On the following pages we would like to give you an insight into the various aspects of the GSIS and activities. This, of course, represents just a brief overview of our daily work. You are also personally welcome to come and see the valuable work with the children for yourself. Allow yourselves to be inspired by the contents and pictures.
The GSIS – Accra has a nursery with a capacity for 12 children aged between 1 year and 3 years. When the children turn 3, or attain the required level of development (e.g. is out of diapers during the day), they can be moved into the kindergarten group. The bilingual concept is integrated into the entire daily routine and is supported by targeted pedagogical activities.
The Thuringian framework for children up to 10 years is the basis of the work in our bilingual kindergarten. With selected educational activities we cover all the specified areas of education.
Our primary school currently has 45 pupils, who are taught in learning groups of mixed ages. In our bilingual system, we have a class 1/2 and 3/4 classes in the German stream and class 1/2 and 3/4 classes in the English stream.
After primary school, the pupils continue to be taught in mixed-year groups in the bilingual system. Currently, classes 5/6 consist of 19 pupils and classes 7-10 of 12 young pupils.
