Academic Team’s Message – GIGIS


“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

– Benjamin Franklin

GIGIS, Singapore welcomes you to come and join us in our journey of involved learning, where each child will be guided to steer the way to his or her own all-round development and excellence.

In today’s fast-paced world, where knowledge and information are developing rapidly, the primary challenge we all face is to stay relevant, to remain connected.

At GIGIS, our primary aim is to ensure that every member of our family is a lifelong learner, always ready and willing to take on new challenges, to open their minds to new ideas, to rethink their solutions to fit the changing scenarios.

GIGIS is a boutique international school started with the motivation of making quality education affordable to all. Having trained thousands of teachers for the past 15 years at the G I G professional development centre, the group has now taken the initiative of starting a school with the internationally recognised enquiry – based pedagogy to deliver the curriculum.

We may have started small but our goals are big. The small class size ensures active and focused learning, giving the teachers the opportunity to gain insights into each child’s individual development, allowing them to customise the teaching-learning process to fit every child’s needs. It also creates a close-knit community of teachers, students, and parents where all feel comfortable to exchange ideas, provide inputs and share experiences.

Academic learning and cognitive development are the core of our operations at GIGIS, balanced by a range of co-curricular and extracurricular activities to create an active mind in an active body. The school also believes in nurturing an environment of kindness and compassion, where every child is willing to help, ready to make a change for the better.

The academic curriculum is designed to help every child to exceed their potential by igniting the curiosity in their minds and guiding them to seek their own answers, developing new skills and sharpening existing ones along the way. The school firmly believes in motivating every child with the philosophy of “Either you win, or you learn. You never lose” – so while assessments would be conducted regularly, they would serve as a tool to chart the child’s progress in understanding and application, not rote learning.

Discipline will be firm and fair, with the idea always being to encourage the child to understand and adopt the best practices for his or her own safety and wellbeing.

A time-tested curriculum backed by a modern and dynamic pedagogy, a team of highly experienced and motivated teachers, extended classrooms and digitalized learning tools, an exciting and fun place where you’ll see your child go (or grow) from strength to strength – all this at an easily affordable fee and an easily accessible location in the heart of Singapore at Newton – Join us for this and more!
