Bringing laurels to the school, students from GIIS Queenstown and East Coast Campuses made their mark in IGCSE Class 10, 2014 exams with excellent academic accomplishments. 100% students from both, GIIS Queenstown and GIIS East Coast Campuses scored Distinction or Merit. The superb results for yet another year running are an outcome of meticulous planning and learning imparted by teachers and students’ focus to attain the highest goals.

In his message to students and teachers, Mr Rajiv Vasudeva, Country Director (Singapore), GIIS conveyed, “Students have displayed exceptional determination to attain success with not only good planning but great execution as well. As someone has said, ‘If you make a commitment to get something done, you need to follow through on that commitment.’ And our students have done that perfectly with committed support from teachers. The intensive coaching and mock exams conducted by both campuses have contributed to ensure the best for each student.”
