School Snaps: GEMS House Competition

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Academic credentials and extracurricular accomplishments are essential for successful progression from school to university. Even if a student has straight A’s on paper, the capacity to succeed in his or her further education and profession/career later on may be determined by what other skills and abilities, particularly communication skills, have been developed.

At GEMS International School, our pupils are imbued with good traits such as teamwork, resilience, and leadership in line with that of a Cambridge Learner. These ideals, which are supplemented by both academic and co-curricular programmes, help our students mature and develop their unique talent as well as their untapped potential. The ideal balance would be for our pupils to be at the pinnacle of academic excellence while still possessing the virtues necessary to become tomorrow’s leaders. GEMS provides all pupils with access to this through the delivery of a high-quality ‘true British values’ education.

GEMS International School conducts many after-school clubs, CCAs, and house activities as well as inter-school competitions. Such competition encourages students to explore different options, and devise tactics to come up with the winning formula. GEMS provides experiential learning like this as an integral aspect of the learning process because we know it is critical for the development of well-rounded students.
