On Friday, 25 November, GSIS was certified as an Excellent German School Abroad!

Dear School Community

We are delighted to inform you that today 25 November 2011, at the conclusion of the Bund-Länder Inspektion (German Government Inspection), the German Swiss International School was officially certified as an “Excellent German School Abroad”.

This would not have been possible without all members of the school community – the Boards, the Management, Committees, Faculty, Administration and Support Staff, Students and Parents – coming together to achieve this common goal. There was a tremendous amount of work that went into the preparation for the inspection by everyone and you can all be proud that your efforts have paid off. True to our mission statement, we have cooperated and learnt from one another and in the process we have become an even stronger and better school. The BLI Steering Group in particular deserves a special thank you for guiding us towards this successful outcome.

The entire German Swiss International School community has many reasons to be proud of the school and to celebrate its many achievements, and it is even more reassuring when people from the outside come in and recognise those accomplishments. I look forward to seeing you at tomorrow’s Christmas Bazaar for a day full of celebrations.

With warm regards

Dr Jens-Peter Green
