About GISS

International 

Our vision is to enable your child to live a fulfilled life in tomorrow’s modern and rapidly changing global society. Our 360 students from Preschool to Year 12 are part of an international community, with about half of them coming from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and many other countries and the other half from Australia. Therefore, we truly live our mission to offer the highest quality co-education in a bilingual and international environment.

CURRICULUM

Bilingual

We provide our students with a complete education experience in a co-educational and bi-lingual environment. Our focus is to encourage our students to study a broad curriculum to achieve individual academic success while also fostering personal development in preparation for life after school. 

It is not necessary to be familiar with the German language as we boast a successful intensive language immersion programme, leading to bilingual competency in both English and German. This method allows children to acquire a second language passively, by engaging them in authentic experiences in both languages.
