GEMS World Academy (Singapore): a new educational institution in Yishun
Opening in September 2014, GEMS WORLD ACADEMY (SINGAPORE) - GWA (Singapore) will be the first school in Southeast Asia to be connected to the GEMS global network of international schools. The network provides the opportunity for students from Singapore to interact with their peers in other cities around the world from over 150 nationalities. This unique learning environment is designed to prepare students for a world that is more interconnected than ever before. GWA (Singapore) aims at nurturing and educating leaders of the future and providing your child with educational opportunities so he and she will have no problem qualifying and attending some of the best universities around the world.
Developed by GEMS Education, the largest K-12 private education operator in the world, GWA (Singapore) is a five-hectare, $213 million investment set to be located in Yishun. The new campus will house a state-of-the-art education infrastructure with facilities including everything from a world-class 750-seat auditorium to a planetarium and a well-equipped sports arena with an Olympic-sized swimming pool. The school aims to provide students with an outstanding international education programme through the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO). GEMS IB Diploma students have been recruited and accepted into more than 350 universities worldwide. While all academies under GEMS Education focus on academic excellence, they hold a strong belief in the Latin phrase ad vitam paramus, which means 'preparing for life'. This is why GWA students study world languages from an early age, participate in global initiatives and specially designed extracurricular activities and sports programmes that develop leadership skills through peer interaction.
GWA (Singapore) will encourage independent learning, empowering students to take on personal responsibility and will look to develop a student's character, talents, skills, creativity, values, entrepreneurship and leadership. The school will also reinforce basic human values such as honesty, kindness, generosity, courage, freedom, equality and respect in your child.
