IB PRAISES GIS AFTER REVIEW

The International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) has praised GIS following a 5-year review.

The review, which is a standard procedure for all IB World schools, looked at every aspect of how the IB Diploma Programme is run at GIS. This included looking at the curriculum, the school's educational beliefs, its leadership, resources and the teaching and learning that takes place.

The 30,000-word document, written by GIS, was sent off earlier this year and the IBO has now released its findings. 

They found that: 'Based on the findings included in the report, the IB has not identified any matters to be addressed.'

The report also commended GIS in several areas, including how the school promotes Thai language by offering Thai A and also how the IB's learner profile is reflected in several subjects.

IB Co-ordinator Mr Mark Beales said: "It's fantastic news to have such a positive report. This confirms everything that we already believed about GIS - that it offers superb value education and the highest academic levels."

News of the review comes after this year's examination results, where for the second-year running GIS students had a 100 per cent pass rate in the IB Diploma. 

The IB Diploma is the world's leading qualification for 16-18 year olds. It is a challenging course that opens doors to the world's leading universities. 

GIS is the most experienced IB Diploma school in this part of Thailand.

IB Formal 2017


IB2 students have celebrated the end of their examinations – and the end of school – with a special evening at a five-star hotel.

GIS’ IB students have just finished their examinations for the International Baccalaureate Diploma – the world’s leading qualification for 16-18 year olds.

This year’s IB Formal evening was held on May 27 at the Hilton, Pattaya. Students arrived dressed in their finest suits and gowns and enjoyed an international/Thai buffet. Speeches were made by GIS Principal Mrs Hawtree, IB Coordinator Mr Beales and the IB Form Tutors, Mr Carr and Mr Berry. Mr Berry is the first teacher in the history of GIS to take a Tutor Group all the way through Secondary, from Year 7 to Year 13.

After some great final performances from the talented students, all the IB students made short speeches, thanking their parents and teachers at GIS. The evening ended with the traditional throwing of mortarboards.


After graduating with the IB Diploma, these students will head off to various world-class universities to study everything from journalism, engineering, medicine and movie-making.
