Group 4 Project

The Group 4 Project in IB involves all students working on a Science project. The aim is to work together to come up a presentation based on a common theme - this year the theme was 'water'.

After some creative planning sessions, students produced some amazing performances.

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.

GIS said farewell to its oldest students at the IB2 Leavers' Assembly.
The outgoing IB2 students were greeted with a guard of honour and party poppers by the IB1 students. 

Principal Mrs Hawtree then welcomed the students, who are in Year 13, to the whole school assembly.

IB Coordinator Mr Beales introduced several speakers who paid tribute to the IB2 students, including some brothers and sisters in the US, Canada and India. 

The Year 13 students are about to sit their final examinations for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, the world's largest and most-respected course for 16-18 year olds.

Sharp dance moves, soaring vocals and even juggling ensured the Secondary Talent Show was a huge hit. 

Organised by Creativity Prefect and IB1 student Tara, the acts performed to a packed audience of Secondary students. 

During the break, while judges decided on the winners, Mr Carr entertained the audience with a juggling masterclass. After some tough deliberations, the winners were an all-girl trio who sang a mash-up of Sugar, Love Me Like You Do and See You Again. In second place was a duet who performed Two is Better Than One and in third spot was another all-girl trio who sang Ride. 

Well done to Tara and her team for organising a great show, and to our technical crew for making everything look and sound so good! 
See highlights from the show here.


Here's how our IB1 students have been combining Art with Physics - the results are impressive!

PREFECTS and IB1 students helped spread a little love for Valentine's by delivering hundreds of roses, chocolates and gifts.

As well as delivering all the gifts, which included being serenaded, more than 5,000 baht will go to the Baan Khru Boonchuu Special School near Ban Chang, one of GIS's chosen charities for this year.


Well done to the IB1 students who acted as MCs for our Mandarin Night celebration - you both did a great job!
