EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY: GIS strives to nurture the moral, intellectual
and physical growth of its students. The school mission is the building
and stamina in both academics and sports as well as stimulating personal
achievement by teaching the values of respect, gratitude, humour and
real caring for others.
The strengths of the school curriculum is in its flexibility to respond
to the needs of the individual student; providing usable knowledge,
while at the same time inspiring reflection,
provoking creative thoughts, instilling a sense of direction and encouraging
identity development. GIS demands self discipline, appropriate behaviour
and a high quality of work - in its conception
and presentation - but not without offering the tools and teaching staff
to help students meet this challenge.
