Pillar 7

Parent Services

Partner in education to our GESS parents

Aligning with our school’s fifth guiding statement of being a true partner for your family, GESS will invest time and resources to better support and partner with our parents for non-academic matters and school operations.

Supporting our parents throughout their time at GESS will be a dedicated, main point of contact for all their administrative matters. Procedures and processes will be streamlined and centralised. Additionally, there will be greater coordination of school-home communication, ensuring parents feel better informed and less overwhelmed.

All the school’s efforts within the Parent Services Pillar are focused on the goal of making our parents’ lives easier as well as building stronger partnerships and relationships with our families.
