Our School Services
Our School Services are designed to ensure that school life runs as safely and smoothly as possible for our GIS families.
Run efficiently and effectively by our nurse manager, along with our team of qualified professional registered nurses and receptionist, the GIS Medical Centre has a spacious waiting area, three in-patient beds, an isolation room for students with communicable diseases such as HFMD, measles and chickenpox and a well equipped treatment room to provide first aid assistance.
Our counselling unit, located within the Medical Centre, is designed as a calm sanctuary where our team of expert counsellors provide the care needed to support our student’s psychological and emotional health and holistic wellbeing.
School Bus Service
An extensive school bus network connects GIS with all major neighbourhoods across Kuala Lumpur, enabling students to travel from all parts of the city to both the Main Campus and EYC. All bus services are provided by external operators and the fees are based on the distance from home to school. In addition to regular bus services, services also cater for students attending our CCA programme in school.
The cafeteria located on our Main Campus is run by Cezar’s Kitchen, who provide our school community with delicious, nutritious meals and snacks throughout the school day.
With ten different food stations, a variety of dishes and packaged meals are on offer each day. Students and staff may choose from International, Asian and Vegetarian Set Meals, Western Delight, a very popular Pasta Station, Seoul Food, Asian Noodles, the Salad Bar, Deli Sandwiches and our Live Station, offering Rotisserie Chicken and Chicken Shawarma (on alternate days).
Bakery items may also be purchased from the café, in addition to sandwiches and assorted cut fruits which are available from the chiller display.
Our School Facilities
Our students are offered the very best facilities to help them to maximise their learning opportunities, enabling them to thrive. From specialist learning areas to our newly designed Sixth Form Centre, our campus has it all covered.
Specialist Learning Areas
Our extensive facilities have been carefully designed to ensure our students are provided the best opportunities for learning. This includes thirteen well equipped Science laboratories, state-of-the-art Design and Technology workshops, a STEM room in our Primary School, a PMP (Perceptual Motor Programme) Room and a range of outdoor learning areas.
Sixth Form Centre
Sophisticated in its design and with a university-style atmosphere, our recently renovated Sixth Form Centre offers the very best in terms of space and resources, providing a superb opportunity for our students to maximise their learning, increase their enjoyment of school life and prepare for the transition to undergraduate studies.
Our extensive and beautifully designed libraries, across EYC, Primary and Secondary, are well stocked and offer a broad, diverse range of spaces and resources- both physical and online- for the use and enjoyment of our broader GIS community.
Sports Facilities & Fitness Centre
We place an emphasis on personal development and offer a broad range of opportunities for students to learn outside the classroom. What’s more, we encourage active participation in sports and recreational activities through facilities which are specially designed for use in the tropics. These include our Sports Hall, All-weather Football Field and Tennis Courts, 25m 8 lane Swimming Pool, Covered Hard Courts and Gymansium with Weight Training Room.
Art, Music and Drama Facilities
Our state-of-the-art facilities provide students with excellent opportunities to flourish within the creative arts. The Performing Arts block is home to all Art, Drama and Music lessons.
Facilities include Drama performance halls and practice spaces, as well as our state of the art immersive Drama Studio. In Art, Primary and Secondary art studios and facilities are available, including a fully equipped photography studio and excellent ceramics facilities. The Art department is also home to an open plan sixth form studio where our A level students have their own workspace. Students also have access to industry-standard ICT to support Filmmaking and Photography. In Music, there is a variety of ensemble rooms and practice rooms, including an orchestra rehearsal room with a full orchestral percussion set. The recent addition of a music technology suite also means that students can work creatively on composition and music production using current technologies.
Design & Technology Labs
Our Design and Technology department is well resourced to encourage innovation, with specialist labs enabling access to industry standard ICT to support design. Students are given the opportunity to develop traditional engineering hand skills, as well as use a range of new technologies such as laser cutters, 3D printers, CNC routers, milling machines and centre lathes. Access to these facilities ensures that students develop a very broad skill base, which is essential for higher learning and industry.
We are an innovative school that uses technology effectively to enhance learning and communication across our school community. As an Apple Distinguished School, with students, staff and parents using Google Suite across all areas of learming, we have implemented wireless access points and Apple TV in all classrooms, as well as interactive projectors which are installed widely across the school. In EYC and Primary, Macbooks and iPads are deployed across the classrooms, and from Year 3 upwards, students bring their own device to school (iPads for Years 3-9; Macbooks for Year 10 and above).
For our Muslim community, we have prayer rooms for male and female students and staff to use for their daily prayers.
