08 Jan GOTS Welcomes 2021
This year, it will introduce student ambassadors to help foster the school spirit.
“We have been thinking about this for a long time and feel the time is right to introduce them this year,” said co-founder Veronica Shepherdson.
“We will carefully select the first batch of ambassadors and help train them.
“It will certainly be a hard choice to make as all our scholars know the school so well,” said Shepherdson.
The ambassadors will also appear in the school’s promotional videos throughout the year to not only talk about the school but also the unique programmes which GOTS International School offers.
She added with a stop-start school year due to Covid-19 in 2020, GOTS International School had to forego some of its usual plans such as its Sports Carnival and year-end concert.
However, she is optimistic 2021 will be a better year and that the schools will be able to operate as normal.
“The concert and sports day are something everyone – scholars, parents, coaches and staff – look forward to,” said Shepherdson.
“Last year, we had planned to have the concert over three days due to the overwhelming response to the 2019 concert.
“But it was not to be. We hope to have that this year.”
Separately, she said she is excited as GOTS International School would be receiving the documentation for being an approved Cambridge Examination Centre for International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).
Among the other plans for the year is the introduction of special physical education classes to be conducted by GOTS International School’s new coach – Mohd Ruszaiman Mohd Idrus.
These classes will supplement the ongoing boot camp classes.
Mohd Ruszaiman is also a certified football coach.
