We are thankful that at GES we can provide different enrichment courses to our students. We believe that learning content and skill sets out of the traditional core subjects gives students a chance to develop their personal skills, make friends in a new context, and become more confident communicating in groups. These supplementary subjects and areas of focus aid in the development of self-esteem and confidence, which GES affirms are elements in the bedrock of happy, successful individuals.
