Greetings from GMIS Semarang.
We sincerely hope that you are coping well with these corona times and not letting your guard down in dealing with the pandemic. There is hope in the form of vaccines and the process has started but may take time before we are able to live as we were before the pandemic. During the drive by the government to inoculate all teachers over the last two months, most of our teachers and staff have already received both Covid-19 jabs.
The local government authorities have prepared extensive plan to open the school from July 2021 and we have submitted all the necessary documents required for their information, approval and further guidance. All the protocols and SOP’s as advised by the authorities and WHO website are in place in school and we are constantly working to improve upon them. We are ready as a school for face-to-face teaching on campus. The details of school timings and class timetable is being dispatched along with the report card of your child. Following table shows the days your child will be having In-campus classes.

We will keep you updated regarding the developments to face-to-face teaching at the school campus. In the meantime we are constantly working to make online classes more useful, effective and fun for our students.
All events for the year 2020-21 were organized, both in school and virtually, so that student learning was not affected. I was also witness to many of these virtual events such as the ICT exhibition, Debates, Story Telling , News Casting , Spelling Bee, ICT competition, Chinese New Year and so on and I am very happy to share with you that I saw the kids relaxed and enjoying these virtual events. In fact, we were surprised to see how our kids have adapted to the new way of learning which has become the new normal as well.
We are very happy to inform you that all our students have passed the Matriculation and Higher Secondary examinations conducted by BSEISI, held during April 2021. Congratulations to all concerned parents, students and teachers for achieving success in the examinations. With your cooperation, we conducted the Graduation Ceremonies for Grade Prep, Grade 5, and Grade 10 & Grade 12 in the school campus.
