Alumni

Green Shoots guides each child under our care toward their unique future. One-on-one counselling conversations, guidance around how to choose a school and submit an application, and support for families, are all part of this process.

Graduating its first cohort of IGCSE students in 2016, Green Shoots can demonstrate a clear and consistent graduate pathway from our gates to world class universities via prestigious International Baccalaureate schools in Australia, Asia, Europe and America. Many have gone on to study with scholarships that recognise both their academic achievements and personal attributes.

From 2024, the school will expand its secondary programme to offer a high school diploma that will be one of a kind in the central region: a comprehensive, internationally renowned programme that prepares students for further education by giving them the academic skills and personal attributes they will need to succeed.

Greenshoots allowed me to study in a bilingual environment, which has been very beneficial for the rest of my studies. I was able to integrate into an international school with ease.

My years at GSIS provided me with a balance between guidance and independence in my academic work, which gave me a sense of self-sufficiency in, and care for, my education; something  I carried on through my high school and now into my university experience.

Class of 2017
When I attended Green Shoots, my teachers pushed me to do better both inside the classroom and out. The emphasis was on personal growth not just good grades and this made me want to do better and push myself to my limits in every way. At Green Shoots I truly learned what a good teacher should be like - someone who guides by understanding that every student is different.

Green Shoots gave me the opportunity to self reflect on what makes me special and unique. I was constantly reminded of my abilities and was engaged by the teachers and students around me who nurtured an academically rigorous environment. Green Shoots was a very special place for me because it helped me flourish, build my skill sets, and move forward in life to higher education.

Green Shoots was and still is very special to me. I learned a great deal of independence, and an incredible amount about myself there. I made many lifelong friendships and I became very close with the teachers and students, who all pushed me to become the best version of myself. I shared countless laughs and will value everything about Green Shoots for the rest of my life.

Green Shoots’ caring and inclusive community enabled me to learn English, which I did not speak when I first joined the school. The excellent teachers were always passionate about their subjects, enabling me to attain high results for my IGCSEs. I strongly believe that GSIS prepared me for life and made me grow as a person as I was able to develop life skills such as leadership and effective communication skills.

Class of 2019
Throughout my time at Green Shoots, I was provided with an environment where kids my age, from different backgrounds & nationalities came together to interact with one another. We were guided by a set of values that helped us understand one another’s cultures and beliefs and united us against problems concerning sustainability & community health/wellbeing. This has greatly impacted my later education, as I find it, under the guidance of GSIS’s values, much easier to blend into the multicultural environment of my new school.
