GISST Swimming Gala
20-21 January in Frankfurt

I would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to our swimming coaches Mrs. Theresa Eckersley, Mr. Allen Lindblad and Ms. Alessia Prest for their effort and great job supporting the GISST U14 and Varsity Swimming Teams this school year.

Sixteen FIS students travelled to Frankfurt last weekend to join the annual swimming gala. They came back with many individual and team medals (7 gold, 3 silver, 3 bronze), one team trophy (2nd place overall varsity girls). Three new GISST records were set by Leonie Sauer – 100m individual medley, 200m freestyle and 50m butterfly.

Congratulations to all! Go FIS Dragons!

Girls Basketball

Last Wednesday our Junior Varsity Girls Basketball team have played the “Bezirksfinale” in Weißenburg. The girls have fought hard and completed this round in the 1st place, qualifying for the North Bavarian Tournament to be held later in February. Congratulations to the girls and coach Rali!

Basketball Friendly Fixtures
Saturday, 28 January and Saturday, 11 February

This Saturday we will have our first basketball friendly fixtures. Our Varsity Girls and Boys teams will be going to ISF (International School Frankfurt) to compete. The same day, U14 Boys and Girls Basketball teams will be playing here at the FIS.


Whenever we host events, the Booster Club helps to provide refreshments for all the players and spectators. We ask parents to kindly donate beverages and/or offer to help on the day selling food and drinks. If your child is playing, you will still be able to watch them and your support is very much appreciated.

Here is the link to sign up for helping and/or donating food!

Thank you in advance for your support!
