Providing exceptional experience and enabling our students to develop skills-set to succeed for the future
GEMS Wellington International School has been outfitted with the very pinnacle of educational and extra curricular facilities.
As students, staff and guests enter the reception area of the school they are greeted by the warm and welcoming environment we pride ourselves upon. The plasma screens along with our displays throughout the school are used to showcase and celebrate student achievements. They also function to relay important information about up and coming events, both in and out of school.
Classrooms are fitted with the latest interactive whiteboards and make use of full Internet connectivity. This naturalistic environment is complimented by student art work and sculptures. The Cafe provides a variety of healthy refreshments for all in a multipurpose space that is used as a parent and student lounge promoting informal discussion groups.
Wellington International School benefits from a state of the art IT infrastructure; we have three fixed computer suites each with interactive whiteboards, projectors, industry standard software and full wireless internet connectivity. Where it is not practical to use a computer suite Wellington has a series of laptop and Ipad trolleys that can be called upon to support the learning in the classroom. With these resources students are able to engage in Image/video/sound editing, game creation, green screen, POD casting and multimedia presentations, not only do these support the learning within the subject area but more importantly equips our young people with the skills they need to contribute to the digital world we live in.
Facilities include a complete Knowledge Centre Library, a Dance studio, Drama studio and Art studios (3). Also, a Television studio and Radio station is onsite, a first in UAE schools. Stage productions are held in the Auditorium which has seating for 470 people. Students wishing to expand their horizons can visit our observatory for a breathtaking glimpse of the stars the entrance of which is seen in the picture. This is further developed towards GCSE Astronomy and The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award expectations into the desert star gazing and night.
The Cafe provides refreshments not only for students, but also for teachers and parents allowing them to meet and have discussions promoting informal discussion groups
Sporting facilities at WIS include a floodlit astro turf ,health and fitness studio, a large multi-purpose sports hall and a Primary Sports Hall, cricket nets, tennis, basketball, netball and volleyball courts, a 25m indoor swimming pool, outdoor pool, and a play area for Foundation Stage and year one children. The dance studio, with two fully mirrored walls, also doubles as a gymnasium for floor work.
As can be seen, GEMS Wellington International School is able to cater to the unique needs of each of our children. Whilst high academic standards are essential for any school our motto of 'Success for All' means that all students get a chance to experience success in Sport and Performing Arts.
