Message from the Head of School

Mr. Glen Radojkovich

Mr. Glen Radojkovich

On behalf of the faculty and staff, it is my honour and privilege to welcome you to GEMS International School (GIS).

At GIS our mission is to develop lifelong learners who engage in meaningful learning experiences that build compassion, resilience and understanding of their role in our ever changing global community.

Our vision, as a GEMS International Baccalaureate World School, is to provide exceptional quality education to meet the needs of a diverse, international community in an ever changing world.

GIS is an environment we are confident will foster each child’s development and ensure they move closer to fulfilling their potential, while establishing a love of learning and aspiration to succeed.

I’ve had the privilege of serving many educational communities as a Principal, Headmaster or Head of School, for over seventeen years. Having also served as chairman on a number of national heads councils, for both the International Baccalaureate and Cambridge International Examinations, I have a great interest in academics; an interest I share with my colleagues at GIS.

I am very fortunate to work with an incredibly dedicated team of teachers whose focus is on ensuing your child’s best interests are met. Their goal in working with our students is to ensure they leave school each day happy, proud of who they are and what they have achieved.  

As a father of three children I am very aware of the challenges and concerns students and parents face during the different stages of the schooling years. As such, I recognise the importance of the partnership between home and school and am committed to ensuring this partnership is nurtured.

I believe strongly, that in the right environment, where students are respected and encouraged, they are capable of extraordinary achievements. I look forward to celebrating such achievements at GIS as our students develop as young leaders, engaging in academics, creativity, action and service opportunities throughout the rest of the school year.

I look forward to welcoming you to GIS.

Yours in Education,

Mr. Glen Radojkovich
