We had the honour and privilege to welcome the Chairman of the GEMS Education Group, Mr Sunny Varkey and his son Jay Varkey, together with members of the senior leadership team to our school on Friday 13th of January.
Mr Varkey’s parents, both teachers, arrived in Dubai in 1959 from India to seek a better life for their family and what they found was a real need to educate children arriving in the city from around the world. Their son, Sunny, added a visionary’s ambition to a practitioner’s experience. From simple roots in a family of teachers, GEMS Education is today the largest privately owned international school provider, educating over 250,000 students across the globe, with an aim to provide a quality education to everyone.
Our students have the opportunity to exchange and share with other GEMS students across the world, enriching the international learning experience we offer. We are one of only 5 schools globally to have the “World Academy” status and we strive to become the best day school in Switzerland.
