Gr.11 Kylie Hur - “Learning That Matters” 11학년  Kylie Hur의 의미 있는 배움

​As educators we get the opportunity to work with students and mentor them every single day. Sometimes we see the direct result of our impact on their lives, often times not. But when we do, there’s not a prouder moment. This is one of them.When I arrived at GSIS in 2009, Kylie was a little 3rd grader whom I noticed as a pretty good soccer player.

GSIS Community Celebrates Its 10th Birthday 개교 10주년 기념식 후기

It was a picture perfect day for the GSIS community to come together to celebrate its 10th birthday. The event kicked off with students, faculty, staff and parents gathering in the outdoor ampitheatre for an opening prayer, cheers and a rousing birthday song offered to the Knights. Next the crowd gathered on the newly turfed soccer field where they formed the numeral "10" as they waited for the aerial drone to make a number of passes over the cheering crowd. And, as with any birthday celebration, cakes awaited the party goers at the end of the day . . . one that will be long remembered by everyone who loves GSIS.
