What is the layout of the SMART campus?
The SMART Campus is divided into two blocks: Peranakan (P) and Straits (S); names chosen to reflect the rich Singapore culture and its integration into our school.
The ‘P’ block is used by students from Nursery to Grade 6 including those from Queenstown & Balestier campuses.
The ‘S’ block is used by students from Grade 7 to 12, for all three curricula - CBSE, IGCSE and IBDP - from Queenstown, Balestier and East Coast. Four sections of Grade 7 will be present at 'P' block.
Below table indicates the location of various sections.
Where can I find the Guide Map to locate various facilities?
The campus will have dedicated floor maps on each level. Each level will also have clear signages to indicate the various facilities.
Each student will receive information on MyGIIS of their section valid from 2nd July, room number of the section. The room numbers will be mentioned as eg. P2-21, where 'P' stands for the Peranakan block, '2' indicates Level 2 and -21 indicates the room number on that floor. Similarly if that classroom number is S6-05, 'S' stands for Straits block, '6' indicates Level 6 and -05 indicates the room number.
Generally speaking, the list below indicates the grades assigned to the floors.
P Block Level 2 - KG, Grade 1 and Grade 2 Sections
P Block Level 3 - Grade 3 and Grade 4 Sections
P Block Level 5 - Grade 5 and Grade 6 Sections

IS THERE A CYCLE PARKING FACILITY INSIDE THE SCHOOL?
The school has made arrangements for students to park their private cycles inside the school campus. Riders can enter through Gate 1 and park the cycles at the two designated spots near the U-turn sign. The students who are using publicly rented cycles are not allowed to park them inside the Campus and need to leave them on the large, green open space opposite the school.
HOW MANY LIFTS AND STAIRCASES DOES THE CAMPUS HAVE? ARE THE NUMBERED FOR EASY LOCATION?
There are over 9 elevators in the premises (4 in ‘Peranakan’ block and 5 in ‘Straits’ block) available to students. Besides this, students can take the stairs to access desired floors. All staircases are located near the lift landing.
WHAT ARE THE OUTDOOR SPORTS FACILITIES OFFERED AT THE NEW CAMPUS?
The school will offer a soccer field with artificial turf, a cricket field with natural turf, a tennis court, basketball court, cricket pitches and outdoor play area for our students. These facilities are under preparation and shall be ready by end August or earlier.
GICC students will be able to use all sports facilities on Saturdays.
As part of our continuous efforts for community integration, the school shall offer up the nearby residents the access to the sports facilities, post 7 pm on weekdays and 9 am to 6 pm on Sundays. This access shall be subject to availability of school grounds, provided there are no school events being scheduled during those hours. The nearby residents will get this access at no charge.
