The grand donation total for the day was €4000 Euros, a truly amazingly generous amount. Special thanks go to: Lucas P, Lisa J, Chris H, Lisa R... Read More

Originally GISST swimming was supposed to take place in January, but due to the storm our team was unable to travel to Frankfurt.

Luckily the International School of Frankfurt offered us another opportunity to still take part in this tournament. We were invited to come over in April so our students... Read More
