Quite simply this means that at GEMS AKNS we believe that no student, no parent and no member of staff should be left behind and we all have the right to succeed and learn. The only way this is truly achievable is if we all work as a team hence our belief in Excellence through Teamwork. We welcome your engagement in your child’s learning throughthe different GEMS programmes.  More information on how you can become engaged in your child’s learning can be found by clicking on the Parent tab.
