GEP or not,you still need to pay the balance of the fees after $2400 subsidy. There's no longer full subsidy for GEP prog from MOE. The subsidy is capped at $2400. RI and RGS students need to pay $1200 per yr on their own.

Rubrics are given for all performance tasks and at the beginning, not when the child is supposed to hand out. That is expected, otherwise how would the student know what is the std of work. My girl is in Sec 1 now. After a while, you don't get too anxious. The GEPers are resilient, they will finally...
