Science Research and Talent Development are 2 separate programs.amk wrote:I heard from my girl that some students are selected for Science Research/ Talent Development program at S2.
Anyone know what are these programs for and are there any other programs?
My understanding is students has to qualify for Science Research program on a yearly basis. Students who meet the required Sc subject grade will be invited to participate in various research topics, usually under the guidance of a mentor.
Students are nominated for the Talent Development Program (TD) at the end of Y1/S1. I may be wrong, but I don't think nomination is based solely on grades. In Y2/S2, TD students will attend various kinds of workshops - Sc, Humanities, even leadership development. In Y3/S3, students will hv to decide on joining either the Science stream or Humanities Stream, and go on to take up related projects, presentations/competitions, attend workshops, visits etc.
TD students are urged to stay commited and maintain active participation. Parents are urged to fully support their girls as there are times when the projects timeline clashes with their academics. Despite the additional time & effort, my dd enjoyed and benefitted from the TD program.
