You are right, no assessment book or past year papers for GEP in the market.

I believe most of the kids (mine is happy) will adjust well, so don't worry.


Yes. In fact, that's the good thing about GE. No need to have herd mentality and force the kids do loads of PYP & assessment books (no time for those, anyway). The most important thing is still their learning attitude. With the right attitude, they should be able cope with the curriculum by themselves or with some help.

Hi! I am new here.

My DD today just collected the big & thick yellow envelope back home. I was so happy for her. But, she refused to change school. In her class, there were total 5 students went in the GEP. So scary!

By the way, I am very blurred about this GEP. Would like to know what will the child benefit in this program. Would it be very stress for the child?

Would like to hear from the present or ex GEP child's parent opinion. Please advise.

:?

I think this is a common trait ... evasive (mine will give philosophical answers without commiting):x

Similar scenario last year : kid got selected, refused to change, a lot of persusaion.. blah blah..

First, don't panic. Attend the GEP talk with your DD - I believe she will change her view after the talk.

Second, most of the children (kid and her classmates)will enjoy GEP. They won't be bored as they will be mentally challenged.

Third, they will become more independent and responsible (projects, filing, etc). I believe they become more articluate in general.

Hope that helps. :D

Have you checked with the school?

As mentioned earlier, the child/parent will be informed of the outcome.

So, end up, did your child change school? How is it now? Can tell me more.

I think I have more worries than happiness.
