1. To survive in GEP need to go for external tuition, Learning Lab highly recommended even by the teacher. Else you won't be able to catch up as in school do not really guide them
2. Need to self learn at least up till P6 or Sec level material else you won't catch up.

Also for P5 projects, they're asked to choose between DI, IVP and IRS. But for DI, only limited to 7 children as was told that based on GE branch MOE direction that need to allocate more students for IRS. Understand from www.idodi.org website, actually there is no limit in no. Of team/participant..

Maybe can help to share and enlighten me?

Thanks..

eh, no leh. My dd's principal told us right from the start not to send the kids for tuition. I've spoken to dd's teachers and they echoed the same view. the weaker students are identified by the teachers to attend remedial after school.

just curious, do the kids who attend TLL score better in exams ?

dd just confirmed they were told DI max 7. she's not interested in DI so it's ok.

DI is one of the ISO project that the p5 children can choose to take up. I think the teacher will select those suitable students for it. I think it stands for Destination Imagination.

Not many openly admitted they attended. But few attended (1 even from P3) also not in top...

DI max per team 7 students. Each team need 1 team Manager (in school TM=teacher, in US TM can be parents, etc)

The kids were told initially they're forming 2 teams. But later part reduce to 1 team with excuse of GE Branch requirement (???). They should just say due to manpower constraint...

Website is I Do DI
www.idodi.org
Can find a lot of useful info there.. Quite informative.. Should involve more child as it train on the spot creativity. Think of a solution with certain material you had instantly...
