Congratulations to your daughter, Herbie!

Zann,
Based on the calendar we got, looks like 2nd to 3rd week of June holidays might be good time to go on holiday. I think there is Maths Masterclass in 1st week of June Holiday.

Agree with ksme that 2nd and 3rd week of June is a good time to go for holidays.

When DD was in P5 GEP last year, for Week 1 there was Math Masterclass and Spelling Bee Competition as well as an overseas school trip organised by the Chinese Department. Some kids selected for Math Masterclass had to miss the overseas trip. For Week 4, there was the Leadership Camp. DD attended the camp last year but for those who are not attending, then Week 4 is free.

For September holidays, there is a Creative Arts Programme (CAP) for selected GEP students. It took up about 3 days of the one week hols.

I don't remember there being any special GEP programmes during the year end holidays. Maybe some other parents can confirm this?

Hi all,

Just wanna check, does anybody have a child who got into GEP but his sibling(s) didn't? How did the sibling who didn't get in feel and turn out?

if there's a concern, then as parents we should start managing the expectation way before the screening/streaming so that we don't unintentionally make them feel guilty.
