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?


Of course there are. My friend's son was very keen to get into GEP after seeing his kor-kor do his GEP projects etc. He enjoyed helping him and learning along with him. So he was very disappointed when he didn't get in. He also didn't feel challenged by his mainstream work after that.

Thanks.btw, the leadership camp will be held from 2 to 4 june 2011.
:lol:


So the date for the leadership camp has been shifted from the last week of June hols to the first week? Then it will clash with other programmes /workshops, right?

I remembered last year, during the first week, there was a English workshop (one day), Math Masterclass and some schools also use this period for overseas trip for their P5s.

Hi Trex8,

Based on the handout leadership camp for 2011 will be held in the first week of June as stated in my earlier post. I have not heard abt the maths workshops and chinese camp etc.

Cheers!

My DS2 in P3 this yr but likely can't go in... more of different in character and learning speed... so it is more of expectation setting with the kid... mainstream got enough challenge already. :P

Hi parents,

Just check my DS1 schedule and his P5 science IDP due this mth. He picked a hard topic to 'measure', and I got no idea how he's going to do it. Anyway, according to him, he just need to submit his finding and don't need to present.

I thought IDP must present your finding in front of the class?
