My son likes maths but my inclination is for him to have some exposure to the outdoor activities camp.
Would much appreciate it if I could get some opinions/feedback on both the programmes, especially from those who have knowledge of the details of either or both programmes, or someones whose kids have joined either or both programmes previously.
Just by merely looking at the brief descriptions of the programmes doesn't really give me a good idea of which programmes is more benefiting.
I have the same dilemma! Will have to wait till ds to come back and discuss...
I think you may agree with me that from our perspective, the GEP branch (HQ) should have tried best to arrange for the 2 programmes to be held at different times (like the previous years). But, well, the officer in the GEP branch said just choose 1 of of them, when my DS's math teacher called him up to explore if there could be any better way other than dropping 1 of them..
Ds was told by the teacher that if he gives up the Camp, the sch can find a replacement but not for the Math Master. I think my ds will go for the Math Master but I can only find out later.
