Yes, but there's no need to hijack the briefing.

With regards to an earlier post about not many successful GEP cases showcased, you have to understand that the GEP was started in 1984 for 0.25% of the cohort and only grow to 1.0% in the 1990s. The bulk of the GEP students would be under 40 years old. Rest assured that you will start seeing many of them taking key positions in the civil service and corporate scene when they enter their 40s and 50s. The 4th generation leaders did not experience the GEP, but the 5th and 6th would be possibly. If they can unearth another LKY in the last 30 odd years, the GEP education is paid for multiple times.

The following speech by Tharman in 2004 highlighted some of the Geppers' academic achievements.

Does the book list get refreshed each year? Or generally the books are the same?

ERP recommended books are generally the same, with updates as necessary. The list is a guide for age appropriate good reads. Depending on the GE centre, generally the students are tasked with choosing from the list book(s) to do book reviews on.

Really thanks a lot for the prompt reply.

There seems to be so many unknown unknowns out there. Really appreciate parents who have had experience to guide us along.
