Not for P4. Only for P6 and selected P5s.

How is your dd adapting to RGPS and GEP?

Hi Turquoise,

My DD is enjoying herself in RGPS. She is adapting well to the GEP programme and as well as the new environment

I can see that she enjoys GEP maths. I find that her maths is quite 'cheem' and they seems to be learning P5 stuff as well.

I am contemplating whether to drop her GEP maths enrichment at TLL. But she is enjoying her lessons at TLL so I am a bit confused. :?

Thanks...

BTW, my DS now also started enjoying his GEP...

But he commented that a lot of his classmate in 4FA of CHS felt that they are in a lower/worse class as compared to 4GE cause they always got scolded by teachers.

Not sure how true is this as according to Principal/Teacher, there is no such thing as which class is better or worse...

I think normally the class are scolded due to the students making too much noise or not behaving well right :roll: I don't think they will be scolded because they are academically not so good...

Hi Herbie

Glad to hear that your dd is enjoying herself at RGPS. You really don't need the extra Math classes at TLL. But if your dd has the time and is enjoying herself, I guess there's no harm in continuing. Although personally I would rather take the time to pursue other non-academic interests.
