They don't seem to have much science notes given plus they don't go thru the science text book(similar to that of mainstream) though we were told to buy (from the gep p5 book list)....By the way has your son start doing the IDP..i saw the lists in his file but he said do not need to start doing now....so another worry..maybe he has the wrong info... He didn't go to school for the past 2 days because of high fever and flu luckily recover fast even to go to school today to take the HCL unit test...
Was told during the PT meeting that the science textbook that we have purchase is for leisure reading only. As for IDP, what is it huh? I am aware of Individualised Study Options (ISO) under which they have the following:
Individualised Research Studies (IRS)
Innovation Programme (IvP)
Future Problem Solving Program (FPSP)
They are suppose to make their choice beginning of the year. DS opt for FPSP, but yeah, have not started on it also. The teacher mentioned that they will need to start soon, probably during the March break.
His school actually put up the briefing material on their website, maybe it will be helpful to the rest of this forum.
