Hi ANChan59,

Thank you very much for your sharing.  It's really useful.  I will  face the same problem for my daughter, between IB or NSS two years later.  

Could you please pm me the details of the English tutorial centres?  

One more request:  If possible, can I know your recommended summer programs overseas?  I really need to plan ahead.

Thanks a million!

The English Tuition Centre contacts will pm to you separately.

The summer programs my son attended are limited and with certain primary focus, like creativity, problem solving and application of Maths in different fields like Finance and Science etc. So pls treat this as examples and you can search more programs through internet. I also summarise some tips in searching gifted programs in the following recommendations:

1. Stanford University - EPGY Summer Institute

http://epgy.stanford.edu/summer/

a. My son attended middle school program - Creative Problem Solving at G6, age 11. I strongly recommend parents to apply through internet directly to EPGY (Education Program for Gifted Youth) and no need through HK agent, they are not helpful from my past experience.

b. Two years ago, EPGY had an International Summer Program in Imperial College, London and Ching Hua, Beijing respectively. We applied for that but my son was too young and turned down by EPGY. Ironically, he was accepted by Imperial College for the same summer program in the same summer through STEM and I will introduce that later.


c. EPGY also provides Creative Writing and other English, Science programs and Sports Camp.


2. Imperial College Summer School

http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/outre ... llege/summerschools

The details will be announced in early Spring 2011. My son attended two programs - Problem Solving and From Invention to Market (Business & Marketing). The also provide programs like Forsenic Science, Space Science etc....

My son first sit for the World Class Tests in HKUST as per the following link and passed with double Distinctions in both Problem Solving and Maths.


http://www.worldclassarena.hk/en/goforWCT/studentsTake.htm

Then you will be eligible for the Imperial College Gifted and Talented STEM World Summer Progam. If you want to take the program in HK under HKUST, you can also join the John Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) Summer Programs. John Hopkins is more famous in gifted and talented programs than Stanford in USA, JH also the first University provided Talent Search Tests nationally and internationally.

http://www.worldclassarena.hk/en/doWCT/Related.htm

3. NAGTY - National Academy of Gifted and Talented Youth, UK

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nat ... _and_Talented_Youth

I can't find the new link of the website. We applied that simultaneously with EPGY, we declinded that finally. But, they only served the family as British Citizens and Residents.

4. Voluntary Services

You can contact your kids' school(s) or the website of NGO, there are many programs in long holidays, not just summer. But some of them request you join as a family and not just the kid(s).

The programs mentioned above more on gifted programs (Not just limited in Maths, they also provided English, Science, Business and Sports programs) and with some international exposures, we utilised that as training tool to develop my son's independence and be ready to study aboard. The last but not the least, "so many elites in the world", make him to be humble.

From last summer onward, we shift the focus of summer programs to university admission and career selection. I mentioned that in other thread(s) to position him to get into his favourite programs either in HK or overseas.

Hi ANChan59,

Thanks very much for the information.  My daughter is not particularly strong in Math but she is enthusiastic in English.  I hope I can find some suitable summer program for her this year and let her explore her interest.

Thanks!

Thanks for your congratulation. Let's add oil for our boys......

This morning met with my boy's academic advisor, the advisor's comments on him are positive and he integrated well in the Pre-IB classess.

Most of his subjects are "proficient" and language subjects are "developing" and need more hardwork to get better grade.

The comments and remarks on individual subjects are valid and useful. He needs to digest those comments and formulate his improvement plan for the next semister.

As both subject masters in both English and Chinese languages are in IB workshops outside HK. We may discuss with them after CNY.
