Calling all Mensans and Junior Mensans who are keen to find out more about the education path for gifted children in Singapore. Our guest speakers are gifted children educators who are themselves parents of gifted children. Details of their presentation are as follows:
It’s our fault, we created this mess – evaluating the education path for gifted children in Singapore.

They will also share their bullet marks of mistakes and areas which they could have done better in parenting these gifted children.
They will also discuss the various education and enrichment options for gifted children both in Singapore and overseas like the Gifted Education Program of MOE, Direct School Admission to top secondary schools in Singapore, John Hopkins & Stanford University online programmes and camps.
