king arthur andre tomorrow, my eldest son arthur, will seat on the "gifted child" examination.

although i can say that he's quite doing well in his studies (given the circumstances), it is not exclusive to their "kind". the examination is actually open (and free) to all primary 3 students. it's a national exercise which happens every year here in singapore to tag those with "potentials".

out of the few thousands students, about 500 will be short listed. they will bundled together and will be on a different syllabus. a form of "accelerated" class, leaders of the pack.

i'm not really sure if want him to be labelled as one. no doubt that the program can really maximize the child's potential. but considering it's rigidity, it might rob him of his childhood. i would really detest that!

galingan mo na lang anak and make us proud!
