Our Programme

Gifted Education Programme (GEP)

The Gifted Education Programme (GEP) was implemented in 1984 to provide an education of quality and relevance which stimulates individual growth and helps pupils realise their full potential. The aim of the GEP is to develop intellectual rigour, humane values and creativity in gifted youths to prepare them for responsible leadership and service to country and society.

The goals of the GEP are as follows:
      • to develop intellectual depth and higher level thinking
      • to nurture productive creativity
      • to develop attitudes for self-directed lifelong learning
      • to enhance aspirations for individual excellence and fulfilment
      • to develop a strong social conscience and commitment to serve society and nation
      • to develop moral values and qualities for responsible leadership

In 1999, Nan Hua Primary School became the ninth primary GEP centre. 

Nan Hua Primary School Gifted Education Programme (NHPS GEP)

The NHPS GEP is a 3-year programme anchored on the school’s vision to nurture Engaged Learners who Lead with Character and Serve with a Heart. Our approach puts the child at the centre of learning. It is our belief that student-centred holistic development, joyful learning experiences and stronger relationships with their peers and teachers will lead to lifelong learners who pursue learning opportunities at every stage of their lives in order to better themselves. 

The NHPS GEP experience is an integrated one. Starting 2020, Primary 4 form classes will be organised to include students from both the Gifted Stream and Mainstream. A pupil who enters the NHPS GEP will join one of eight Primary 4 form classes. This integration aims to afford greater mixing and to achieve the best balance between stretching the potential of the pupils and promoting their all-round development. Working closely together allows them to make more friends in the school, thus widening their social circle and allowing for their social emotional competencies to be enhanced. 

Pupils will be promoted in their form classes enbloc from Primary 4 to Primary 6. Central to our reasoning behind the enbloc promotion is the harnessing of the synergy that exists within each class and that a stable classroom environment leads to inclusivity, confidence, fostering of positive bonds and forging of deeper friendships. 

Form Classes
In their form classes, pupils take the following subjects/areas: 
      • Form Teacher Guidance Period 
      • Art & Craft
      • Music
      • Physical Education
      • Health Education 

Pull-Out Classes
GEP pupils are pulled out during curriculum time for the following subjects: 
      • Character & Citizenship Education
      • English Language
      • Higher Chinese Language*
      • Mathematics
      • Science
      • Social Studies
      • Inquiry Skills (P4)
      • Individualised Study Options (P5)

*Higher Chinese Language is taught in mixed classes using the GEP enriched curriculum; GEP pupils are integrated with selected non-GEP pupils.  


While the NHPS GEP pupils benefit from the robust school-wide programmes such our Learn for Life Programme (LLP), Applied Learning Programme (ALP), and Co-Curricular Activities (CCA), their affective dispositions and intellectual potential are further developed through enriched subjects under the able hands of our team of GEP teachers.

Enriched Subjects

      • Character & Citizenship Education
      • English Language
      • Higher Chinese Language
      • Mathematics
      • Science
      • Social Studies

The GEP curriculum is differentiated in four areas – content, process, product and learning environment. Enrichment in the GEP is built upon the regular curriculum with extension in both breadth and depth.

Computer Enrichment Programme (CEP)
P4: Introduction to Coding Course

In Primary 4, the introductory CEP course aims to arouse pupils' interest and equip them with skills in coding, provide a platform for pupils to discover and develop their strength in computing/coding, develop pupils' self-confidence and to inculcate values such as teamwork and discipline in them.

P5: Basic Coding & Robotics Course / Advanced Coding & Robotic Course
In Primary 5, pupils participate in either the Basic or Advanced Coding & Robotics Course based on their aptitude demonstrated in the P4 CEP course.

Inquiry Skills & Individualised Study Options

P4: Inquiry Skills (IS)
In Primary 4, pupils are all taught core research skills such as library research, data gathering, data analysis and report writing during their IS lessons to prepare them for project work in the various ISOs in Primary 5.

P5: Individualised Study Options (ISO)
In Primary 5, pupils tap on knowledge and skills learnt in P4 IS to embark on a project in their chosen ISO. NHPS GEP offers the following ISOs:

      • Community Problem Solving Programme (CmPS)
      • Individualised Research Study (IRS)
      • Innovation Programme (IvP)
      • Destination Imagination (DI) - commencing 2020/21 season

In the implementation of ISO, a teacher-mentor supervises a small number of pupils and provides monitoring and feedback to encourage and help the pupils as they complete their projects. Parents can also help by providing support, encouragement and practical assistance such as discussing the project with their child, and helping him/her get appropriate resources.

Pupils do not receive a grade in their report books on their ISO projects. They showcase and share their findings and products at various platforms in school and outside school.

Advanced Mathematics Enrichment Class (AMEC)*
The aim of AMEC is to provide enriching learning experiences beyond the core curriculum to pupils with exceptional abilities in Mathematics. AMEC encourage the pupils to explore broader and deeper mathematical concepts, and allow the pupils to focus their energies on enriched and advanced work in Mathematics over an extended period of time. In AMEC, pupils will be exposed to various challenging advanced mathematical problems. They will discuss and examine these advanced mathematical concepts in greater breadth and depth, and learn different and efficient problem-solving strategies to tackle problems.

*AMEC is offered to selected Primary 6 pupils who are mathematically precocious.
