STEERING COMMITTEE MEETING TODAY
Briefly, the meeting was to update those present on the status of the PERMATApintar project. To date about 37,000 children have done the PERMATApintar UKM1 assessment but that is still short of the targeted one million. Apart from working closely with the Ministry of Education (MoE) to increase the number, more publicity would be required to achieve the target (or close to it) by end of June.
NAGCM’S AID NEEDED
On 28th May, the MoE plans to have a chat session with graduates of the Johns Hopkins University Centre for Talented Youth Summer Camp and school children. They seek NAGCM members’ contacts and network to source these people out. If you know of anyone who has been to the JHU CTY Summer Camp, I would deeply appeciate it if you could let me know via email or phone. We would like them to share their experiences.
If you also have ideas, suggestions and comments on the project, would be happy to hear from you too.
