Need for holistic development of kids

I STRONGLY agree that if children are found to have high IQ and special talents, they must be cherished, valued and nurtured, otherwise it is a great waste of talent for Singapore.

However, the Gifted Education Programme here must ensure that other aspects of a child's development are also not neglected - moral and civic education, physical and mental health enrichment, human relations and social interaction skills.
