Genwise Summer School
While the GenWise Summer School is clearly aiming to stimulate, challenge and inspire the academically precocious students, in our experience, these gifted and talented kids take away just as much (if not more) from the non-academic components of our Summer School, from a Socio-Emotional perspective...
For many of our students, this is among their first opportunities to experience and adapt to the challenges of being away from home, and learning that freedom and independence go hand-in-hand with responsibility. Our faculty and counseling staff are acutely aware of and sensitive to the social and emotional needs of children in this age group, and are trained to handle and resolve issues, if any.
For details about Student Accommodation, Food/ Meals, Safety & Security, and about the venue in general, please follow the links indicated... in this section, we will concentrate on what the students will be doing...
Day In the Life of the GenWise Summer School
GenWise's Summer School for the Gifted and Talented offers academically precocious students the opportunity to engage in challenging academic work in the company of peers who share their exceptional abilities and passion for learning.
While the focus is on rigorous academics and learning to learn, the social experience that results from bringing these Gifted and Talented students together is the highlight of the program.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in a whole host of activities including sport, dance, painting, quizzing, treasure hunt, etc. on the daily evening activity. A Talent Night, and DJ night are also planned.
