Note that Special Assistance Plan (SAP) Schools offer only Chinese Language as Mother Tongue.
From 2008, all 9 primary GEP centres introduced initiatives to promote greater interaction between GEP and non-GEP pupils, allowing them to learn, work and play together on a daily basis.
The integration models generally take one of 2 forms:
  • Integrated form classes comprising GEP and non-GEP pupils. The form class has common lessons for all subjects, except for subjects in the GEP core curriculum (English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies). This model is implemented in Nan Hua Primary School, Nanyang Primary School and Tao Nan School (Bi-Cultural Elective Programme [BiCEP] classes).
  • Separate form classes for GEP and non-GEP pupils. Classes are integrated for non-core subjects where pupils are pulled out of their form classes for combined lessons in Art and Crafts, Civics and Moral Education, Chinese Language/Higher Chinese Language, Music and Physical Education. This model is implemented in the other 6 GEP schools, as well as the non-BiCEP classes in Tao Nan School.
All 9 schools will continue to provide enhanced opportunities for greater integration through schoolwide activities, CCAs and Community Involvement Programme
