Afterwards, she designed and implemented some school-based gifted development programmes and served as the GE coordinator. She also contributed to the School-based Gifted Development Programme Teacher Training Package by designing programmes in Creativity in 2001. She obtained the relevant qualification upon completion of the Train- the-Trainer Programme in Gifted Education. Apart from her commitment in implementing gifted education at school, Ms Chan also participates in the GE Teachers Network to gain more opportunities for students and teachers to learn and exchange.

Mr Kwan Wing Fat has started his career in education since 1990 and he received his Bachelor in Education from the Open University of Hong Kong in 1997 and a Master degree in Chinese Language and Literature at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2006. He has served in different schools as a curriculum leader since 2003. At present, he assists the vice principal in promoting gifted education at school. Besides, he participates in the GE Teachers Network (General Studies) and helps promote the implementation of Level 1 gifted education provision (whole-class teaching).


While pursuing professional development from being a frontline teacher, a curriculum leader as well as a middle manager, both Ms Chan and Mr Kwan undergo professional growth alongside the gifted students. In this session, the speakers will share their experience of collaboration in school-based gifted education including how to establish team-building, understand the learning needs of the gifted students and design structured and diversified gifted development programmes. Besides, by sharing the observations and experience in different schools, the speakers will elaborate how teachers can help gifted learners to develop and maximise their potential.

Mr FUNG Cheuk-laam, Davy
Po Leung Kuk Wu Chung College
Year 2, HKUST (Major in Biological Science)

FUNG Cheuk-lamm, Davy graduated from PLK Wu Chung College in 2013. He currently studies in the Department of Biological Science of the HK University of Science and Technology. Davy has exhibited his giftedness since he was a child. He became a member of the Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education in 2011. Davy participated in quite a lot of pull-out gifted development programmes in secondary school, for instance the "Life Journey- the Affective Education Programme for the Gifted" and "Forensic Science". Davy at the same time took part in various science competitions including the Energy Innovation Project Competition in which he was awarded with merits for two consecutive years and got the most creative award in one year. He was also the first runner-up in the Hong Kong Student Science Project Competition in 2011.


Apart from offering gifted development programmes on academic subjects for the gifted and talented students, schools should also advocate the importance of affective education. Generally, people think that the demand for affective education is minimal. However, it is not the case. Research shows that quite a number of gifted students may have social and emotional problems. In this session, Mr Cheng will share his experience in the implementation of the school-based pull-out affective programme, "Life Journey". His student, one of the participants in the affective programme is also invited to share how he benefitted from the programme, particularly in setting his life goals.

Since then she was a very active member in the school's science club and she took science subjects in the senior secondary. Vivian just completed her Bachelor of Pharmacy at The University of Hong Kong and is now doing her one-year internship in the hospital.


Ms Ngai Cheuk-yan, Vivian will share the impact of her participation in science competitions, Olympiad training and the International Junior Science Olympiad (IJSO) on her learning, affective and career development.
