The intellectual capacity of children is vastly underestimated and schools have tended to become places where children are stored, hopefully safely, while they mature sufficiently to be able to look after themselves in the world beyond school.

School, particularly for intellectually gifted children could, and should be, so much more!

There is no reason why the nature of the work done in schools cannot be enhanced and augmented in terms of complexity; content, relevance and application. The school experience and delivery of the curriculum can be managed in such a manner that children continue to be excited about the experience of being at school, from Grade 1 to Grade 12.
