Abstract: 
A variety of programming models, both part- and full-time, have been designed to provide gifted children
with appropriate instruction to fulfil their needs and potential. In January 1993, The Chinese High School,
an independent school in Singapore, started on a pull-out gifted programme where students are selected to
attend a challenging, differentiated and enriched curriculum in Mathematics, Science and Computer
Science. Interesting enrichment activities carried out in the programme included a Mentor Link
programme and a creative computing camp. The strength of such a programming model is that while the
gifted students are provided with opportunities for rapid progress and challenging activities within
Mathematics, Science and Computer Science, they also have the opportunities to study and interact with
their regular classmates and to be leaders in their regular classes. The pull-out gifted programme, as set
up in Chinese High, was able to combine the advantages of both full- and part-time programmes. This
paper presents the characteristics and activities of the pull-out programme.
