Secondary and Primary School Nominations 2019/20

    

The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) endeavours to secure appropriate learning and development opportunities for gifted students aged 10 to 18 in Hong Kong.

HKAGE admits student members of appropriate ages mainly through the “School Nomination” and “Self Nomination” schemes every school year. Gifted students interested in being members of HKAGE are required to pass “Stage 1: HKAGE Online Learning Programmes for Screening” before they can submit their nomination profiles in “Stage 2: Submit Nomination Profiles” for further screening.  

From school year 2019/20 onwards, one nomination will be arranged to be completed within a school year annually. 

  

      

  

Screening Criteria for HKAGE Student Membership

Screening by HKAGE is based on Dr Joseph Renzulli’s Three-Ring Conception of Giftedness, taking into consideration whether the student could benefit from the HKAGE programme provision.

3-ring

  1. Above Average Abilities:
    General abilities: processing information, integrating experiences, and abstract thinking
    Specific abilities: the capacity to acquire knowledge and perform in an activity

      

  2. Creativity:
    Fluency, flexibility, and originality of thought, an openness to experience, sensitivity to stimulations, and a willingness to take risks
      

  3. Task Commitment:
    Perseverance, endurance, hard work, self-confidence, perceptiveness and a special fascination with a special subject
