Gifted and Talented

Gifted students are those whose potential is distinctly above average in one or more of the following areas of ability at school - intellectual, creative, social and physical. Our gifted and talented programs provides these students with learning opportunities on top of the normal curriculum.

Selective Stream

In Years 7 to year 10, gifted students are placed into two academically ‘selective classes.  These classes provide opportunities for the students to interact and learn with similarly gifted students in an academically challenging and stimulating environment. Selective classes complete their curriculum alongside the mainstream classes. The courses share a common curriculum but are taught in a way that challenges the selective students and allows them to fulfil their potential in all curriculum areas.
