The approach to working with Gifted/Talented students is based on a collaborative strategy. The Class teacher and the staff responsible for extension Mathematics and extension English discuss individual students’ requirements and strengths based on both formal and informal assessments and parent referrals. From this, a plan is negotiated to best cater for that student.

Currently, students with special talents are working through a range of different programs including; extension writing, regular problem-solving classes and small group workshops on problem solving.

The school also has a policy of promoting differentiated programs and activities within all classrooms, to provide enrichment or support for the range of abilities and interests within any given class group. Opportunities to participate in competitions and additional creative activities is actively fostered.

Ongoing parent consultations
with the staff involved with Enrichment and Extension are available on request and strongly encouraged as a means of the school gaining a better understanding of the student.
