Strategies to challenge and enrich student learning

The multimodal approach means that curriculum delivery includes a range of strategies to challenge and enrich student learning. This includes involvement in a variety of competitions, projects and co-curricular activities that should extend and enrich the whole child. We have a mentor program running from Year 10 – Year 12; in place to support students with organisation and study skills. We have a very supportive welfare structure and student wellbeing days are organised to assist with the development of confident and capable learners.

Our teachers are committed to providing learning excellence and undertake a range of professional learning activities throughout the year to engage in a culture of continuous improvement. We have a culture of rigorous self-examination and apply this to our teaching programs and practice. We understand that although students are identified as gifted and talented, they are still unique individuals and program differentiation is a standard protocol of program design.

We are committed to helping all our students to reach and exceed their potential. If you have any questions about our gifted and talented programs, please contact the Principal on: 4340 0246.
