Gifted and Talented Programs
We have many programs in place to assist all children to learn at their optimum level. For students who need extra assistance in literacy, we have programs such as Reading Recovery (Level 1) and Toe By Toe (Levels 2-6). We also have special needs teachers and teacher aides who work with small groups of students. Similar assistance is provided for students experiencing difficulties in maths.
We also meet the needs of students who are operating at a level higher than expected, through special programs such as Wiseones, Tournament of Minds, Gateways, Gifted and Talented Days, and through providing opportunities for students to extend their learning in all areas of the curriculum. We also have a school based program called ‘Expressions’ that offers opportunities for all students to extend and develop a passion, talent or interest.
