Primary Enrichment Program

The program caters for gifted and talented children by providing enrichment and challenge activities which will broaden the children's perspective on learning. The focus will be on the use of higher order thinking skills and problem-solving based learning. Activities will complement the Stage 3 curriculum with the aim of extending and deepening students' knowledge and understanding. There will be no overlap with the standard Stage 3 and Stage 4 curriculum.

The days will run as a series of workshops which will enable students to be immersed in particular topics and mini projects. The benefits of the immersion technique allows for indepth processing of the knowledge to be acquired and high quality work to be produced. Tasks will require students to collaborate with their peers in the project and to network with each other.

This program is a collaborative local public schools initiative.
