Gifted and Talented / Special Needs

Extension / GATE (Gifted and Talented Education)

We have a multi faceted approach to identifying students who require a faster pace of learning, to cover a wider range of topics and to be extended.  We cater for these students through running quality extension programmes in each class designed to meet student's needs.  We also run extra extension programmes in Terms 2 & 3


GKP (Gifted Kids Programme)

Our school currently has half a dozen of children, who take part in GKP in the GKP unit at Sunset Primary School.  These students attend this class weekly, where the Gifted and Talented specialised teachers organise and facilitate the class.  This is a great opportunity for these children to be able to mix with gifted and talented children from other schools and be challenged with a wide variety of extension and enrichment tasks.


ESOL (English as a second language)

We are very fortunate to have qualified English Second Language tutors.  Non-english speaking children have four days per week of lessons depending on their needs.
