Gifted & Talented Education
Every girl is unique and will experience different learning needs at different times. Most importantly, every girl needs to experience challenge and success to build her resilience and wellbeing and to reach their full academic potential.
In the Classroom
All SCEGGS teaching and learning programs include enrichment, extension and challenge activities for our gifted students. Some girls will complete different work on the same topic area, while others may cover additional texts or novels, comparing these to work completed by the rest of the class.
Sometimes, other curriculum flexibility may be more appropriate for a particular student, such as the study of additional electives or a program of acceleration in one or more subjects.
Outside the Classroom
Additional higher order thinking skills may also be encouraged outside the classroom in challenging cross-curricular activities such as Future Problem Solving or Tournament of the Minds.
