Gifted Education

Staff at Curtin are skilled in providing for the needs of students who have been identified as gifted. Team planning and classroom programs include strategies to cater for individual student requirements.  Where appropriate, students are provided with the opportunity to access compacted and/or accelerated curriculum challenges to foster advanced skills and thinking processes.  Students are supported and encouraged to become self-directed, critical thinkers who are willing to be challenged in their learning. In addition to classroom provision, a range of enrichment opportunities are offered to all students. All students are supported to develop the skills to be socially and psychologically adaptable, reflecting a sense of responsibility to themselves and to society. Our gifted education programs are currently under review in line with the ACT Education and Training Directorate’s guidelines and  2014 policy.
