Students who are identified as Gifted and Talented are supported through application and/or invitation to the Schools of Excellence (Humanities, STEM, Art, Drama, AMP, RLX). Students in these classes may access accelerated learning, curriculum compaction and extension activities.
Students who are identified as High Achievers/Gifted and Talented may also be invited to sit the Higher Ability Selection Test (HAST) to help collect more comprehensive data on their abilities. This data will also help the school make decisions about support and pathways for these students. For more information on the HAST test, please visit the Australian Council for Educational Research website.
These students are also offered various opportunities to extend their abilities and experience through external examinations such as the ICAS tests, the Australian Mathematics Competition, the Australian Geography Competition etc.
