Gifted & Talented Education (GATE)
Arrowtown School is committed to providing for all identified gifted and talented students from NE to Year 8 with encouragement, support and opportunities to empower talent development and strength based learning.
Arrowtown School aspires to challenge students to pursue excellence and develop passion for lifelong learning.
Identification is an ongoing process and parent and teacher nominations are encouraged.
The adoption of the Modern Learning Environment and focus on Personalised Learning has re-emphasised the need for provisions and opportunities for gifted learners to be provided in-class through differentiated curriculum and learning experiences.
G&T Indicators and identification include:
Understanding beyond peer group
Creative, divergent thinker, vivid imagination
Strong sense of justice and humour
Intense curiosity about subjects
Task commitment to a chosen topic of interest
