Gagne’s Differentiated Model of Giftedness and Talent (DMGT) provides the following definitions of giftedness and talent, and is used by the school as the foundation for its teaching programs:

  • Giftedness is potential (natural aptitude or ability) that is significantly beyond what might be expected for one’s age, in any area of human ability including intellectual, creative, social and physical.
  • Talented refers to actually performing or achieving at a level significantly above average in any area of human performance.
  • Gifted Underachievers:  A student who is gifted, but who has not yet been able to translate their potential into performance that is significantly above average may be seen as a “gifted underachiever”.

Gagne’s DMGT shows that the school has a crucial role in providing gifted students with appropriate opportunities for learning, training and practice so that gifted students can achieve their potential. 

Tech Talk is the school’s monthly newsletter of school stories and events. It is a useful way to keep up to date with what is happening in the school, and the P&C report can be found here.

The school enjoys a good relationship with the community, and has established a parent partnership program for Years 7-10.  The aim of the partnership is to strengthen the home school relationship and encourage student wellbeing. Parents join the senior executive once a term for breakfast and discussion on issues of mutual educational interest. Topics discussed are often related to our student wellbeing program, which is age specific, and various guest speakers are invited, and have included The Australian Federal Police talking on cyber safety, and staff speaking on their areas of expertise, as well as seminars on mental health issues; adolescent development; gaming and gifted and talented education. Parent input into potential seminar topics ensure the relevance and utility of the program.

The school is fortunate to have a school run canteen, and all profits from the canteen are returned to the school. The canteen is run by a paid manager, with the help of community volunteers. At the start of every year the canteen invites parents to volunteer their time. Their contribution to the school is very much appreciated.
