Gifted/High Ability Education

The Broken Bay Diocesan School System is committed to the education of gifted/high ability students in an inclusive setting.

Such students are found across all cultures and socio-economic backgrounds and have diverse learning needs.  The Catholic Worldview obliges schools and teachers to respect and understand the unique dignity of each student in their care and promote equity and excellence.

Each gifted learner is a unique individual with their own abilities, needs and personal context. Gifted/high ability students learn differently and therefore require a differentiated program to ensure that they are learning at a level that challenges and extends them and provides flexible pathways.

Strategies may include:

  • Differentiated curriculum
  • Extension tasks
  • Enrichment programs
  • Acceleration
  • Online Learning
  • Extra-curricular activities
  • Professional Learning for teachers
  • External support from the CSO Education Officer for Gifted Education
