From 2018, we have an Enrichment teacher who will work alongside and support teachers in Primary K-6 with the development and implementation of curriculum, education programmes and practices incorporating differentiation strategies and appropriate interventions using research and knowledge to maximise gifted and talented students’ educational experience. A broad range of extension and enrichment experiences are provided to meet the needs of academically able students through individual, small group, in-class or club settings.
The Year 3 - 6 students are continuing to complete open-ended challenges in an after school club while the Early Learning students will be part of a pull out group and are challenged through problem–solving and open-ended learning using STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics). Through challenging students to think outside the box, using their creativity, we hope to complete our projects and accomplish a variety of goals. Some of these include the acquisition of important life skills such as working in a team, vital social skills and furthering their love for learning. Upper Primary students also have the opportunity to take part in an after school Maths Extension club. Our aim in the additional programmes is to enhance the development of a range of literacy, numeracy and critical and higher order thinking skills.
