Gifted and talented


Nundah State School considers the needs of gifted and talented students through our Students With Additional Needs (SWAN) referral processes for possible Gifted/Talented students. Through successful identification, differentiated curriculum provisions and whole school offerings, our school aims to ensure that the learning needs of these students are addressed.

There are multiple opportunities that the school community has embraced for engaging gifted and talented students including, International competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS), clubs (Science, Chess, Robotics, Creative writing, Choirs), Student Council. Curriculum compacting and acceleration, either by subject or whole year level, have also been successfully employed, based on the specific needs of individual students. Our primary focus continues to be the daily differentiation of all class lessons, so that students are able to learn at their level of ability.
