Gifted and Talented Program

Academically gifted and talented students at Our Lady of Sion College benefit from extension activities, modified assessment tasks and opportunities to participate in external competitions.  The College Gifted and Talented Coordinator identifies gifted and talented students and coordinates individual programs to support them.  Parents are also encouraged to contact the Gifted and Talented Coordinator if they feel that their daughter could benefit from being part of the program.

The Gifted and Talented Program involves a range of in-class differentiation strategies which are complemented by a range of co-curricula activities as outlined in the table below.
