Collingwood Area School is committed to providing for all identified Gifted and Talented students. With encouragement, support and opportunities to empower talent, student’s individual needs are catered for. We aspire to challenge all ākonga to pursue excellence and develop passion for lifelong learning.
Gifted and Talented students are provided with rich extension opportunities both in and out of the classroom. These include external competitions, interest groups and conferences, all of which provide opportunities for challenge and growth. Most importantly, our focus on personalised learning has re-emphasised the need for gifted learners to be provided for in the classroom. Focussing on choice and challenge, our dedicated team of teachers achieve this via a differentiated curriculum. We track these students throughout their years with us to ensure that the students are taking up opportunities in their area of exceptional ability.
