GATE programme

Gifted and talented programme provides a variety of learning opportunities to enrich and challenge our students. Students will explore new areas of learning, interacting with mentors and develop new skills such as problem solving and creativity. It is flexible in the ways it encourages students to extend themselves and take on new challenges. Programmes that have been offered are toastmasters, self defence course, visiting a falconry, high ropes course, workshops on film making and study skills, TED talks and discussions, high ropes course and writing feature articles on people from a different generation. Year 9 and 10 students can opt into the programme at the start of the year; at times they are referred by their teachers. The programme is delivered once a week or fortnightly for one hour within school times.
