Gifted Education Program
Our EDGE (Extended, Differentiated and Gifted Education) program is designed to provide all students with challenge and stretch. Our EDGE Coordinator works with teachers to complement and enrich the curriculum in our classrooms, whilst also leading additional activities to ensure gifted and talented students can extend themselves by participating in other rigorous and stimulating learning opportunities.
The program focuses on developing the skills of creativity, critical thinking and collaboration through the disciplines of Philosophy, STEM, Critical Literacy and Design Thinking.
Students are able to work with a range of specialists including our Scientist in Residence, School Psychologist, Old Scholar professionals and external industry experts to gain real-world perspectives and insights. They also have the opportunity to showcase their creative talents by publishing and contributing works to our annual Arts Journal, Out of the Blue.
Many of our girls put their learning to the test through competitions and other external stretch activities. Year after year, their passion and dedication yield local, national and international accolades with highlights across the da Vinci Decathlon, Philosophy, Ethics, Linguistics, STEM and more.
