Gifted and Talented Program


Curriculum differentiation occurs from Foundation through to Year 6.  Students work within their zone of proximal development.  In some cases, students can be working well in advance of the expected standard for their age.  Problem-based learning and an Inquiry approach ensure that gifted students are working on challenging and complex problems catered to their needs.  In addition to this, Christ the King offers an extension program, covering a diverse range of learning areas.  The opportunities provided to extend and challenge our students include:
