Gifted and TalentedPRINT THIS ARTICLE
St Leo’s provides a nurturing and supportive environment where gifted and talent students can develop their potential and become self-motivated, lifelong learners.
The College has a successful Gifted and Talented program designed to extend and enrich the learning of our most capable students in all areas of development.
In Years 9 and 10 there’s a Targeted Class designed specifically to extend and enrich the most capable students. Students are selected for this class based on their performance in external examinations, classwork, school testing and social factors.
We focus on providing a curriculum that suits each student’s needs. Our teachers implement a variety of teaching strategies in their programs, to enhance the knowledge and skills of gifted students. Students can also participate in extension programs, and have access to a variety of enrichment activities both within the curriculum and through our extensive co-curricular program.
Through our Gifted and Talented program, we encourage students to strive for their best performance and demonstrate persistence, resilience and tenacity in achieving their goals.
