This position statement is intended to assist Principals and school communities in responding to the educational needs of students who are gifted and talented in our Archdiocesan community of schools.
Schools are committed to providing quality learning opportunities for the diverse learners within their classrooms. Diversity takes many forms.
“A Gifted child is one who performs or who has the ability to perform at a level significantly beyond his or her chronologically aged peers and whose unique abilities and characteristics require special provisions and social and emotional support from the family, community and educational context”.
