Academically gifted class

Catering for gifted learners

The Southern Highlands Academically Gifted Class (AG Class) offers an opportunity for gifted children to

  • work with their intellectual peers,
  •  remain in their home schools and communities 
  • experience a rich program developed to optimise their learning and social skills.

This class will complement the excellent work being done by our teachers in public schools.

To learn more about the AG Class, please visit the AG Class website.

There will be opportunities for global thinking, extension and enrichment activities, student generated learning through negotiated contracts and the encouragement and facilitation of integrated learning extending into individual areas of interest. 

This one day a week class is for children in Years 5 and 6 who are eligible to enrol in public primary schools in the Southern Highlands. 

In 2020 the AG Class will be at Moss Vale Public School.
