Gifted Awareness Week 2016



                                       Happy Gifted Awareness Week!
                     This week we highlight and celebrate the diverse gifts and talents we share in our school community. 

Wondering what giftedness is all about? Gifts and talents are words you may have heard banded around but understanding what they mean is actually not that simple! Giftedness is valued differently across culture, time and space. Although as a society we often look for indicators such as intellect and achievement giftedness is about potential. It is a way of BEING. There are however common qualities and behaviours that can be a starting point toward identifying giftedness in all individuals.
